CAMBRIDGE, England, November 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry.

Plastic Logic and PrintLess Plans have worked together to develop a medium
format flexible display for use on-and-off site by the AEC industry. PrintLess
Plans selected Plastic Logic's display technology as the best suited to the
application. A working prototype will be shown at GreenBuild International
Conference and Expo, Philadelphia, November 20 ^th - 22 ^nd .
Previous attempts to replace hard copy plans on construction sites have
largely failed due to the challenges of making a sufficiently large display
which is robust, lightweight, low power and can be folded or rolled up.
Plastic Logic's electrophoretic display (EPD) meets these criteria. The
technology is unbreakable, flexible, daylight-readable, lightweight and only
uses power to update the image. The EPD offering combines Plastic Logic's
unique flexible OTFT backplane with technology from E ink™, the market leader
for flexible EPD materials.
The project timescales have been aggressive, but commenting on this, Indro
Mukerjee , CEO Plastic Logic, stated: 'With our experience, fast prototyping
and agile manufacturing capabilities, we are able to make such ideas become
reality.' Indro added: 'Plastic Logic and PrintLess Plans are looking forward
to demonstrating the future of the on-site plan display to the 30,000
attendees at GreenBuild.'
The global construction industry is forecast to grow by 70% from
US$7.9trillion to US$15trillion by 2020 (Vertical Edge Ltd.) and traditional
plan printing, document management and circulation accounts for up to 10% of
the value of a construction project.
