AutoCodes Project Aims to Change Industry

Austin, TX, December 13, 2011 — Fiatech has a plan to permanently transform the way construction project code review is conducted in North America. That plan, the AutoCodes Project, aims to make the building regulatory process faster, more uniform, and ultimately more competitive by applying advanced technology.

The Fiatech AutoCodes Project, viewed by many analysts of the capital projects industry as a potential game-changer, now is moving into its second development and testing phase and is on schedule. The project focuses on delivering automated code-check technology to be used with virtual 3D construction models or BIMs (Building Information Models).

The Fiatech Board of Advisors recently approved the launch of a major funding initiative for the AutoCodes Project. Fiatech members Target Corporation and Kaiser Permanente have expressed keen interest in the project.

Corporate donors will have access to the AutoCode Project activity updates and deliverables as well as opportunities to contribute technical and market-specific expertise. Donor benefits also include:

  • Positioning to take early advantage of the benefits as an early adopter through donors' awareness of the project as it develops.
  • Accelerated delivery of the automated code review process that will benefit business and the bottom line.
  • In-depth knowledge of automated process optimization and the creation of models and processes that support it.
  • The transformation of a debilitated, inconsistent process into an efficient one with predictable costs.

The AutoCodes Project status, participation, and donation details can be found on the Fiatech web site.
