Southland Industries has launched The Big Room, an online destination hub serving the AEC industry.

“The Big Room will be a great resource for the AEC industry. Not only does it include articles on the latest technologies, innovative building systems and designs, and collaborative project delivery approaches, but it is also a place to spark conversations among those in our industry,” commented Ted Lynch, CEO of Southland Industries. “We are committed to improving the industry and recognize the potential that lies in taking a holistic approach to a building’s lifecycle. To that end, The Big Room contains information that covers all phases of a building that owners, architects, general contractors, engineers, and building operators will find helpful.”

According to the company, the blog’s name and URL,, stands as a tribute to the collaborative nature of the integrated project delivery (IPD) method, and the Big Rooms that they rely on. Big Rooms are onsite co-location spaces that physically bring together designers, builders, facility operators, and more to form a collaborative environment. As The Big Room aims to promote collaboration, Southland is seeking contributors from across the AEC industry. Interested organizations can follow this link to get involved.
