Entire industries have been hit by a wave of innovative new business models and transformation of business process made possible by the exponential growth of digital technology. The built environment has been impacted by this trend but not at the same breakneck speed in telecommunications, media and banking.
The recent COVID-19 crisis was a reckoning for all organisations around their digital capability – with those having invested in a flexible working culture, robust infrastructure and collaborative tools – thriving. This talk will focus on how organisations in the built environment need to reshape and rapidly transform as we emerge from this crisis and there is an accelerated growth in the use of digital.
Earlier this year, the Welsh Infrastructure Alliance (WIA) produced a report on this topic for the National Infrastructure Commission for Wales. The report was designed to stimulate dialogue between the Commission and stakeholders with an interest in the infrastructure sector. This event builds on and updates on that report.
The WIA draws together like-minded organisations representing over 600 member companies and over 10,000 individual members from across the infrastructure sector. The WIA is formed from ICE, CIWM, ACE, ACE, CEW, CIWEM, CIHT and IStructE. The Alliance sees itself as a source of advice (to the National Infrastructure Commission for Wales) and potential solutions to enable the delivery of “world class” infrastructure in Wales to drive our future wellbeing as a nation.
