Digital technologies have had a significant impact on the way we communicate, work and shop. In the space of just a few generations, we have transformed a grainy black and white television into an ultra-high definition screen which can fit in our pocket.
In recent years, the construction industry has started its own digital revolution by introducing and implementing Building Information Modelling on public and private sector projects. The 2016 Government mandated use of BIM Level 2 was just a start, and we are now heading toward BIM Level 3, big data and smart cities.
After hosting a very successful BIM conference at the Titanic Building in 2016 with over 400 delegates from across the UK, NIBIM Regions will be gathering together again on 17th November at Europa Hotel, Belfast to host the “Digital Construction Live 2017,” RPS’ Stephen Henderson is a speaker at the event where he will be discussing how RPS is exploring the applications of VR for our industry.
Keynote speakers at Digital Construction Live will talk about:
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
Virtual and Augmented Reality
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Internet of Things (IoT)
Gaming (and other converging technology that aligns with construction)
You can experience these cutting-edge technologies for yourself in the breakout sessions and workshops.
Michael Shaw, David Ross and Mark Maguire from RPS will be hosting an exhibition stand at the event where visitors will be able to try out the VR technology we use to help our clients explore their design projects.
The “Digital Construction Live 2017” conference is free to attend, and it is one of the best places to learn more or to expand your knowledge of BIM and digital technologies in the AEC industry. Furthermore, you have an excellent opportunity for networking and to meet professionals from leading organisations across the UK.
