THREE DAYS OF IN DEPTH TALKS (Click Each Image for the Complete Speaker Lists and Agendas))

Day One: Emerging Tech in Planning, Design, and Preconstruction

April 6, 2021

Artificial intelligence, reality capture, and digital modeling are just some of the areas that have seen profound advances in the face of fast emerging technologies and are changing how we plan and design buildings. On day One of our 2021 Buildings Conference, we will explore case studies and host discussions on some of the most promising solutions and how they are changing the way real estate developers, owners, architects, engineers, and contractors support development or redevelopment planning, the design, and value engineering and analysis in the pre-construction phase of project life cycles.

Day Two: Emerging Tech & Innovation in Sustainability

April 7, 2021

After looking at emerging technology and its impact on planning and design of building on Day One, on Day Two, we look at Smart Sustainability, how emerging technology is influencing Building Products, Material and Systems and how those changes and other aspects of emerging technology  are impacting the Operations and Maintenance of Buildings.

Day Three: Modularization and Prefabrication

April 8, 2021

Modularization and Prefabrication is impacting Buildings in many ways. Across different sectors including single family housing, multifamily housing, hotels, hospitals, and even office buildings, manufacturing plants, and data centers, modularization of components of buildings, sections of buildings, and even entire buildings is changing the way we build. We will look at case studies of software, business models, and approaches to modularization impacting different building types.

Why People Love BuiltWorlds Events:

“BuiltWorlds bridges the gap between technology and the built industry. And it’s working. We’re opening our eyes to opportunities we never saw before.”


“BuiltWorlds is raising the level of discourse about what’s happening in this industry. Construction has stagnated. We’ve had productivity loss where all other industries has had productivity gain. BuiltWorlds is filling that gap by getting people to think about technology in a different way.”


"The BuiltWorlds ecosystem has evolved into an incredible intersection of contractors, capital, software, and technology providers. I can't recommend this organization enough."


"I love BuiltWorlds. Your meetings have always delivered valuable content and gathered a great mix of leaders driving change in our vertical."

Paul Shahriari, Founder and CEO, ecomedes

“Impressive content delivered in digestible chunks. Well done.”

“Well done, BuiltWorlds. Rather than throw in the towel, you found a different and innovative platform for the Summit. The content was even more relevant in today’s disrupted economy, so I’m very grateful to have been able to participate–even if remotely.” -Jon Pahl, Nabholz Construction.

“BuiltWorlds is a phenomenal resource for those in the AEC industry, in particular their Summit, which brings together thought leadership and practical application of innovation that can impact the industry. Thank you for pivoting to the virtual format this year in response to COVID-19 to bring this valuable content to the masses. Well done event!”
