Digital Construction Week 2017 is offering more opportunities than ever before with a chance to get to grips with the pioneering technologies and processes disrupting your industry. 

dcw 2Digital Construction Week is in partnership with the UK Government’s Digital Built Britain Strategy, and boasts 5 themed free seminar streams covering: Visualisation, Geospatial, Industry 4.0, Tech and BIM. 

Visitors will be able to meet the ‘teams behind the tech’ in each themed area – with experiential exhibition stands offering demonstrations on how these innovations can revolutionise the way you work, with hands-on demos, advice & real-life project insights.

The show will feature the newly opened Construction Scotland’s Innovation Centre, showcasing the expertise and equipment available at its 35,000sq ft prototyping and training facility in Glasgow. Visitors will get the opportunity to see the AR/VR kit, Sawyer Collaborative Robot and 3D scanner, as well as showcasing a WikiHouse structure.

DCW 1The Design Computation Lab will feature further developments in robotics and automation.

In addition, the VR/AR Lab is set to offer the chance to focus on the business case and practical application of AR & VR in the built environment, using HTC Vives and several mobile VR systems to try out advanced applications used on real projects.

Finally, you can expect to meet the teams behind key infrastructure projects including Thames Tideway and HS2 in the Geospatial area offering hands on experience in the DCW Drone Racing competition where they can take control of their own UAV and pit their drone operating skills against DCW’s ‘stig’ racer.
