Digital Engineering practices have been proven to drive efficiency, create better value, enhance productivity, and significantly reduce risk. But ‘going digital’ is complex, and Australia’s AEC industry will need to adapt - not only to remain viable in a highly competitive international environment, but also to harness the innumerable benefits of BIM and DE throughout the entire asset life cycle.
The inaugural Building the Future with Digital Engineering conference will bring together key project stakeholders across a range of industries to enhance communication flows, address common DE challenges, and work towards delivering better outcomes for all parties.
Overcome hurdles, hear insights & network with peers on
- Driving DE for public sector projects
- Supporting stakeholders throughout the transition to digital
- Managing complex data and information flows
- Increasing BIM interoperability with openBIM
- Utilising DE for better asset management
