Join us for a week of live webinars with some of the leaders in the industry, paving the way for digital construction. Register below for all of the sessions, and keep up to date with our digital construction programmes on Building, Building Design and Housing Today.

Register below, and keep up-to-date with the programme over the coming weeks as we’ll be introducing our keynotes, speakers and further sessions. 

Monday 18th October: Collaboration

11.30 - 12.30

  • Keynote to be announced.

    2.00 - 3.00pm

    • How industry-wide collaboration is the key to meeting our sustainability targets
    • If we are going to see the changes required to meet our sustainability targets, then we are going to have to collaborate and share information.

      If we are going to see the changes required to meet our sustainability targets which are so crucial, then we are going to have to ensure industry wide collaboration across all levels of the supply chain – from the initial design right through to the end user client.

      There are numerous areas where industry-wide sharing will bring about major improvements: from working together on the initial design specification, reducing embodied carbon in materials, right through to how the end-user manages their building. All of this will require collaboration across the project team, and a sharing of data and knowledge in ways that the industry has notoriously not done before.

      Join our expert panel from across the project delivery team, as we discuss:

      • What is currently holding back collaboration within the industry?
      • What can be done to improve this and what digital methods are available to help us achieve this?
      • How will an industry-wide approach aid toward our sustainability goals and beyond? 
      • How can we share data and information safely? 

    Tuesday 19th October: Innovation

    11.30 - 12.30

    My Big Idea Hear from some of the most influential figures leading the industry in digital construction, and the most innovative new ideas making their way through.

    Wednesday 20th October: Digital Twins

    11.30 - 12.30

    What is the role of digital twins in achieving our sustainability goals?

    Digital Twins present a hugely powerful opportunity to help the construction industry to better understand the energy efficiency of a building and its performance. As the need for our buildings to be net zero comes ever closer, our panel will explore the role that digital twins can have in achieving our sustainability goals.

    In this webinar, we will explore:

    • What are the challenges involved in reaching our sustainability goals in new and existing buildings?
    • What opportunities are available to the industry through digital twins?
    • How can they help us in reducing our carbon emissions and help us to meet targets?
    • What more can we do to help the sector realise their potential?

    Thursday 21st October: Delivering Transformation

    11.30 - 12.30

    Is a lack of skills threatening our digital transformation?

    As the COVID-19 response accelerates the speed and scale of digital transformation, a lack of digital skills could begin to threaten this. Digital transformation doesn’t just mean learning to work remotely: we need to focus on digital initiatives that improve productivity, reduce costs,  work towards our Net Zero ambitions and so many other parts. 

    Join us as we discuss:

    •  What are the effects of the skills shortage on the industry?
    • What steps can be taken to overcome these?
    • With the correct learning, how can increased digital transformation actually create more jobs within the sector?
