Digital Construction & BIM Summit




Explore all key areas of Digital Construction & BIM with our FREE CPD Training Workshops and Interactive Conference Sessions on the BIM Update, The Future of Digital Construction, Steps Towards BIM Level 3 and Digital Construction and many more key topics discussed.

With speakers and discussions from a number of leading architects, contractors and developers, the Digital Construction & BIM Summit will provide you a vast array of knowledge and insight to ensure you are keeping your company moving forward with latest standards and common practice, allowing you to improve efficiency and become more agile.


Start your day right at the Digital Construction Breakfast. Featuring a keynote speech on the impact of new technology on the Scottish Construction Industry. Meet and Greet with senior delegates working in BIM and all things Digital Construction in a relaxed environment at the end of the day. Join your peers to build new relationships, develop your understanding of key areas, connect with some of the pioneers of the industry and most importantly socialise and unwind after a full day of innovative sessions and features.


Visit the Delegate Lounge and immerse yourself in the future of the construction industry, with a wide variety of VR and Digital Construction showcases, allowing you to step into a new reality.

Many of the zone sponsors and exhibitors will be running competitions over the two days, with huge prizes to be won including the VR headsets, a trip for 2 to Europe, Michelin Star dinners and much more.


10.30 The Future of Digital Construction

• What are the technologies that will change the way we execute and manage construction projects

10.55 BIM & The Latest Technology

• BIM and the latest technological leaps in reality capture, mobility and virtual reality interfaces

• Rewriting the rules of how large scale infrastructure projects can be planned, designed, constructed and operated. Examples of mega projects

11.20 Building Architecture through Technology

• How do we utilise technology to properly execute the architect’s design vision, while also collaborating on the constructability of the project?

• How do we effectively communicate with all team members, while avoiding “information overload”?

• How do we use technology to slow down the process so we can “think clearly” and yet deliver projects on time?

11.45 VR for Real Estate: What’s Real and What’s Hype

• What exactly is VR?

• Is Virtual Reality over-hyped? Is it just for gamers?

• How did we get here? (Trends in digital marketing and gadgets)

• We know the categories like auto and real estate are typically early

adopters of new technology - how are home builders, developers and

realtors using VR right now?

• Where will Virtual Reality be in 3, 5, 7 and even 10 years?

12.10 What Technology Means to Architectural Practice

• Increasing efficiency and accuracy: how architects can harness

technology to serve clients in new ways

• Managing large-volume design programs, from prototype rollouts, to brand re-imaging, to ADA Compliance programs across multiple locations

12.35 Rethinking the digital designing process

• Influences of parametric modelling and digital processes on design

• Case studies of successful and not so successful applications of parametric design

• Rethinking the process and creating awareness of limitations and opportunities

• Comparisons to other disciplines and lessons learned from them
