Peter Brouwer and Erik Nieuwenhuis share their vision of transforming the international construction industry through the power of collaboration. They highlight the need to connect construction companies based on sustainability, quality, and expertise, rather than operating in isolated silos. They emphasize that the primary obstacle to successful collaboration often lies in the ego of CEOs and founders. By setting aside ego and embracing an eco-centric mindset, they argue that construction companies can unlock new opportunities for innovation and exceptional project outcomes. Drawing from their extensive experience, they provide insights, strategies, and real-world examples to inspire a collaborative culture within the industry.
Lene Espersen has extensive experience in working with sustainability, first as a politician and minister, and later as the CEO of the Danish Association of Architectural Firms. Now, she’s engaged as a board member in several organisations that are working with sustainability both in the build environment and beyond. At the conference, she gives her take on how digitalization can help us push the sustainability agenda even further.
Hasan Alsofi will talk about the many advantages and the great potential in 3D printing building technology. He will also give his take on some of the challenges still surrounding the use of this technology.
The implementation of climate requirements in construction is among the most important drivers for the sustainable transformation of the construction sector. In this presentation, you will receive an update on the development of the climate requirement and how the Authority for Social Services and Housing will work with digitization and structured data collection to support requirements for the climate impact of buildings.
The Nordic countries are collaborating to accelerate the knowledge and tools needed for the green transition in the construction sector, and data and digitalization are key ingredients in this path. During the presentation, you will get a rare peak into the newest knowledge both regarding the data we are collecting together and the initiatives we have taken to integrate BIM and LCA and what tools we are working to develop.
Few people doubt that digitalization and a focus on data is one of the primary conditions for us to succeed in the sustainability agenda, but a lot of people don’t know how to get started and think of it as an insurmountable task. Based on experiences from other sectors this presentation will present ideas on how to tackle digitalization so results will come quickly, and how to make a seemingly insurmountable transition both tangible and manageable.
With the new digital tools data will become easier and easier to collect, but how do we ensure that the data is structured, updated, and validated – and what can you actually do with the data in the planning and decision-making processes? See a collection of practical solutions from the real world, examples of new roles and services, as well as examples of how all of this can be integrated as a natural part of the project planning.
The requirements to valid uniform data will rise in the coming years, and as such it is important to have a grasp on how to evolve and develop your business towards a smarter digitalization. Dansk Standard will give you insight on new and coming BIM standards and how these can be used to enhance the value of working with data and securing that the necessary information becomes available for everyone involved in the building process in the best possible way.
As it is today, it is possible to use drones for flyovers of building, and for example see if there are any damages to the roofs. The next step is to make the building inspection both digital and intelligent, and by combining artificial intelligence and digital twins with the drone technology we are looking into a completely new way of doing building inspection in the future.
Digitalization of building is a great focus point in the municipalities, and the work with making the building more efficient represents a huge potential. Hear KL present a collection of different cases, where they through public private collaboration have had success with delivering concrete results on both CO2 emissions and the economical bottom-line.
Digitalization plays a decisive part in the green transition of the building industry, but how far along are we in the work with building and operation data? What initiatives are already in process? And what are the country’s building owners and operators occupied with currently? This discussion is facilitated by Bygherreforeningen.
Facilitator: Henrik L. Bang, CEO, Bygherreforeningen
Copenhagen Municipality will share concrete experiences and ambitions in working with sustainability, the usage and potential in digitizing more aspects, and why things are not always easy to implement.
In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape in the AEC industry, organizations across industries are striving to harness the power of digitalization to improve efficiency, enhance customer experiences, and drive growth. However, embarking on a comprehensive digital transformation journey can be a daunting task, requiring substantial resources and time. This presentation, titled “Digitalisation and the Low Hanging Fruit,” explores a strategic approach to digital transformation by focusing on identifying and prioritizing the “low hanging fruit” – the quick wins that yield significant benefits with minimal effort.
Identifying and implementing emerging technology to augment the way we design sustainable spatial qualities.
“The efficient building” is the first 5 story development building being erected in Fredericia, using an experimental setup with focus on utilizing common digital tools. The building is now halfway through the construction process, and Realdania By & Byg presents the learnings about how digital tools and collaborative working methods can improve efficiency, reduce waste of materials and limit unforeseens in time and money, through a project carried out in reality. The project is a part of a comparative building experiment funded by Realdania and followed by the industry and Aalborg University.
In continuation from the previous presentation, hear about how Statsbygg’s approach to BIM and digital building information has helped shaped the new Viking Museum in Oslo, that Aart is architect on. Hear about the process and collaboration, and how the Viking Museum can be an example for how architects can work in the future.
