Are these industries not recognising they are real Innovators?

You think and wonder why Interior Design and Landscape Design are both here as we would we be wanting to talk about them?

Well the simple answer is that Interior and Landscape are both one in the same and they both be huge market leaders in the fields of Innovation and Technology.

Whilst both arenas still command the majority of their work being manual and visual drawings, technology is becoming more and more affordable to allow these two sectors to embrace technology and rise to another level.

Once this is then combined with 3D Design, 3D Printing, 4D Printing, 3D Visualisation , AR, VR and many more features and facilities that are arriving, the opportunities for these Designers is limitless due to what AI is delivering……

The one issue – is this lead to mass consolidation?

Can we foresee a time where Technology can lead to consolidation within the whole aspect of the Design and Construction arena?

Will Technology mean that anyone with access to Design tools could Dream, Think, Plan, Design, Apply for approval, Gain approval and Print their own house, office, factory etc?

Whilst many within the industry will dispute and say this is stupid and will never happen – let us just say that the majority of this is already happening and it won’t be long before the whole picture could arrive…

Furthermore, the arrival of Printing and Visualisation is clearing going to really change the Construction, Design/Landscape Industries within 2016 and these sectors really need to stand up take notice that they can be at the forefront….

The main problem that many of these businesses still are that they are in two sectors where physical and visual is what their prospective clients are wanting – and, they continue to offer!

Yet technology is now here for them to embrace and change the way business operates all together.

Whilst we have the likes of Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR becoming available to businesses, many still this as being heavily focused around the Gaming Industry – how wrong this is…

Yes, they may be focused around Gaming but they throughout 2014 and 2015 showed the intent that AI, AR and VR could really offer.

Yet lurking in the background during this period was HoloLens from Microsoft which so many dismissed – what a huge mistake…..

With HoloLens now releasing, they are offering the AI combination with AR and VR the arrival of 3D!

Their 3D offering means for example, that a landscape gardener could design the garden that you asked for. The gardener, then loads it on to a VR Headset to see the design overlaid onto your garden through the images/videos that they took. But, instead of this VR experience, HoloLens is taking it a stage further, where you will see the same design and be able to reach out move things items around to the way you wanting them. This will be totally a real life experience as the items will be 3D so you can see the design in more depth.

Also, why have the photo or the video?

You will be able to put on the HoloLens Headsets and actually look through the lens to your garden just as if you are wearing glasses. Then, when the design is launched, you will see the design in real life and in real conditions! Just think, the design was done and based on the photos/video taken on a wonderful sunny day, yet when you are viewing it, it is dull and overcast, how does it look now?

What happens if they came in the Autumn and it’s now winter? With a few clicks through the HoloLens programme, the plants change to show what they look like in Winter!

So, the same can also be done with Interior Design too!!

With this VR Technology now releasing – the big question for you as Interior Designers and Landscape Gardeners is…..

Are you ready to be the new GameChangers with the business world?

UK construction growth fastest since August 2007…..

News item from the BBC about the growth within the Construction industry….

#ServiceAddress #Service-Address #Construction #PMI

 

UK construction picked up speed in November with output rising at the fastest pace in more than six years.

The Markit purchasing managers’ index (PMI) for the sector rose to 62.6 last month, up from 59.4 in October.

The higher the reading above 50, the stronger the growth in activity.

The reading comes a day after a related survey showed manufacturing output also strengthening, giving the chancellor a positive background against which to deliver Thursday’s Autumn Statement.

George Osborne is due to provide his update on the government’s economic plans.

Tim Moore, senior economist with Markit, said: “Construction activity continues to spring back to life during the final months of 2013.

However, he said the pick-up was being built on a low base, after years of shrinkage or tepid growth resulting from the credit crisis that was sparked in 2007.

If this sort of pace can be continued into 2014, then the level of UK output will have risen above its pre-crisis peak by next summer”

The Bank of England’s schemes to boost mortgage lending gave housebuilders a shot in the arm.

Markit said domestic building activity was its fastest in 10 years.

Last week, official data showed the sector grew at 1.7% in the third quarter compared with the previous quarter.

The Bank of England last week unexpectedly curtailed its support for mortgage lending under the Funding for Lending scheme, amid evidence that mortgage availability had improved to the extent that it no longer needed support from that quarter.

Markit also said commercial construction grew sharply in November.

David Tinsley, UK economist at BNP Paribas, said the findings suggested the UK could soon recover the ground lost during the crisis: “These survey indicators are suggesting something like a 1% rise in GDP [gross domestic product] in Q4.

“If this sort of pace can be continued into 2014, then the level of UK output will have risen above its pre-crisis peak by next summer.”
