Digital Built Australia in practice (how we can transform the built environment)

Two weeks ago, we launched our first Policy Primer of the year titled Digital Built Australia. It is part of a series of similar documents we will publish this year to highlight important policy issues we believe need to be advanced in the lead up to the 2019 Australian federal election.

The Digital Built Australia policy primer outlines a suite of policy recommendations for building greater productivity within the construction sector and accelerating the reduction of built environment-related greenhouse gas emissions through the greater adoption of technology and data solutions. The policy document proposes this by using tools such as Building Information Modelling and the Internet of Things as a platform for real-time optimisation and the predictive analytics of infrastructure asset performance.

As a follow up to the release of Digital Built Australia, we have assembled a suite of articles written by a selection of our partner companies which are demonstrating strong leadership in the digital transformation of the built environment.

PCSG’s Gavin Cotterill leads the discussion outlining “The drive for a ‘Digitally Built’ Australia”, and the benefits it could deliver to Australian cities. Read it here >>

In their article, Aurecon’s Jacob Lindsay and Matt Coetzee ask the question: “Could breeding a ‘digital twin’ save our ‘dying’ cities?”. Read it here >>

And finally, Matthew Mackay of Arcadis explores “BIM’s big promise and five considerations to get it right”. Read it here >>
