PCSG had a strong presence at this year’s Digital Construction Week (DCW) event with well-received presentations from our team on the key developments which are helping to accelerate the move to a more efficient built-environment sector.
The two-day event brought together more than 5,000 individuals from the UK and beyond to share insights on how technology and innovation are transforming the construction industry.
Attendees – including policymakers, AEC professionals, facilities and estate managers, CTOs and graduates – could take part in seminars and workshops, see presentations from leading industry names or even drone race.
The event was also a platform for the latest construction technology or ‘con-tech’ with robot site scanners roaming the floor and the opportunity to immerse yourself in the Thames Tideway ‘BIM cave’ – a highly impressive 3D fly-through of the super-sewer mega project sites.
PCSG’s speakers included Adrian Burgess, our Technical Director. Adrian spoke about how organisations with multiple assets, across wide geographies, could connect built asset information with unlimited geospatial datasets to more effectively manage their estates. He explored the role that GeoConnect+, the co-developed PCSG, Ordnance Survey, Group BC and LocLab Consulting platform could play in this.
“Many companies risk becoming data rich but insight poor,” he explained. “They accumulate vast stores of data with no hope of learning anything useful from it. They need to connect it up, make sense of it and make it available at their fingertips.”
Mark Stodgell, our digital estates and information management specialist, presented on “Getting a BIM badge”. The presentation drew on his experience with organisations including BDP, the international practice of architects, designers and engineers, whom PCSG supported to secure BSI accreditation in its certification to PAS 1192-2.
Steve Thompson, our digital manufacturing lead, explored the role of a digitally connected supply chain in meeting the global challenges posed by a growth in the world’s urban population and the need for supporting infrastructure and services and the replacement of existing, unsuitable buildings.
