Digital Construction: Moving beyond BIM

Major advancements in robotics and artificial intelligence – automation, connected systems and cloud technology have disrupted a range of industries, and construction is now next in line. A recent report by World Economic Forum highlights that full-scale digitization of the construction industry – including BIM, AR, 3D printing, and even autonomous construction – could save up to $1.7 trillion globally within 10 years. These digital technology megatrends will be the game-changer for the industry to meet global needs in the future. Construction and infrastructure stakeholders will deliberate how the industry can move further in its digital transformation journey beyond BIM.
