Taking place on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 October at the Excel in London, the IET will be joining over 200 speakers for Digital Construction Week (DCW 2017).

The IET is partnering with BRE and BIM4M2 to host the Digital Built Environment Theatre at DCW 2017, which will offer a full two-day programme that explores the digitisation of the built environment, with an emphasis on the supply chain.


The Theatre will deliver an international line-up of expert speakers, including Alex Lubbock, Head of Digital Construction at the Infrastructure and Projects Authority; Paul Oakley, BIM Director at BRE; Neil Thompson, Chair of the IET’s Digital Built Environment Group; and Lars Frederlund, the international CEO of coBuilder.


Sessions will be relevant to architects, contractors, engineers and consultants, touching on megaprojects, as well as how SMEs can implement technology across their businesses.


As the biggest event in the UK for digital building technology, Digital Construction Week covers a range of innovations that are set to drive the construction industry forward in the next few years. The key themes of this year’s event include Digitising Construction, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Big Data, Wearables, Drones, Computational Design, Artificial Intelligence, Smart Cities, Materials Innovation, Project Management Software, Cloud Computing, Built Worlds.


The event will look at a new way of working for the industry – not just in the way buildings are planned and designed, but in the way project teams come together and how technology is being used to improve construction methods onsite.


The Digital Built Environment Theatre will be located within the main exhibition hall, where sessions are free to attend to those registering in advance.
