CR Kennedy Survey Solutions are proud to support The South Australian Major Projects Conference, taking place on the 30th & 31st July 2019 at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
Solution specialitsts Matt Scholz and John Sheppard are on hand to discuss digital construction strategies and the latest in geospatial equipment and discuss their experience on some of the States largest infrastructure projects.
Attracting well over 150 attendees, this conference is a must attend for industry professionals seeking the most up-to-date information on the State’s infrastructure projects, policy issues, research findings and best practices.
Featuring over 20 high profile speakers from the government and private sectors, the presentations will focus on what projects are in the pipeline for sectors across defence, transport, health, education, housing, ports, water and energy.
Most construction firms are well aware of the benefits of using building information modeling, or BIM, to identify problems before they happen and facilitate more complete building systems integration.
"The building and construction industry is a vital component to the Australian economy. It accounts for 8% of total GDP, includes over 350,000 businesses, and employs over one million people. More broadly it contributes to the health, wellbeing, and standard of living of every Australian.
As Australia’s population grows towards the predicted 39 million by 2055, demand for more and better infrastructure is escalating, while the need to avoid lock-in of high-emissions assets is becoming more and more critical. All this occurs against a backdrop of fiscal deficits across the forward estimates, as well as ongoing economic and environmental uncertainty with disruptive consequences for the carbon economy and traditional methods of industrial production.
Today’s construction environment is characterised by shorter building cycles, reduced budgets and growing expectations for accurate data on demand. Although this situation presents numerous challenges for the industry, it also creates tremendous opportunities for firms that wish to differentiate themselves in an increasingly competitive market. We need to be smarter and more innovative about how we deliver construction projects; we need to be smarter and more innovative about how we use and operate assets during their life."
