🗞️ AEC/tech Newsletter #27

👋🏼 Hi there! This AEC Tech newsletter supplements my TRXL Podcast to fill in the details of what’s happening in the AEC Tech landscape. Happy reading.

It's been a few weeks since I published the last newsletter, and in case you missed it, a few podcasts have stacked up that I think are worth your time and attention.

What have you been seeing develop in AEC tech? I feel like it’s been a slow start to the year so far, but maybe I've just been living under my podcasting rock. Hit reply and let me know.

Have a great weekend.
