WELCOME TO THE CONFERENCE
THE FUTURE OF DIGITAL CONSTRUCTION
Digitalization is gaining momentum in the construction industry. We’ll try to predict the future: What does the digital construction in 5 – 10 – 20 years look like? What technologies are emerging and what does this mean for the construction industry? How do we seize the opportunities that technology gives us?
Alex Lubbock, Managing Director UK, BIM Object
HOW TO BRING BIM TO THE NEXT LEVEL
There is still considerable untapped potential in the use of BIM. Most consultants today use BIM, but contractors and suppliers do often not use BIM on smaller projects during the actual construction phase. At the same time, there are several benefits to be gained by using BIM in the subsequent operation and maintenance of the building. How can we take advantage of all the benefits of using BIM in the construction project? What are the challenges, where do we lag behind, and what can we do about it? What does it take to achieve the fully digitized construction process – and get higher quality projects while saving both time and money?

STAVANGER UNIVERSITETSSYGEHUS – THE WORLD’S BEST DIGITAL CONSTRUCTION PROJECT
Stavanger University Hospital is to be expanded by 100,000 m2 and contain 650 patient rooms. The team behind the big project includes two architectural firms, two engineers, MEP teams and four specialists – spread throughout Norway. Therefore, effective communication and good cooperation are important. The project is built as a BIM project with significant innovations in industrialized construction process and digital interaction. As result, the project in 2018 won the US IT giant Autodesk’s award for the world’s best digital construction project. What solutions have been used? What value has it given to the construction project?

THE BENEFITS OF BIM – BEST PRACTICE EXAMPLES BY MT HØJGAARD
With BIM, we can not only work with the construction virtually, but also improve the social responsibility of the building and a host of other benefits. Based on their practice and ongoing research, the Danish construction company MT Højgaard will provide examples of challenges and opportunities using BIM and explain the value it adds to the project. Concrete experiences where BIM has been valuable in the construction process and subsequently for the completed construction will be passed on. How can BIM contribute to optimize efficiency of the project? And how can BIM improve the sustainability of the project – like indoor climate, life-cycle cost, life-cycle assessment and other benefits?
Leonora Charlotte Malabi Eberhardt, Industrial Ph.D. student, Alberto Vilar, Sustainability consultant and Peter Bo Olsen, Technical Director, VDC Planning & Support, MT Højgaard.
THE ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL BENEFITS OF BIM AND HOW TO MEASURE THEM
What are the economic and financial benefits from doing construction digitally? PwC was commissioned to investigate this by the UK government. PwC developed a method for measuring the benefits of using BIM, and tested it on UK public sector infrastructure projects. The study showed that savings were generated across all phases of the project lifecycle, with the largest benefits during the operation phase. When aggregated to the national level, using BIM could generate benefits to the economy of at least 430 million pounds per year. What are the benefits of using BIM? And how can companies and governments use the measurement methods to quantify these? You will get a presentation of the findings, including benefits measured and challenges experienced in conducting the study.

HOW DOES CONTRACTORS WORK WITH VDC?
One of the biggest contracting companies in Denmark, Per Aarsleff, gives you insight into how they work with VDC. What are Per Aarsleff’s VDC strategy? How do they successfully implement VDC? And how does it create value on their projects? Challenges and opportunities, successes and gains from using VDC from a contractor’s point of view.
Àstridur Elin Àsgeirsdottir, VDC Development Manager, Per Aarsleff
PROJECT PRESENTATION OF CARLSBERG CITY DISTRICT
In one of Copenhagen’s new urban areas, Carlsberg City District, ZÜBLIN is building several new projects including two high-rise buildings. During the planning and construction process, the team uses BIM 5D® to digitally involve all collaborators earlier and more efficiently. How are BIM 5D® optimizing the projects in Carlsberg City District? And when and how are the tools brought into play? Get perspectives on how ZÜBLIN works with BIM and digital tools, when ZÜBLIN’s own specialists share their experiences with BIM 5D®.
Arbaz Hamayun, Civil Engineer and Martin Vinding, Building Constructor, ZÜBLIN
IS BIM THE PATH TO MORE SUSTAINABLE BUILDINGS?
Construction accounts for almost 40 % of the global CO2 emissions annually. There is an urgent need to take action now, and the sooner the better. What role does BIM play in sustainable construction and architecture – both the economic efficiency, environmental performance and social responsibility considered? How can BIM support sustainability in the three key phases: the design, construction and operation phases?
