Impacts of Digital Processes on Urban Infrastructure.
The costs associated with maintaining and replacing ageing infrastructure are considerable and globally there are pressures to support economies and growing populations. There are some stories from different countries of an infrastructure crisis. There are reports from water shortages through to bottlenecks and delays due to inadequate road and rail provision.
Often infrastructure projects can incur significant cost and time overruns and larger scale projects can involve significant risk and great complexity. So how do engineering and construction companies involved in this sector start to address some of these issues and support increasing infrastructure requirements?
Digital processes can support and improve project outcomes. For example, digital workflows can improve communication, accuracy, efficiencies and reduce waste – these are just a few of the benefits. So how does BIM impact this and how do companies cross the river of digital aspiration, so to speak, from 2D to 3D and beyond to digital workflows?
This presentation seeks to address how to bridge the gaps and will show, with examples, how project outcomes can be more successful with digital processes.
