Digital Construction Week 2021
Digital Construction Week is a two-day industry event that examines how innovation and technology are changing the face of the built environment from design to operation. Digital Construction Week 2021 is scheduled for 24 - 25 November at ExCeL London.
The free event offers interactive learning, demos and networking opportunities. There are also practical CPD learning sessions through the seminar programme, which includes thought leading content from key industry figures.
- The Main Stage, covering the application and implementation of BIM.
- The BIM Village, exploring the potential of BIM to improve methods of work.
- BIM Workshops, focusing on the technical side of delivering BIM.
- The Geospatial Theatre, examining the latest trends in geospatial technology and GIS.
- The Innovation Stage, featuring live demonstrations and installations.
- The People & Change Theatre, giving attendees the chance to get their hands on the latest technologies.
- Visualisation Hub, showcasing 3D and mixed reality technologies.
- Tech Stage, providing brief interactive sessions with technical practitioners and real world users.
- Transformation Hub, covering business transformation, digitisation and emerging technologies.
On 24 November 2021, the Transformation Hub will include the session ‘Construction knowledge – the missing piece of digitisation’. Presented by Dr Gregor Harvie, Director of Designing Buildings, this seminar examines how the industry has completely omitted construction knowledge from the digitisation of the industry, despite the introduction of BIM.
Attendees at the presentation will learn about the work of the Construction Knowledge Task Group and how it is beginning to modernise construction knowledge. A route map will be presented, setting out the steps necessary to take construction knowledge from where it is at the moment and transforming it into ‘smart’ knowledge that can be searched and filtered with a single query, whatever its source, can be easily collaborated on, curated and managed, and can be accessed directly from within the project environment.
