With Digital Construction Week fast approaching, here are some reasons why you simply cannot miss out on this innovation spectacle.
From updates on UK Government Strategy to free BIM clinics, all the latest on drone racing and VR, plus information on live 3D printing and robotics demos taking place throughout the exhibition, below are ten reasons to get to the London ExCeL next Wednesday and Thursday.
There are exclusive updates on the Government’s Digital Built Britain strategy, with the chance to meet the DBB core team (Mark Bew, David Philp, Fiona Moore, Alex Luck, Terry Stocks) at the show with Innovate UK.
The future of the built environment, the proposed £250m sector deal, and the strategic shift needed for the transformation of the industry will be discussed with the likes of Mark Bew and Andrew Wolstenholme in the main conference.
There will be over 100 hours of free to attend seminars, spanning six different areas; Visualisation, Geospatial, Industry 4.0, Tech, BIM Village and Digital Built Environment. Plus, visitors can sign up to free ‘BIM Clinics’.
You will be able to meet the ‘teams behind the tech’ in the DCW exhibition, through a mixture of interactive workshops and live demos.
Construction Scotland’s Innovation Centre will be demonstrating the tech and expertise available to the industry via their new ‘innovation factory’ in Glasgow, with opportunities to check out their AR/VR kit.
In terms of robotics and automation, the latest developments from The Design Computation Lab will be on show. The new research laboratory at The Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London will present its latest developments including a demo of an industrial robot fabricating the building elements of an assembled structure live at the show.
All the very latest in the wonderful world of VR and AR will be showcased, including a focus on the business case and practical application of AR & VR in the built environment, using HTC Vives and several mobile VR systems.
Come to meet the teams behind key infrastructure projects including Thames Tideway and HS2 who will be on hand to offer their experience and advice on their respective projects.
The DCW Drone Challenge looks sure to amaze, where competitors get the chance to navigate their own UAV along a race track, with trophies and prizes up for grabs.
Finally, there will be the chance to unwind at the ‘after hours’ DCW official drinks reception, giving exhibitors an ideal chance to let their hair down, whilst talking about the industry.
