Rapid developments in digital design solutions, additive manufacture and interconnected devices mean that the construction industry will become increasingly data-enabled. How this data is used will change the way that new and existing assets are designed, built and operated and how users will interact with them.
A construction industry enabled by smart technology will be able to provide more infrastructure capacity with less capital investment and will enable assets to be maintained in ways which maximise their availability. Smart technology will also enable business models which reduce life-cycle cost and carbon.
New Civil Engineer’s Festival of Innovation and Technology is an exciting new gathering for the thought-leaders, decision-makers and emerging minds from the entire built environment to share the latest technology-led innovations making a mark on the industry.
