Insight into emerging technology for capital projects

Data and technology is not just an enabler of change, but a driver of change across capital programmes and projects. It is an exciting time for the industry. We are seeing more change than ever before. We are already leading the industry in this area, and will continue to invest in developing our capability in data and technology as a key part of our proposition to clients around the world.

We will be hosting a breakfast talk to share our knowledge of recent technology progression in the construction industry and more specifically our experience in BIM (building information modelling).

BIM as a technology and management process is creating integrated ways of working for our clients and is shaping the future of how assets will be developed, delivered and managed across the construction industry.

We’ll be discussing how this can consequently impact operations and what you can do now to prepare your business to adopt this technology and way of working in the future.
