This is a re-post of a Blog I did for work, which is posted on the IMAGINiT Building Solutions Blog here.
If you work in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry then you are very familiar with the acronym “AEC” which stands for Architecture, Engineering and Construction. However those simple days of just one simple acronym seem to have passed us by. Now that we are living in a BIM world and collaboration is on everyone’s mind there have been some new acronyms going around that are trying to be more inclusive. I think the idea is that with BIM and the ability to have models be useful beyond just construction and continues being used for facilities management (or building operations) that “AEC” was not enough to get the point across anymore.
