Focus on fellowship, culture building, vision and innovation
On November 28, we went to San Fransisco on a four day conference.
Undoubtedly, our conferences are among the major highlights of the year. There is a true joy in being together, thinking together and being formed together.
During intense days we have talked about vision and meaning, equality and sustainability, communication and culture, future trends and development.
Inspiration, meetings and future collaborations
We had the honour of visiting the construction company DPR south of San Fransisco, which is characterized by its deeply rooted and extensive work with VDC (Virtual Design and Construction).
Eric Lamb, one of the founders of DPR, attended the meeting and talked thoroughly and inspiringly about their techniques, methodologies and processes - developed during long-term collaboration with Stanford University.
The same week, we visited Stanford University and its Center for Integrated Facility Engineering (CIFE).
Professor Martin Fischer and a number of PhD students presented current research, where topics such as blockchain and artificial intelligence are becoming increasingly important.
Plan B showed examples from our latest projects within Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), data mining and Business Intelligence (BI).
We had some inspiring and highly valuable days in Silicon Valley and will continue our exchange with both DPR and CIFE through some of our assignments in Sweden.
