What does digital construction mean to you?

That is the question we asked several Building Information Modelling professionals at Digital Construction Week 2015, which took place at London’s Business Design Centre on October 21st-22nd last week.

Many people interpret digital construction in different ways; is it about streamlining the process from planning to asset management? Is it about increasing collaboration to encourage a higher level of data sharing? Are the usage of emerging technologies to improve projects what digital construction is all about?

Perhaps all of the three above statements ring true, and you can find that out by listening to the opinions of various industry professionals below. We spoke to the likes of Class of Your Own‘s Alison Watson, Digital Node‘s Rebecca De Cicco, Bechtel and Crossrail‘s Stephen Smith and more.
