Welcome & Agenda, Buildoffsite

Craig Sewell, CoBuilder & Andrew Gamblen, Willmott Dixon

Following the Government Mandate of BIM Level 2 in 2016 there has been an explosion in the Construction Sector of technology and software to help modernise and make the sector more efficient. This presentation looked at the background of Digital Construction, examples of where technology has proved successful on and off-site, and how coBuilder can help provide the right information at the end of the project.

Graeme Jones, C-Probe and Royston Young, DASYS

C-Probe has, for over 20 years, monitored the performance of structures using its embedded sensors and open network electronic management systems interrogated and remotely controlled through internet access. These have developed to provide online service life tracking with add-on IoT options that can be incorporated into precast concrete elements for future resilience management. Teaming-up with Design Automation Systems the presentation discussed how past success is emerging to integrate digital design solutions into the BIM environment to assess, control and prevent infrastructure degradation to assure future sustainability.

Richard Kelly, Building Smart

This presentation looked at how digital transformation is enabling offsite by examining processes and examples from case study.

Craig Sewell, coBuilder and Gillian Smith, CADENAS

Presentation looked at how CADENAS, the market leaders in object digitalisation for the mechanical/engineering sector, have adopted the combined CADENAS/coBuilder solution for Wieneberger and TATA steel and how utilising complex product configurators, could provide a perfect solution for many Buildoffsite members.
