Digital Built World Summit: 22-23 February, 2022

Leveraging digital technology to create a smart, responsive, sustainable and autonomous built world

Digital technology is changing the way we plan, build, maintain and use our social and economic infrastructure.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) has already transformed the construction industry, using information management to drive efficiency in the design and construction processes. Over the next decade this technology will combine with digital twins and the Internet of Things – sensors, advanced data analytics, data-driven manufacturing and the digital economy – enabling us to plan infrastructure more effectively, to build it at lower cost and to operate and maintain it for better performance over a longer lifespan.

High-quality, secure data can improve how infrastructure is built, managed, operated. It is therefore critical that this data is captured and used effectively to bring forward savings for stakeholders and ensure societal benefits for all.

For this sort of widespread innovation to take root, the entire value chain needs to be considered and orchestrated, from investment through to the operation of an asset, creating a solution that suits the needs of each stakeholder along the way. Technology adoption presents incredible opportunities for improving the built world. However, it also requires a collective purpose to deliver the outcomes that matter the most. 

Enter the Digital Built World Summit.

The Digital Built World Summit will bring together senior leaders within industry and Government to discuss the digital transformation of the infrastructure and construction sectors. It will provide a forum where the collective knowledge of construction, real estate, infrastructure and technology experts can be shared to empower others, advance change and drive the adoption of solutions that ensure the built world is more sustainable, promotes wellness, increases productivity and enhances the human experience.
