Developing an IT strategy for publishing construction research findings for CAD users.

Abstract:The Buildmg Research Establishment is developing a strategy for publishing research information to the Construction Industry using IT. In particular it is investigating the most appropriate methods through whch its information can be integrated into the operation of Computer Aided Design systems. The study wdl dso investigate how CAD can be integrated with Desktop Publishng to produce publications. The two techniques are different and the software and procedures are not readily compatible. This is because Desktop Publishing comes from a printing background and is designed for publishers; whilst CAD comes from a Construction Industry background and is designed for use by draughtspersons.
