Bluebeam helps architecture, engineering and construction teams connect office and field with a reliable, easily accessible single source of truth.
There is a need for change across our industry. The use of technology is intrinsic to our daily lives and yet, when it comes to our working environments and processes, we encounter reluctance to embrace and adopt ‘data and digital’ technology in varying forms. This apprehension can be seen at all levels within an organisation, from senior leaders to those with their ‘boots on the ground’.
We want to invite you to our latest webinar to discuss the digital transformation journey. Together, we will draw on the results of our Enabling a Digital Transformation survey and discuss some of the conclusions and actions identified by our ICE members.
Together, we will consider how data and digital technology is an enabler, rather than an end in itself. We will delve deeper into the benefits of improving information management from an enterprise, organisation, and project-specific perspective. Additionally, we will consider the various challenges and the traditional ‘risk/technology-averse culture’ associated with construction and engineering. And finally, this is an opportunity to discuss training and the possibilities and benefits that this could bring to individuals, organisations, and the wider industry.

Emma is a civil engineer specialising in rivers and hydraulic engineering, working in the water sector for Mott MacDonald. She joined Mott MacDonald in 2019 after graduating from university and has worked on projects such as HS2, river restoration schemes, and flood alleviation schemes in England.
Emma is passionate about data and digital, specifically coding and automation. Emma has been involved in coding club activities since joining Mott MacDonald and learnt coding part-time. She enjoys developing coding solutions to improve the efficiency and accuracy of her day-to-day project work.
As one of the eight current ICE President's Future Leaders, Emma was invited to join the ICE Data and Digital CAB where she has found a new passion in promoting the use of digital solutions to a wider audience and upskilling civil engineers.
A five session course delivered by industry experts to develop in-depth knowledge of health, safety, and welbeing in civil engineering within the UK.
Join the ICE and ICSI for the seventh lecture in the 14th Brunel International Lecture Series, which will shine a spotlight on equitable, sustainable, and resilient infrastructure challenges in South Asia.
This is an opportunity for Technicians to gather online to discuss ways in which we can help ourselves, each other and the ICE to provide ongoing learning and experience in the wide world of civil engineering.
