The B1M


The adoption of technology and digital tools across the construction sector is transforming the way that projects are designed and delivered. From collaborating virtually in the cloud and providing complete digital twins of built assets, to the rise of wearable technology and even artificial intelligence – construction is in the midst of a disruptive digital revolution.

But why have we not seen wider uptake? How can these approaches be adopted across teams and embedded into established working cultures? What’s the business case for companies in our sector and what barriers do they face? How can we drive behavioural change?

Join The B1M for this exclusive session exploring how to take digital construction mainstream. Our expert panel, chaired by our Co-Founder and MD Fred Mills, will debate the key issues and take open questions from the audience. There will also be a great opportunity to network with like-minded professionals and exchange ideas.

Date: 23rd October

Time: 3:00pm-3.45pm 

Location: Innovation Summit

Time: 3.45pm-4.30pm
