12:00 SMART CONSTRUCTION IN THE CONTEXT OF INTELLIGENT COMMUNITIES DEVELOPMENT powered by ArcelorMittal
The fundamentals of construction have not changed significantly since the time of the Romans. We still use metal alloys, concrete, wood, glass and bricks and activities on site are often entirely manual, especially on small projects. However, in the age when new technologies are entering all industries, we want to find out what the future of this industry is? There is an increasing belief that new-available technologies and changes in working practices could now bring about real change. This belief has been brought about in particular by; the adoption of Building Information Modeling (BIM), the promotion of more collaborative working practices, sustainable construction products, circular economy and improvements in off-site manufacturing.
