Here local and international industry experts, consultants and influencers from academia and other institutions will discuss the “Digital needs of the Construction Industry,” while unpacking the strides that have been taken, and the road that the South African industry still needs to travel to fully unlock the true value of these tools.
Topics such as 3D-printing in construction, collaboration across design and engineering, the Internet of things, Software as a Service (SaaS) and BIM (Building Information Modelling) are discussed.
At the same time, you will meet hundreds of exhibitors from across the construction supply chain. The expo with the latest technologies for the entire Built Environment, free workshops and a “drone zone” invite architects, engineers, quantity surveyors and any other professional in the construction industry to get to grips with the latest trends.
Says Programme Director and Executive Director of the BIM Institute, Vaughan Harris, “Whilst knowledge and education are worthwhile, gaining full understanding from Building Information Modelling – BIM means engaging fully with stakeholders across the board, from institutions, government, suppliers to FM teams – this is easier said than done. The debate starts here!”

Invited panel speakers include senior representatives from HDR International Executive (Germany), * CANBIM (Canadian BIM Council), SAIA, ASAQS, SAICE, SARMA,, CIOB, Cidb, Wits University and NMMU University.
