What to expect during the event
There is an urgent need to transform the way we shape our built environment, we need to build fast, modular, and green. With sustainability as a founding principle, NEOM will reshape the construction industry, creating a blueprint for planning, designing and, ultimately, building the communities of the future. At the same time NEOM is an opportunity of unprecedented scope for sustainable living, technological innovation, and human progress.
NEOM is taking a leading role in the digital transformation of the international construction industry, by defining and implementing the state-of-the-art digital, Industrialized Construction, Sustainable and Circular technologies. We are building the present while we are creating the future. We “make it before we make it.” In other words: we build digitally first before we build physically. After a brief introduction to NEOM Company, the vision of the Design & Construction sector in NEOM will be discussed, including examples of using digital technologies in real projects.
• There is an urgent need to transform the way we shape our built environment towards into using Fast,
Modular and Green construction processes
• The Digital Master and Digital Twin delivers unprecedented value to the AEC industry
• The power of Data and use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning is hugely underestimated
• We tend to talk about Technology a lot, however the most complexity in Digital Transformations lies in
digitizing processes and changing the behaviour of people (training, change management)
• Working together is the only way to succeed (get rid of the silos).
