The UK Government’s Infrastructure and Projects Authority has set out more plans to increase efficiency of the industry in a 43-page document entitled Transforming Infrastructure Performance.

The document sets out plans to change the way infrastructure is planned, procured and delivered. It follows a commitment in last month’s Budget and Sector Deal agreement to favour offsite construction on major public projects from 2019.

FutureScot is delighted to announce BIM & Digital Transformation Scotland 2018 – Towards a Digital Built Scotland, a full-day conference examining Scotland’s ‘digital revolution’ for the built environment.

The digital transformation of the industry is well underway, offering a new paradigm for efficiencies in project delivery, equating to what industry experts are calling a ‘digital construction revolution’.

This conference will bring together industry experts to discuss innovative ways to improve performance, efficiency, data management and reduce costs, as well as examine new technologies and subsequent impact across the public and private sectors.

At the heart of the plan, reports the Chartered Institute of Building, is to use “digital technology and innovation to improve the way we deliver and extract maximum whole-life value from infrastructure, including through supporting effective delivery of the Digital Built Britain programme and building on examples of good practice such as smart motorways”.
