Thursday 18th May 2017 – The Financial Times Future of Construction Summit

Venue: One Great George street, Westminster, London SW1P 3AA

What to expect:

Technological innovation is at the core of the most radical change the construction industry has been experiencing in decades, impacting the way all its stakeholders operate and perform and, as a consequence, increase profitability. According to the World Economic Forum, the construction industry accounts for about 6% of global GDP, with total annual revenues of almost $10 trillion. It also creates new jobs, drives economic growth, and provides solutions for social, climate and energy challenges. Notwithstanding, this is a very low margin industry; so increasing productivity has been a recurrent challenge.

Disruptive technologies and digital transformation are set to break through the low efficiency and productivity levels in construction. Traditionally lagging behind in embracing innovation, developments such as BIM, additive manufacturing, robotics and augmented reality, are taking the whole industry value chain to a new and exciting stage where stakeholder collaboration, energy efficiency, big data and social value are becoming the new norms.

The FT Future of Construction Summit will bring together developers, planners, architects, engineers, contractors, material and solution providers, among other actors pivotal in the global construction supply chain to explore how a technologically advanced future promises to enhance productivity and boost ROI.
