Leveraging Data in Academia and Practice: Geometry, Human- and Building-performance

Apr 06, 2015

Based on qualitative research involving interviews and observation of the work of 40 practitioners (30 professionals and 10 academics) across the globe, and sharing their recommendations, insights and strategies, this approach to research looks at how architects, engineers, contractors and owners – and educators in these fields – acquire and use data to make more informed decisions. There is a need for research that shows not only why design and construction professionals need to understand where data and analysis fits into their practices, but also how they can use data and analysis to meet and exceed their client’s expectations.
