Event Report: AEC-Science & Technology Federal13 Dec, 2006 By: AIA ,H. Edward Goldberg
Washington, D.C., event teams with Ecobuild to present hot topics, products for the federal arm of the AEC field
Last week I took part in the AEC-Science & Technology Federal conference and exhibition at the Washington (D.C.) Convention Center. For the first time, AEC-ST was held in conjunction with Ecobuild Federal, and AUGI CAD Camp also ran simultaneously. Ecobuild Federal/AEC-ST is billed as the premier event for green building, sustainable design, environmental planning, construction technology and information management. It's held in cooperation with the Green Building Initiative and endorsed by the American Institute of Architects/Los Angeles Chapter.p>
This year, more than 2,000 attendees had the opportunity to hear about the latest developments of the National BIM (building information modeling) Standard, participate in meetings such as the Facility Information Council and attend sessions and panels on subjects as diverse as sustainable buildings and BIM technology. AEC-ST and Ecobuild are the brainchildren of George Borkovich, who created the AEC Systems conventions that were so popular in the '90s. Read more >>
