    The Business Case for Adopting Big Data, Digital Engineering, and BIM

    By Dominik Holzer Associate Professor, Digital Architectural Design, University of Melbourne

    Over the past five-to-ten years, digital technologies have fundamentally altered the way the construction industry operates. As much as these changes have impacted architects, engineers, and builders, they are yet to have a major impact on the operating model of most owner/operators. With the right setup, there is enormous potential for increasing efficiencies and changing the way information gets managed within this group of stakeholders.

    As one of Australia’s foremost experts on digital design and operation, A/Prof Dominik Holzer will run a half-day workshop to explain how clients can maximise the potential of Big Data, BIM, and Digital engineering across their portfolio. He will address their impact on project procurement, as well as their impact on life-cycle Facility and Asset Management, thereby drawing on several years of experience in consulting large asset owners, both public and private.

    Panel session: BIM me up Scotty - Examining the latest developments in BIM, data and technology as the new construction normal

    The construction industry will always need humans to provide the knowledge behind the project.  This will not change.  But what will change is the way projects are created, managed and delivered beyond today’s limitations of the design, construction and facility management process.  Join us for an exploration of how BIM as a tool for managing the building and construction process is changing the industry forever and how you can position yourself for success.

    • Where are we in relation to BIM and how has it evolved over the last few years?
    • Reviewing real world examples of Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence, Voice Assistance, Big Trusted Data, Robotics, Augmented/Virtual Reality and BIM 2.0
    • Steps you and your company can take to thrive in the new normal by implementing workflows and technologies that fit your company and your situation
    • How does BIM develop how work gets done with project partners based on the new normal?
    • Mapping out the unification of 3D printing and BIM data with digital fabrication and manufacturing to help automate production of prefabricated assemblies
    Panellists include:
    Rebecca De Cicco Founder & Chair, Women in BIM and Principal - Digital Operations, Aurecon
    Dominik Holzer Associate Professor, Digital Architectural Design, University of Melbourne
