Topic: Digitalization gap vs productivity gap in the construction industry
In the last few months, lots of startups and tech-based solutions have appeared in the Contech ecosystem aiming to solve industry pain points. Digitalization flow has brought different benefits, such as time savings. However, productivity still remains as a huge pain point, since there have not been radical changes. How has digitalization not disrupted the industry yet?

CEMEX Ventures Workshop: Digitalization gap vs Productivity gap: bringing tangible benefits to construction
In the last few months, lots of startups and tech-based solutions have appeared in the Contech ecosystem aiming to solve industry pain points. Digitalization flow has brought different benefits, such as time savings. However, productivity still remains as a huge pain point, since there have not been radical changes. Thus, why is not digitalization enough to disrupt the industry yet?

Day 2 Schedule
Hear from our Co-founder Matt Gray and feast your eyes upon the Vlog from the 2018 BuiltWorlds European Road Trip
Keynote: The Future of ConTech Might Be Unreasonably Shakey
Julien Bourcerie, Head of Open-innovation, Bouygues Construction
Construction Tech is a world of opportunities and maybe the worst playground for startups. How do ConTech startups reaching a market almost impenetrable? How do contractors behave in front of that? The future of startup/contractor relationship will offer new challenges, then face it before it happens.
Panel: Venture Funds and the Built World
Gonzalo Galindo, Head of CEMEX Ventures, CEMEX Ventures | Rani Saad, Managing Partner, Foundamental | Guillaume Bazouin, Head of Startups and Open Innovation, VINCI
Just ten years ago, there were two measly construction technology investments totaling $4.5 million. In 2018, we have breached the one billion invested dollars milestone. This panel will probe the investment strategies of AEC/RE investment funds and examine how new investments are changing our industry.
Break and Breakfast
Keynote: Building Tech
David Vauthrin, Co-Founder & CEO, FINALCAD
Panel: Innovations in Building Technology
Jamie Roche, CEO, Helix | Shrikant Sharma, Head of Smart Space, Buro Happold Engineering | Julien Daclin, Digital & Sustainability Director, JLL
The features of Buildings 2.0 are incredible and promising, improving the environment, the longevity of the building, and the lifestyle of the end user. Today, buildings are collecting all sorts of data, which owners and tenants can leverage to improve the overall performance of the building over its entire lifecycle. On this panel, we will examine how this data is collected and can be utilized effectively.
Panel: Future of Design
Jesus Perucho Alcalde, Digital Delivery Information Manager, BrydenWood | Daniel Gmeiner, Head of BIM Competence Center, Hilti Group
As projects become larger and more complex, architecture and engineering firms need to adapt to meet increased demands. The panel will examine how some of the most prominent firms in the world develop and retain a talented workforce, approach business development, and ensure they deliver the best services to their clients.
Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
Vidur Gupta, Founder & CEO, Beekin | Dev Amratia, Co-Founder & CEO, nPlan | Håvard Haukeland, Founder & CEO, Spacemaker AI | Tim Ensor, AI Commercial Director, Cambridge Consultants
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning have historically been difficult to define. But their core, AI is broadly the concept of machines performing tasks in a “smart” way, while machine learning is a subsection of AI in which humans allow machines access to data in order for them to “learn” for themselves within a set of parameters. Panelists will explore the application of AI in construction.
Fireside Chat: Erin Bradner, Autodesk
Erin Bradner, Director of Robotics, Autodesk
Automation and robotics are no longer concepts of the future. They're here now. We'll sit down with Erin Bradner, Autodesk's Director of Robotics to talk about how these technologies affect the industry, and what they mean for prefabrication.
Keynote: Aref Boualwan
Aref Boualwan, Manager MIS & Business Process Re-Engineering, CCC
Networking Reception & Dinner
Day 3 Schedule
Matt Gray, BuiltWorlds
Panel: Future of Construction and Development
Damian Farr, Europe Managing Director, DPR Construction | Julia Arlt, Global Digital Real Estate leader, PWC | Pedro Lopes, I&K Coordinator, Grupo Casais
The tools we use to plan, execute, and collaborate on our projects are quickly evolving. From machine learning in scheduling, to wearables for safety monitoring, to project management systems, our projects are moving faster and costing less money to complete. On this panel, we will dive into the systems, techniques, and technologies that can help you more effectively plan, monitor, and oversee projects.
The Connected Jobsite
Patric Hellermann, Chief Venture Officer, HeidelbergCement | Thomas Goubau, Chief Commercial Officer and Co-Founder, LetsBuild (fka GenieBelt) | Meirav Oren, CEO & Co-Founder, Versatile Natures | Raphael Scheps, Co-Founder & CEO, Converge
As projects become more complex, it becomes increasingly important to integrate different software tools and address discrepancies quickly to reduce project delays and cost overruns. During this conversation, panelists explore how integrated workflows enable one to easily assign discrepancies to team members. We will also explore how accurate measurements help bridge the physical and digital in order to deliver an instant ROI through specific case studies.
Toward Truly Smarter Cities
Daniel Ringelstein, Director of Urban Design and Planning, SOM | Michael Evans, CEO, Cambridge Carbon Capture
In recent years, master planning has become less about arriving at a complete solution that structures a city through various infrastructure components and more focused on developing flexible frameworks that can meet changing demands. As new urban technologies mature, it becomes possible to deploy them on increasingly broad scales and with growing effectiveness. This new approach helps cities become intelligent in order to meet the challenges of managing waste, water, energy, mobility, and infrastructure. At the same time, new technologies create new routes for financing large scale urban development projects. During this panel, we will explore how these approaches are being implemented in unique and potentially revolutionary projects.
