Details :

Infrastructure, which the UK government views as crucial to the economy, will form a central pillar to the UK’s forthcoming industrial strategy. And with the UK population expected to be 75 million by 2050, the majority living in cities, it is critical that existing and future urban infrastructure is fit-for-purpose and resilient to the effects of increased users and climate change.

However, new ways of working, underpinned by technology are needed to deliver projects more efficiently, and cost effectively, and with less disruption. This conference will assess the key challenges facing urban infrastructure and explore how collaboration can better deliver projects. It will also showcase some of the digital technologies that are helping to transform infrastructure projects.


Event programme

Session 1: The challenges and priorities for city infrastructure

Infrastructure needs to keep pace with the growth of cities and withstand the challenges presented by climate change. This session will examine the issues that face urban infrastructure and how the supply chain can deliver future infrastructure priorities.

Session 2: New approaches to managing and delivering infrastructure

Collaborative ways of working are increasingly seen as a solution to delivering complex projects more efficiently and with less disruption. This session will explore the concept of collaboration, including better engagement with the client.

Session 3: Digital technology to improving the delivery of projects

BIM and other digital technologies are helping to transform the design, delivery and management of infrastructure projects. This session will assess the latest developments in BIM for Infrastructure and demonstrate technologies used to deliver complex projects.
