Theme: Digital Engineering Driving Innovations



An exclusive platform for Digital Construction discussions

GEOBIM is an exclusive platform in Europe wherein dialogues are initiated across the geospatial and the Building Information Modelling (BIM) community for utilizing integrated solutions, i.e. spatial technologies and BIM – duly augmented by digital technologies (Internet of Things, Cloud, Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality, Big Data Analytics) etc., to intelligently and efficiently model construction projects.


Theme: 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.

Panel Sessions

Construction 4.0: Digitalization of the Built Environment

The construction industry is now ready for a new (r)evolution. Construction 4.0 is the engineering and construction industry’s version of digitalization of the built environment. It encompasses prefabrication, 3D Printing, robotics, AR/VR, drones, sensors, BIM, and geospatial technologies enabling digitalization across the construction workflow. The session will discuss how construction 4.0 is uniquely tailored to suit the needs of the engineering and construction industry and the multitude prospects for the built environment.

Digital Twinning, Digital Construction

The potential of using BIM and geospatial technologies in Digital Twin is often overlooked. Digital Twin is based on real-time, and real-world data to process intelligence throughout the lifetime of the asset. BIM and geospatial technologies are being used to collect all the data to build the digital model of the physical world. The session will discuss how the collected data is structured to create a virtual replica or the digital twin of the construction asset using digital technologies inclusive of BIM and geospatial.

GEOBIM Integration: Future of Digital Engineering

The integration of physical and digital software redefines solutions across the construction workflows. AEC companies are incorporating new tools to provide innovative solutions to complete the construction workflow process. The integration of BIM and geospatial technologies add value to the entire workflow creating capabilities to benefit the construction process. The session will discuss the integration of data from geospatial and BIM across the designing and engineering and construction processes.

Monetizing Investments in GEOBIM

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.

Smart Connectivity in Digital Cities

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.

Digital Construction: Moving beyond BIM to CIM

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.

Going Digital in Ports

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.

GEOBIM and the Energy Transition

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.

Improving GEOBIM workflow with Drones

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.

Roundtable Discussions

Digital Mapping of Underground Utility Infrastructure
Powered by BRGM

The half-day 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.

Digitalization Strategies of AEC Industry

The half-day roundtable will discuss the digitalization strategies of the leading construction and engineering companies from all over the world to blur the lines between physical and digital world. The session shall discuss how the AEC industry is taking strategic initiatives to develop digitalization strategy – inclusive of digital technologies and GEOBIM – to transform the construction industry on a whole.

GEOBIM Storm across AEC Workflow

BIM4 Engineering (Designing and Planning)
