The end of construction as we know it… Digital disruption in Irish building

Introduction

2018 saw the launch of the inaugural CIF Digital Construction Summit. Attended by over 300 industry delegates and an array of international and national experts in the field, the summit addressed many of the solutions to overcome barriers associated with digital transformation and innovation within the sector.

CIF Digicon 2019 will remain focused on the road to Construction 4.0. The event will focus on how our construction sector can move beyond the ‘catch-up’ phase. We will present a premium line-up of discussions on the latest digital technology within the build environment. At a time where demand for infrastructure continues to rise, and wider geopolitical and economic uncertainty is creating new challenges and opportunities for the sector, CIF Digicon 2019 returns to explore how key stakeholders can better collaborate to create a more profitable, sustainable and efficient industry via digital technology.

The summit will delve into the latest technologies and digitization of processes within construction industry and it will provide deeper insights into key issues such as project management & job site monitoring, VDC Technology, big data in construction and the road towards BIM 3 in virtual construction. The summit will offer an excellent opportunity to learn more about recent technology advances and to hear about challenges faced in complex construction projects from industry-leading inspirational speakers from both home and abroad. Besides the keynote presentations and panel debates, networking breaks will give the opportunity to gather together to share potential ideas and discuss emerging technologies in modern construction, as well as how to fully benefit from next generation field technology.

CIF Digicon 2019 will bring together developers, planners, architects, engineers, contractors, material and solution providers, and other key stakeholders pivotal in the construction supply chain to explore best strategies and solutions to embrace digital transformation for a more productive and profitable future…
