    Meet Building's digital champions — the ones who are driving a technological revolution

    Meet Building's digital champions — the ones who are driving a technological revolution

    Digital transformation is the big challenge facing the construction industry – for too long it has been held back by traditional ways of operating and yet now it seems the circumstances have never been better for the mass take-up of new technologies. So, who are the people driving this revolutionary change?
    "There’s a misconception that BIM and digital are a nice to have or a surplus cost."
    "Most innovation is driven by economics … it’s about which technologies are accessible at an economic price point that makes them attractive to be implementable in the construction sector."
    "I have seen a robot that climbs and constructed lift shafts autonomously. It’s terrifying and brilliant at the same time."

Interesting podcast.

Great podcast about the effect of politics of planning, building and regulations, it has huge impact on our Society, Economy and Culture.

Cheesenham-1 ,

Not terrible, but not great

Pretty limp conversations without much proper research or insight.
Also, audio quality is ok but a bit too much echo.

Athomas86 ,
