This year’s Constructing excellence conference will embrace all things digital and take a long hard look at how the industry is embracing Industry4.0/the 4th Industrial Revolution.
Are we breaking down the walls that have for so long hindered innovation through bringing digital design, digital construction and pre-manufacturing into the heart of so much that we do?
Do we have the skills and infrastructure required to match the demands of the revolution?
Are we as far behind the curve of other industries as we like to believe or is that construction as so often is the case unnecessarily giving itself a bad rep?
This year’s conference will bring together some lively and provocative speakers and panellists from across the built environment and the technology industry. Throughout the day we delve into how the industry can ride the wave of revolution and emerge as a stronger, more attractive sector.
