Day One: Planning and Design

Intelligence and Automation


4.6.2021 9:00AM - 12:15PM


Zoom Digital Meeting

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.

Then, stay with us for Day Two of the Buildings Conference when we explore innovation in building products, materials, and systems as well as the operations and maintenance of buildings in smart sustainability.

And in Day Three of the buildings Conference, we look at how emerging technology in Modularization and Pre-Fabrication are impacting the development, design, construction, and operations of our buildings.

Day One: Emerging Technology in Planning and Design

The Day One Sessions look at topic areas including automation and artificial intelligence in design, development, and preconstruction processes. For architects, engineers, real estate developers, owners and contractors alike, artificial intelligence, parametrics, digital modeling, scanning and reality capture technology, visualization tools, tools for better purchasing, material specifications, estimating, scheduling, and more are transforming both the efficiency and also the quality of building planning efforts. Sessions on Day One will look at case studies of how industry players are leveraging the technology that is driving these changes. Agenda to be announced soon.
