January 15, 2013 WEBINAR: AEC FUTURE SHOCK: ANTICIPATING AND PREPARING FOR TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE Predicting the future is never an easy business, not least the future of the construction industry. The past is littered with many a red-faced pundit who prematurely called time on wasteful practices, inefficient business models and antagonistic supply-chains. Information technology and technology-enabled processes like BIM have become increasingly embedded in the fabric of the AEC sector in recent years. Arguably the adoption of BIM technology has been a reactive step for many contractors – it’s here, it’s good, we should use it…but what does the future hold? This session will explore some key factors that are driving innovation in AEC sector Information Technology and ask how that might impact both the future of BIM and the future of the project delivery process. Rather than identify absolutes, this topic will offer guidance in the process of critically evaluating emerging trends. TUITION: The all-inclusive fee includes tuition, hotel accommodations for five nights, all meals at the hotel and all course materials.
