  • DAY2 09.40MAIN STAGE

    Andrew Wolstenholme - The Future of the Built Environment (Keynote)

    It’s 8 years on from the launch of Construction Excellence’s state of the industry report titled Never Waste a Good Crisis. Much has changed and it’s fair to say the industry looks very different from the way it did back in 2009 struggling amid recession. The report outlined a number of “ideas for radical change”. Client business and procurement models should drive change; including greater efficiency through the delivery phase and better long term value across the entire life cycle of our building and infrastructure programme.

    So how far have we come and what does the future look like. How will innovation and technology play a role in facilitating the changes needed to keep driving our industry forward and what are the challenges we should be striving to meet. Andrew will draw on his experiences with Crossrail, perhaps the most ground-breaking construction project and offer insights and learning that can be shared with the wider industry.

    In this session we will explore the future of the built environment and the role that innovation and technology can play in answering many of the challenges we are facing as an industry.

    - Andrew Wolstenholme OBE FREng FICE FRICS BSc CEng, CEO at Crossrail and co-Chair of the Construction Leadership Council

2017 SESSION HIGHLIGHTS

  • DAY2 15.00INDUSTRY 4.0 THEATRE

    AI and the Journey Towards Smart Buildings
    As we create smarter more connected built assets the potential for artificial intelligence to make informed decisions grows. Rich data can enable us to make smart decisions about the operation and maintenance of our buildings making them more efficient and sustainable helping reduce our carbon emissions and create healthier environments for occupiers.

    This session will explore the future of smart buildings and the way in which we will manage our built assets in the future through the use of rich data and smart technologies.

    - Reid Cunningham, Strategic Development Director, BAM FM

  • DAY2 11.15INDUSTRY 4.0 THEATRE

    It's All About the Desk
    Currently, the majority of offices are fitted out with inflexible systems that the average office worker has little control over. But what if we could hand control to the occupant, enabling them to be more comfortable and productive, by providing a much more personalised and intelligent workspace, at low cost, whilst also reducing energy consumption? The 'All about the Desk' research project is exploring how technology and occupant interaction within buildings could be radically changed by drivers from mobile technology, pervasive networks, sensors, low voltage direct current and rapid manufacturing.

    - Michael Trousdell, Mechanical Associate Director, Arup

  • DAY1 12.45INDUSTRY 4.0 THEATRE

    Circular Building Platform - eBay for the Construction Industry; Making 100% Reuse a Reality
    € Billions of value is lost each year across the built environment when building components with high reuse potential are processed as waste, undervalued, or recycled at the end of their first use. Industry professionals see two main reasons for this: 1. There is no information on what is in our buildings 2. There is no connection between the supply and demand of reusable materials.

    What if this could be different? What if there is a digital copy of the built environment, with professional information on all our buildings and their components? What if we could share this information with anyone that could use them? With just one click? CBP is the professional platform that enables reuse in the built environment. We allow for the capturing of building information and we connect the supply and the demand of reusable materials. Put it simply, CBP is the professional Ebay for the construction industry.

    This session will explore the work BAM and IBM have been doing to create this revolutionary new platform and how it can help drive forward the circular economy.

The term Smart Building can be described as the application of interconnected technologies that help make buildings more intelligent and responsive, ultimately improving their performance.

Truly smart buildings deliver better environmental, social and economic conditions for their users and the people around them. They reduce energy consumption, improve occupant productivity and wellbeing. They create built assets that are more efficient to operate and maintain and ultimately more profitable to manage.

BIM

Building Information Modelling is a process that helps support and inform decision-making in the design, construction and management of a building or built asset. The Building Information Modelling (BIM) process, technologies and collaborative behaviours hold the key to unlock new more efficient ways of working at all stages of the project life-cycle. Ultimately BIM Level 2 defines what, when and how information should be created, shared and managed. The Government’s BIM mandate has accelerated change in the industry leading to the adoption of new technologies and processes along with more collaborative working.

GEOSPATIAL

The Geospatial Industry is witnessing change like never before. In the digital world, a precise understanding of the physical is essential. It allows us to better understand, plan, predict, and deliver. Greater access and analysis of data provides insight that wasn’t possible years ago and can help solve some of the many challenges we find in the built environment. Advances in this area are spawning high-efficiency methods for construction and operations. In the coming years, this will expand from simple positioning to take a wider and deeper role in the construction and operation of buildings and facilities. They will further unlock the opportunities for autonomous vehicles, the future of transport networks and will be pivotal against the backdrop of smart cities and the Internet of Things.

    VISUALISE
    VISUALISE is an Innovate UK funded project to develop a single environment integrated data visualisation and analytics capability to effectively analyse, develop and maintain smart, integrated urban infrastructure over the long term.

    Organisations such as Skanska are responsible for building & managing/maintaining multiple infrastructure assets for local authorities, transport infrastructure operators, utilities companies and facilities such as hospitals, schools. These physical assets are often widely geographically distributed and are managed within closed ‘systems’ based around asset type. Whilst data relating to individual asset types may be available they are not effectively utilised across multiple systems making it impossible to evaluate large scale data patterns. Efficiency improvements that could be achieved by managing multiple assets from a targeted, single maintenance resource capability are therefore not being realised.

2017 SESSION HIGHLIGHTS

  • DAY1 09.45INDUSTRY 4.0 THEATRE 

    Getting Involved in Construction Robotics
    There has been much excitement but also trepidation about the use of robotics in construction and engineering practices. They don't just replace an individual task but in many cases revolutionize an entire process. The automotive industry is perhaps one of the best examples of how they have revolutionized an entire industry. But at what cost?

    This session will explore how the construction industry can engage with robotics at an industrial level and put into practice the excellent, but academic, work that has been done in universities around the world to date.

    - Sebastian Andraos, Director & VP of Human-Machine Interactions, HAL Robotics.

  • DAY1 15.30INDUSTRY 4.0 THEATRE

    From driving diggers to driving robots
    The advance of robotic and autonomous systems into the traditional construction environment presents significant opportunities. The returns will be there for those that dare. The technology exists. The use case is made. Providing access to developers and investing the energy to reconfigure business models will stimulate alternative streams of revenue …things that are not yet known. It will open the door to attract the next generation of construction professionals, because few children imagine that they will be bricklayers or tarmacers …but many aspire to be pilots (drones) and robot drivers. Those who can make this leap will have their pick of talent and develop market dominating propositions based on unforeseen economic activities.

    - Michael Cook, Transformation Director, Kier Utilities & Thames Water Infrastructure Alliance.

  • DAY2 14.00INDUSTRY 4.0 THEATRE

    Digitising Construction through Automation & Robotics
    Construction technology has not seen any noticeable improvement in over a 100 years. Though architects today are able to design digitally with high precision, we still construct manually using the same techniques that were used over a century ago. This disconnect between digital design and the physical world has led to an economically and environmentally unsustainable construction process, furthermore producing buildings that are energy inefficient.

    At Scaled Robotics our mission is to digitise construction. Through the introduction of teams of mobile robots to the construction site that work directly from the 3D model, we bridge the gap between digital design and the physical construction site. This cuts out costly errors and increases quality, transitioning to a leaner manufacturing process.

    Backed by our lead investor and industry partner Peri, we are modernising 21st century construction.

Sessions will be carried out by a range of BIM experts from across the regions.  Classes will be limited to 15 people per session and you'll have the chance to sign up ahead of the show or just on the day.  You'll have the chance to ask more detailed questions and get in to the specifics of BIM delivery.

We'll be running a campaign to find out what sessions you'd like to see giving you the chance to shape the programme.
