We are reminded of the urgency of combating global warming every day. Warnings from experts, and the dramatic increase in the number of extreme weather events, compel us to take our responsibilities seriously. Construction’s entire value chain must be transformed to curb its environmental impact and protect life.
How can we stay on course for decarbonisation by 2050?
Is it enough to renovate instead of build?
Is using new materials the solution?
Is a different approach to heating and cooling needed?
Or should we radically change our lifestyles to consume less?
By 2050, 70% of the world’s population will live in cities. What will cities and our lifestyles look like by then? Imagining the city of 2050 requires us to address the numerous challenges that city dwellers are already facing.
How can we live with climate crises?
How will city planning, architecture and design enable us to withstand floods and heat islands?
How can everyone be given decent housing, while respecting the imperative of building less?
How can we rethink our public spaces to maintain social cohesion and community?
In this digital era, all construction and building professions are undergoing profound changes. New collaborative tools, data and artificial intelligence are sparking new skill-sets, and even new professions.
How can we navigate this transformation?
How can we rethink training and apprenticeships to support new entrants and workers?
How can we cultivate know-how and creativity in a digital environment that standardises practices?
How can we attract new talent and celebrate diversity within teams? What do the profiles of tomorrow’s construction professionals look like?
Professionals are central to the country’s ecological transformation, how can we promote and encourage these new practices?
Guiding the sector’s ecological transition, its successful digitalisation, protecting its business model and improving its productivity – the construction industry is under pressure. We must modernise our ways of working. This applies to everything: organising work, production tools, management of teams, marketing and customer relations.
How can industrialisation be achieved?
Should this change apply to the whole sector?
Does technological revolution have to happen at any cost?
How do digital transformations, including connected customers, disrupt our industry’s practices?
