Construction to Production
Rethinking the design and construction process to enhance performance and reduce impact using digital information management and better workflow planning throughout the whole life cycling of an asset. Thanks to Cree by Rhomgerg for hosting the third session of Acumen7 seminar about "Construction to Production"

"I am always impressed by SchockGuyan’s approach to solving difficult problems in infrastructure development. Birgitta and Annigna use their training as architects to challenge the definition of a problem and then design a solution that focusses of meeting the needs of the ultimate customer – the user of the infrastructure. The program to upgrade minor Railway Stations is a solution based on a process for planning, designing and delivering the upgrades rather than a design for a station. But the process has all the elegance of a great station design and more importantly it enables to become a great station for customers regardless who delivers the upgrade."
