A whole new digital state of mind

Digital Impact is back for 2022. The time has come to engage with tech leaders for a new learning experience. Take a deep dive into innovation and unlock a new realm of digital possibilities for the AEC industry.

When it comes to digital, it’s all about understanding what’s possible. Developing better skills, better processes and achieving better outcomes for people, places and spaces.

Digital Impact will offer Futurebuild visitors a new experience and a closer look into the digital ecosystem of the built environment. It will feature the most advanced technology and the most brilliant minds the AEC industry has to offer, delivering content to cater for all levels of understanding and adoption of digital construction methodologies.

Digital Impact will equip visitors with the mindset that will allow them to successfully navigate their transformational use of digital construction and shape their future thinking.

Why the future of construction is digital

When we use the word digital it has so many connotations but when we look at it in the context of construction, it only has one meaning: transformation.

Speaker: John Adams, Head of Product, Glider


11:15 - 12:00

Complete architecture comes in a sustainable package

With the increase in the growth of the global population, the population of the urban communities is growing at faster pace. To ensure sustained liveable conditions, certain measures need to be incorporated at the various stages of the planning process in the designing of the urban spaces.

Chair: Peter Barker, Partner, Ryder Architecture
Speaker: Jonathan Tarbatt, Director of Urban Design, Corstorphine & Wright Architechture

The Roadmap to 2030 – how the UK is transforming the delivery of social infrastructure

In September 2021 the Infrastructure and Projects Authority published their ‘Transforming Infrastructure Performance: Roadmap to 2030’ which describes the adoption of a platform approach (adoption of common, cross-sector, manufactured components) in the delivery of social infrastructure, including a planned mandate to be established within two years. ?

Speaker: Jaimie Johnson MBE, Board Director & Head of Global Systems, Bryden Wood


13:15 - 14:00

What world will we inhabit tomorrow? Who gets to decide?

Successful infrastructure delivery demands close alignment and collaboration among a wide range of participants, each with their own agenda, interests and set of information. But what does this mean? That no single party acting alone can effect real change, however greater collaboration will generate better results for all parties and the industry as a whole.

Chair: David Philp Impact Director, Construction Innovation Hub
Speaker: Arushan Mahendrakumar, Digital Engineering Manager, Asite
Speaker: Duncan Reed, Business Development Manager, Strategic Accounts and Major Projects, Trimble
Speaker: Dr Victoria Hutchinson, Environment Practice Director, Infrastructure, Atkins Global


14:15 - 15:00

Exploiting data to improve how we plan, design and build sustainable assets

The drive towards sustainable buildings is significantly growing and this can be attributed to a number of key factors which are having a huge impact on the AEC industry, particularly over growing concerns for climate change and wastage of energy and resources.

Speaker: Dr Graham Kelly, Director, BIM Academy


15:15 - 16.00

Healthy Buildings – Healthy Environment

The talk will delve into the details about what makes a healthy building, from the point of view of why we should care, what factors contribute to healthy indoor environments and what has changed in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Eszter will also explore the role that digitisation can play in making buildings healthier, including the role of sensors, data processing and current best practice. Finally, the talk move away from the buildings and touch on how the broader urban environment contributes to health outcomes. ?

Speaker: Eszter Gulascy, Technical Director, Mott Macdonald


16:15 - 17:00

How digital collaboration will transform Scotland’s zero carbon built environment

The Scottish Government’s target to achieve net zero is 2045, 5 years ahead of the rest of the UK. The challenge for the built environment to play its part in this is substantial. Digital collaboration will play a huge part in ensuring that the industry meets this challenge and is able to take advantage of the opportunities offered. This talk will discuss case studies from the Construction Scotland Innovation Centre portfolio to show how multiple approaches to digital collaboration are starting to have an impact

Speaker: Lynsey Bryden, Head of Digital Programmes, Constructing Scotland Innovation Centre
Speaker: Caitriona Jordan, Head of Retrofit Programmes, Constructing Scotland Innovation Centre
