Start-up Introduces Data as a Discipline™ to AEC Industry
Levcon Analytics has been established as a practitioner of collecting, auditing and leveraging architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) project data, as well as designing software applications to improve team performance and the owner’s ability to manage assets. Fueled by the continued digitization of designing, constructing and operating buildings, the founders of Levcon Analytics have introduced “Data as a Discipline™,” adding to the industry’s traditional competencies of architecture, engineering and construction.
“Our industry is changing, and we are using more data to design, build and manage buildings than ever before,” states Alex Jonovski, the firm’s managing principal. “That data needs to be purposeful and managed. We are unique because we have both the professional data consulting service and software platforms to support more intentional uses of information as we develop the built environment.”
The use of building information modeling (BIM) has increased in application. Industry trade associations, consortiums, professionals and owners alike are beginning to see the value data-driven workflows can contribute to reduce waste and lower the cost to build and operate the modern building.
“There are a lot of stakeholders involved in construction and operations. Each require certain information to do their jobs efficiently. Traditional practices have designers, construction trades and owners in separate silos, impairing the ability to adequately share and leverage data,” says Jonovski. “Levcon Analytics takes the lead on breaking down silos by identifying what data is most critical to success, who is responsible and provide owners with accurate information about their building for operations. We want to create a ‘central point of truth’ for every project.”
Levcon Analytics’ staffing model includes licensed engineers, technicians and software engineers who have a working knowledge of the AEC industry. Jonovski emphasized, “We aren’t just programming. We are practitioners of the industry.”
Jonovksi will be conducting a free webinar with Max Nevermann, project manager, to introduce Data as a Discipline™ and its innovative web application, Convergit™, on April 22, 2021, at 11:30 a.m. The firm is also offering complimentary Revit model assessments.
Levcon Analytics is in the Greater Cincinnati area and consults owners, architects, construction management firms and skilled trades throughout the United States.
