Digital Engineering Driving Innovations

Architects, engineers and construction companies of today are utilizing geospatial technologies to capture, process, integrate and craft BIM data in a digitized environment to ‘renovate the old’ and ‘construct the new’. The convergence of technology innovations, emerging business models, and a vibrant global digital ecosystem is driving digital engineering in the AEC industry, opening it to enormous possibilities and opportunities.

The construction industry is now ready for a new (r)evolution. Construction 4.0 is the AEC industry’s version of the fourth industrial revolution, which encompasses 3D Printing, BIM, geospatial, robotics, AR/VR, drones etc., to meet the uniquely tailored needs of the engineering and construction industry. Further, Construction 4.0 is fundamental to Digital Twins i.e. to build the ‘living’ digital world – based on real-time, and real-world data to process intelligence throughout the lifecycle of an asset.

Integrated BIM and geospatial solutions enable computational models and advanced analytics adding value to the entire workflow creating workflow capabilities to benefit the full lifecycle construction process. Integrated BIM+Geospatial solutions enable a full lifecycle information flow according to project owner’s specification – thus providing greater value to the design and engineering, construction, and operations and maintenance phase of the construction lifecycle.

Investment in geospatial and BIM technologies across construction workflow brings with it streamlining processes and increasing efficiencies. To monetize investment in new technologies; construction companies are capitalizing opportunities to disrupt the planning, designing & engineering, and construction phase. The session shall discuss how AEC firms are challenging the innovators to invest and co-develop solutions, thus, increasing investments in the technology industry to translate 3D Printing, modularization and robotics, digital twin technology, artificial intelligence, and machine learning across the entire construction lifecycle.

The construction industry is the least digitized sector; however, the industry realizes the potential of smart connectivity for it shall enable faster static operations and automation, presenting a real opportunity for the construction industry in developing Digital Cities. With the emergence of 5G era, smart connectivity is critical for realizing the smart cities of the future. The session shall discuss how the role of 4G and emerging 5G, IoT, as well as low-powered wide area network (LPWAN), are expected to support the numerous smart devices of Digital Cities at a lower cost.

In construction, City Information Modelling (CIM) is the new adaptation of BIM wherein BIM is being integrated into city planning and management. For construction projects, CIM allows for the already built construction to be modelled at the city-level. Particularly for Smart Cities, the transformation of BIM to CIM is being driven by a holistic, data-driven approach for planning cities. The session will discuss how BIM is evolving into CIM, and how CIM utilizes the data harvested by the many embedded sensors, IoT to build a collaborative environment for planning and designing while simultaneously enables innovation in the construction sector.

Digital technologies are transforming the way Ports are being planned, designed, engineered, constructed, and operated and maintained. Using geospatial technologies, and BIM – augmented by IoT, cloud, artificial intelligence helps to build ports by minimizing environmental impact, help manage assets and facilities efficiently at a reduced cost. Additionally, GEOBIM tools are being increasingly used for predictive maintenance, 3D modelling and digital simulations for building sustainable and productive intelligent ports.

Over the years, drones have emerged as the most highly viable tool for construction, significantly changing the industry. There is growing popularity of using drones in specially to replace traditional land-surveillance methods. Drones collect and report real-time and accurate data allowing construction professional to complete work faster by finishing off essential tasks of construction projects. Further, the drones are being used for digital mapping, an inspection of buildings and construction sites, monitoring on-site activities, and for security surveillance. Drones improve the GEOBIM workflow by creating 3D models, Orthomosaics, and progress monitoring.

Geospatial and BIM technologies presents a unique opportunity to accelerate energy transition. At macro, meso and micro level, GIS and BIM enables energy transitions to ensure CO2 emission reduction and to ensure climate change goals are met and the energy systems are restructured into more sustainable forms. The session will discuss the integration of data from geospatial and BIM to validate and achieve energy-efficient ecosystem in urban communities.

BIM is being used extensively for developing an automated design and planning to aid construction and building/facility maintenance. The session will discuss how BIM, geospatial technologies, artificial intelligence and virtual reality are being used not only for planning and designing but also scheduling project delivery.

BIM4 Construction is mainly designed to help contractors – and is associated with design and preconstruction, benefiting every phase of the AEC workflow. The session will discuss how 4D and 5D BIM, geospatial and other digital technologies provide added value for the construction industry with smart, innovative solutions and enhance project delivery.

BIM2Field is the discipline that concerns guaranteeing quality, working safely, measuring progress and monitoring logistics. The session hosted by Ballast Nedam will highlight the accrued knowledge and experience gathered on various projects with the use of drones, photogrammetry, tablets with special apps, sensor techniques, augmented and virtual reality devices and machine control

BIM4 Asset Management ensures that BIM (and geospatial technologies) is being used constructively and efficiently to ensure the infrastructure assets are being managed, maintained and operated according to the legal compliances

The roundtable is going to discuss digital technologies to help in building a real-time and 3D mapping and complex networks of underground cables and pipes to reduce inefficiencies and risks. Further, the discussions will be aimed at understanding the use of geospatial technologies in providing a cost-effective and highly accurate 3D maps of complex underground utility infrastructure.
