In conversation with Building’s Digital Champions…
Digital Transformation

Thursday 13th May: 2-3pm

While it has long been documented that the construction industry is lagging in digitisation, we are beginning to see real transformational change as companies make steps to digitise their processes. With the industry responsible for a significant amount of carbon emissions each year, it is more imperative now than ever that the industry steps up to meet the UK’s ambitious targets to become Net Zero by 2050.

Digital tools and advancing technology will be crucial in helping us to keep up with the changes and to improve both new and existing buildings. One example is Digital Twins, which present a hugely powerful opportunity to help the construction industry to better understand the energy efficiency of a building and its performance.

In this webinar, we will explore:

  • What are the challenges involved in making new and existing buildings fit for use?
  • What opportunities are available to the industry with advancing digitalisation and digital tools and software?
  • Could Digital Twins help in reducing our carbon emissions and helping us to meet our Net Zero targets?
  • What more can we do to help the sector to realise their potential?

Current speakers include: 

Will Squires, Digital Director, Atkins 
Kathryn Donald, Digital Design Leader, Max Fordham
Dr Stacy Sinclair, Partner & Head of Technology and Innovation, Fenwick Elliott

We’ll be catching up with Building’s Digital Champions, as we explore the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on digital transformation within the industry.  Hear exclusively from our Digital Leaders, as they explore the transformation that the industry is taking, and how they see businesses working differently in the future.

Current speakers include: 

Emily Scoones, Senior Computational Design Engineer, Ramboll
Tim Kay, Senior Digital Manager, Multiplex
Nelly Twumasi-Mensah, Business Projects & Change Lead, Faithful+Gould
