“Greater data sharing could release an additional £7bn per year of benefits across the UK infrastructure sectors, equivalent to 25% of total spend.” – Office of National Statistics. Developing new statistics of infrastructure: August 2018

Over 3 webinars during March we’ll look at how digital twins of built assets could enable integrated systems and public benefit, how responsive buildings can be more sustainable, how real-time data helps to manage our cities, and the potential of transparent impact-metrics to enable a sustainable built environment supply chain.

You will gain a better understanding of some new concepts and how adopting digital technology can enable waste reduction and inform planning. Hear about emerging platforms that can improve cross-industry data sharing leading to innovation and affordability in housing. You will discover more of the government’s Industrial Strategy Transforming Construction Programme, and the ambitions of the Centre for a Digital Built Britain.
