I often get asked... "What is Aeos?"
Aeos is a consulting firm
with a focus on improving how the Architecture, Engineering, Construction (AEC)
industry delivery projects to their clients (Owners).
Today’s design firms are
challenged with meeting the evolving needs of their clients. Constraints such as
time and budget are not uncommon and have been the “norm” since…forever..!
Today’s clients/owners and
their projects are demanding more, they are demanding efficiency in construction
due to social responsibility combined with the ever-increasing pressure to
economize construction and operational costs. Essentially we have to design, construct,
and operate buildings more efficiently.
Design consultants are
pressured to deliver more with less. Increased complexity of scope due to the demand from clients to be completed in less time, with reduced fees and less staff.
The AEC industry is evolving from a traditional process to one of a
holistic approach in delivering our built environment as opposed to a linear architectural
approach to design. Architects and the entire design team now have work symbiotically
with the entire project team, not only design and construction but also the
owner, supplier, trades, etc. Digital
Project Delivery has revolutionized the
traditional process of how we design, construct and operate buildings. This change has been
instigated by many factors including the evolving use of technology in the
design and construction process, such as Building Information Modeling, sustainability
pressures (social responsibility) and economics.
Aeos has arisen as a result
of this change in the traditional process of delivering design to one
of Digital Project Delivery where workflow incorporating technology plays a crucial role in the day to
day production of the delivery of today’s complex projects.
With the rapid development
of Building Information Modeling (BIM), and the demand for improved BIM
utilization to meet the project demands, design firms are struggling with the
implementation and utilization of BIM. This struggle is exacerbated by the
rapid development of technology and the increasing complexity of projects and
the “forcing” of the use of technology within a traditional process, resulting
in in-efficiency, increased risk, and reduced profitability.
The goal of Aeos is to
provide guidance and support to the AEC industry in improving how we deliver
projects in the age of Digital Project Delivery through managing changes in the workflow required by today's project demands.
Our goal is to help firms
successfully deliver projects efficiently, effectively and profitably. We help
design firms become profitable, improve competitive marketing advantage, retain
key staff and design a production workflow that enables them to improve utilization, reduce risk and meet the needs of the project.
Aeos can provide essential
services concentrating on digital project delivery production include;
- Digital Practice Consulting
- Workflow and Process Analysis
- Project Triage
- BIM Implementation

- And much more.
If your organization is struggling
with adapting to a Digital Project Delivery Workflow give Aeos a call to
discover how we can help your firm reach it’s potential.
As to the name…. Aeos is the
mythological horse that drew the Sun Charriot along with three other horses
across the sky for the Greek sun God Helios.
