AECX’s government sector is comprised of Municipal, State and Federal entities. At AECX, we understand that one of the primary goals for all government agencies is to cut cost as a result of towering federal government deficit and budget reductions. Our unique revolutionary business model allows government agencies to cosign their Idle Facilities Design Documentation (IDD) and recycle them into valuable revenue generating assets. We are providing government entities with a unique opportunity to serve its citizenry by truly maximizing the use of its valuable public assets.
The government sector has experienced steady growth despite slow advancements in other development sectors in the U.S. economy. Maintaining such expansion take management oversight, strict financial controls, and innovative approach for all public sector projects. AECX provides short term project cost reduction and long term recapture of capital design funds through prototype construction document repurposing.
AECX’s E-commerce platform for intellectual property enables customers to license, recycle, develop, collaborate and educate the AEC community for the purpose of improving our living and work environment. Our revolutionary concept transforms idle facilities design documentation into valuable revenue generating assets, as well as, provides agencies with rich diversified stock plans from our E-commerce platform and network of AEC professionals.
What opportunities are there for Municipal, State and Federal Government with AECX
Convert idle IDD assets into revenue generators
Increase government revenues by licensing facilities design documents (IDD) assets to qualified architects, engineers and developers
Reduce cost for future development projects
AECX seeks to serve the public sector by enhancing the value and capabilities of its IDD intellectual property, thus meeting the ever growing demand for local government fiscal performance on public assets.
How does AECX’s Government Sector support Work?AECX seeks to add government agencies’ computer aided design (CAD) facilities documentation to our Design Prototype System (DPS). The agencies’ documentation will be reviewed by licensed architects and engineers, to determine their completeness and compliance status to become a part of our DPS. The documents will go through a Secure-All multi-step process to remove all security and otherwise sensitive data from each document, this process is called “Prototyping”. Once the agencies’ documents have been prototyped by AECX, they will be placed into our DPS database. The DPS will license the information to qualified design professionals, government municipalities and other professionals seeking to harness the wealth of information within, as well as enjoy potential cost and time saving opportunities this data represents.
What benefits are there for Government Entities useing AECX platforms?The benefits of participating in AECX’s DPS are numerous, however the key benefits are:
Agencies will receive residual revenues from documentation licensing.
Significant reduction in future costs for municipal project development, design, construction, security and facilities management.
Existing Federal/State/Municipal documents will undergo continuous review by professional architects, designers and engineers for the purpose of improving facilities economic, and environmental efficiency and overall use performance.
Why is joining so important?AECX seeks to serve and support Local, State, and Federal Government need to provide safe and sustainable buildings and structures economically. Our cost effective approach to development meets to needs and demands our municipalities face each day. Let us give you grater options when seeking the right development solutions for our citizens.
Eben C. Smith, AIA
I am a licensed architect in the Illinois (Chicago) and Wisconsin area and I witness the wonders of our profession every day. I have been following the concept and progress of AECX and I find the prospect of generating additional revenue from my past hard work and sacrifice to be very appealing. Also, the idea that by licensing my design work on AECX’s DPS would translate my work into a capital asset could help me recover income from tax reductions is tremendous for design professionals like me. Translating and or utilizing my previously completed intellectual property into an ongoing liability free revenue stream is even more appealing.
The profession is changing as a whole. Our mindsets must also change, not only with the technologies being introduced into our profession but also with opportunities to grow our financial resources and knowledge.
Some Design work may be lost, but saving our bank account is equally as important. I look forward towards innovations like this in the architectural profession. I believe that this type of thinking will ultimately strengthen our businesses and the discipline of architecture.
