What to expect during the event
Digital transformation in the AEC industry has revolutionized the way projects that are conceptualized, designed, and executed. With digital technologies, the AEC industry has seen a significant shift from traditional methods to more efficient and sustainable practices. One of the key aspects of digital transformation is BIM which allows the creation of intelligent 3D models from conceptual design to construction to operation. This enables AEC professionals to collaborate more effectively, reducing errors and improving overall project efficiency. Virtual reality and augmented reality plays a vital role in digital transformation which allow stakeholders to visualize and experience designs in a virtual environment. Digital transformation has led to the integration of IoT devices in construction sites which collect and analyze data in real-time, providing valuable insights, enabling proactive decision-making and can be used to track equipment, monitor construction progress, and ensure the safety and security of people at site. In conclusion, Digital transformation with BIM, VR, AR, and IoT, the industry has embraced modern technologies that have enhanced collaboration, improved project efficiency, and enabled sustainable and innovative practices.
Increased efficiency and productivity using BIM technology. Better collaboration and communication between teams & stakeholders, leading to faster decision making. Enhanced visualization for design reviews, reducing errors and avoiding costly rework.
