  • How much functionality can you secure with a retrofit?
CONSTRUCTIONTECHX
14:50

Cognitive & Connected Buildings: Here & now?

  • If operations represent 71% of the total cost of a building over its lifespan, can you make a building flexibly adapt to the needs of its tenants?

  • Using cognitive capabilities for construction management

DRONES IN CONSTRUCTION

CONSTRUCTIONTECHX
15:10

Raising construction site productivity with drone technology

  • Removing the image of a dangerous, dirty and demanding job and drastically changing the work environment
  • Reducing the time taken to carry out land surveys
  • How does the further integration of drone technology impact your existing workforce? Can they work in tandem?
CONSTRUCTIONTECHX
15:30

The bulldozers have eyes: Using drones for automated bulldozer capability

  • Overcoming labour shortages: Humans working in tandem with machines
  • Improving automated bulldozer accuracy: How can you dramatically reduce the margin of error?
  • Are their broader applications for this in the construction industry?
CONSTRUCTIONTECHX
15:50

Improving site safety with drones

Construction sites are well-known to be susceptible to serious accidents. In this session, we explore how drone technology can not only reduce, but in some cases eliminate accident risk from your site.

High precision smart construction: A case study

•    Connecting equipment and information to cloud-based systems to improve productivity
•    Using 3D tech to minimise construction errors when setting up sites
•    Communicating 3D constructed models to intelligent machines set up at the site to enable precise earth moving work with minimum human resource
