I am pleased to be participating in this year’s BIM BOP conference hosted at the University of Southern California on July 12. My lecture, title “How do you eat an elephant”, will consider the digital transformations taking place in the construction industry and all the opportunities and challenges we are seeing in our present work at Proving Ground.
The construction industry is beginning to see transformations to supply chains that haven’t experienced disruption in decades. The workforce is being challenged to retool with new digital skills. Architects and engineers are seeing their work augmented with data-driven automation and increasingly capable algorithms. In his lecture, I will discuss trends related to the digital transformation of design, construction, and operations. I will then evaluate various digital strategies being implemented by design and construction businesses leading to a new future of work based on performance.
