    Panel discussion: digital engineering & construction innovation

    Examining how project requirements are evolving based on innovation, new technologies and client demands for new tech such as Digital Twins?

    Innovation and client demands have seen the industry move from BIM towards Digital Twins to better design, build and maintain modern projects. Those companies not embracing the change risk falling behind and ultimately this could cost them business. In this session we look at what changes are happening across the industry, how IOT is changing the construction landscape as we embrace the Brave New Digital Built World. 

    • Reviewing the latest technologies and innovations set to transform construction 

    • What are the biggest obstacles to adopting new technologies and how do you remove them 

    • Examining the trade-off between tech investment and value received across whole of project life 

    • The need for systems leadership to drive digital transformation in a complex stakeholder environment 

    Panellists include:
    James Glastonbury Executive General Manager, Engineering, Technology & Innovation, McConnell Dowell
    Georgina North Head of Technology and Innovation, Laing O’Rourke
