Focusing on the future of Construction Technologies
Driven by pioneering thinkers and the latest innovations - the Emerging Realities Conference will explore and interrogate the next generation of construction technologies. From ground-breaking onsite advances and offsite manufacturing approaches to the development of new materials and digital engineering. Under the banners of Technological, Productivity & Application - expert speakers will reveal how emerging advancements can be assessed and selected to improve construction practices together with outlining the industry evolution required to implement and embrace change.
Technological & Productivity
Conference speakers will scrutinise the way onsite innovations such as robotics, virtual reality and artificial intelligence, are set to radically change the construction arena. Featuring the latest inventions being used to augment and assist onsite operatives, from smart helmets and electric exoskeletons to robotic brick layers and the latest 3D printing devices that can digitally 'pour' concrete buildings, as well as the technical capabilities of drones. Emerging Realities Conference will focus on new technologies and techniques that will augment human resources to establish more dynamic approaches and directly tackle the ongoing construction productivity conundrum. Those who are making radical efficiencies will demonstrate how productivity gains can be delivered through the implementation of new strategies and digital technologies.
Emerging Realities Conference will focus on the following key themes:
Network with like-minded industry professionals and leaders to gain valuable intelligence from those who are instrumental in driving change. Emerging Realities will reveal how advancements can be assessed and selected to improve construction practices together with outlining the industry evolution required to implement change and embrace the fourth industrial revolution to:
· Improve communication, integration and collaboration
