How AEC is Preparing for a Digital Future

Construct AEC Education and Expo recently concluded its 2019 event in National Harbor, Maryland after four days of learning and networking. Architects, designers, and construction professionals all had the opportunity to discuss the latest trends in their specific sectors, and the concerns they have as well.

Specifications have always been something architects have wrestled with and had stay on top of for each individual project. Specs are different from state to state and due to their detail and scope they can be difficult to digest even for experienced professionals.

Paul Doherty, CEO of the Digit Group, and Mark Dorsey, CEO of Construction Specifications Institute (CSI), both work with AEC professionals to help assist with best practices and educate them on the latest technology driving the industry forward.

“That’s really what we’re here for, is for the betterment of the industry, helping people perform at a higher level and enabling them to bring their projects in on time, on budget and successfully for the benefit of society and their ownership,” Dorsey said.

Dorsey addressed CSI members in the organization’s Annual Business Meeting and General Session.

Doherty also led an educational session at the event titled Five Disruptive Technologies that will Change Specifications Forever.

The two sat down at Construct AEC Education and Expo to discuss the changing specification landscape and how professionals in the field can better position themselves for success with specifications.
