Résumé de la présentation

During this session we will touch upon current best practice and industry research from the UK on effective digital information management to enable digital transformation across the construction sector. We bring together a series of industry research and practice projects funded over the past 12 months to propose how we might evidence a digital workflow that enables a digital golden thread of information; incorporating energy modelling and analysis, parametric and 4D modelling and the integration of sensor technology to offer robust evaluation of the environments we create. We will outline our pioneering work on integrating sensor technologies to monitor environment quality and provide actionable feedback to occupants, owners and building managers with a view to improving occupant health, enabling predictive maintenance and achieving ambitious energy and carbon reduction targets.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
