It’s inaugural Digital Built Environment Conference - taking place in London on 21 June 2018 – will help firms and individuals to harness the capabilities of property technology at all stages of the property lifecycle.
“Digital technology has the power to dramatically reshape the way we work and the built environment around us. The pace of change is accelerating, therefore it is vital that the surveying profession embrace these new innovations to achieve efficiencies in their day to day practice.” Explained Ann Bentley, Global Practice Director at Rider Levett Bucknall and Conference Chair.
The programme includes key sessions for those working in construction roles such as quantity surveying and project management, as well as building surveyors and facilitates managers.
Topics to be covered include:
- How to enhance collaboration using BIM
- Increasing construction output using 3D printing and robot construction
- Transforming 2D designs into immersive digital models
- Using data to improve the maintenance and operation of a buildings lifecycle
Setting the tone for the day will be a thought-provoking panel debate where CEOs and industry leaders will discuss how technology continues to influence the profession, and what a surveyor’s role may look like in the future.
“Building on the previous success of our flagship BIM Conference and our wider commitment to developing the profession and standards in relation to property technology - we are launching the RICS Digital Built Environment Conference.” Said Sean Tompkins, Chief Executive of RICS.
