      Mark Shamoun, Principal Designer, Arcadis

      Bringing BIM to life. The session will present a case study on Australia’s first fully BIM designed infrastructure project. The Woolgoolga to Ballina Pacific Highway Upgrade project in NSW pioneered the use of Bentley OpenRoads civil design modeling software as part of a multi-platform to drive the use of BIM technology across the design and delivery process. The session will highlight the project delivery lessons from the project which, being transitional in the roll out of BIM technology, still required traditional project management deliverables to be presented to the client.

      Steffen Endler, Head of Strategy & Business Excellence, Siemens

      Digital technology is changing the way we live, work, and travel in and around cities. As the world becomes increasingly urbanized, with some 70 percent of the population expected to live in cities by 2050, governments are looking to use new technology to help existing and new infrastructure work harder and deliver better solutions for the public and communities. So, what does the digitally enhanced infrastructure look like? What will future smart cities need to develop?

      This session will draw on the work of the Siemens Future City project in Singapore to explore the answers to these questions. Delegates will understand more clearly what impact digital technology and new thinking might have on project delivery firms with specific reference to the use and development of:
      - Autonomous vehicles
      - Robotics
      - Design for manufacture
      - BIM Level 4
      - Augmented reality
      1:15 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.Interview: The Global Perspective on New Models for Construction Delivery
      Ray O’Connor, Senior Managing Executive Officer, General Manager of Positioning Company, Topcon

      As head of the Positioning business within the Topcon group, Ray O’Connor's challenge is to deliver a simple business mission to automate the two largest industries in the world – construction and agriculture. Using its GNSS, machine control, and precision agriculture systems, combined with Topcon Enterprise Solutions, its cloud-enabled data and site management software systems – the firm is already making progress globally toward making the ambition a reality.

      This session will draw on Ray’s experience and the challenges he has overcome while driving these traditional industries toward a new world of digital technology and information management. It will explore his vision for the future of the construction and highlight the ways that he sees new tools and technologies radically influencing and improving project delivery in the future; identify the success stories; and explore the potential and on-going blockers to future change. Interview by Antony Oliver.

      Case Studies:
      The owner's perspective: Sustaining infrastructure using modern methods of design, construction, operation, and maintenance

      Learn from public and private infrastructure asset development and operation authorities who will share their thoughts on the current project portfolio and challenges and explain how they see the use of technology and modern methods of construction impacting future construction, operation, and maintenance activities. They will also challenge the delivery supply chain with their vision for transformed infrastructure project delivery and focus on customer service and whole-life value. What does the supply chain need to do to keep its competitive advantage?

      The Changing Owner's Perspective
      Rob Ritchie, Former Systems Director, Major Projects at Rio Tinto

      Owner-operators have continued to increase in maturity. The nature of the modern operation is changing. This is driving owners to become far more mature in the expectations they have for EPC/Ms when delivering projects. This case study explores some of the trends owners are moving toward and what that means in the context of a successful project. These trends will ultimately drive the selection of contracting models, play a much stronger role in partner selection, and vary how engineering design, construction, and handover is undertaken.

      - Schedule Ready Assets – predictive capabilities in asset management fundamentally changes the way the operation works; what this means for design, construct, and handover.
      - BIM in an Industrial Context –Beyond the build, 6D, 7D use cases of the BIM.
      - The Digital Twin - Holistic data commissioning and its critical role in operational start-up performance.
      - The emerging role of the 3D model in the operational context.

      Advancing project delivery workflow - the Malaysian Government Initiative towards digitalization of infrastructure design, construction and operation
      Ahmad Farrin Mokhtar, General Manager, CIDB Construction Technology Division

      The Malaysian Government is driving a new initiative to advance the use of digitalization and digital capabilities across its public sector infrastructure project delivery workflows. This presentation and case study will outline the steps that have been taken to date, highlight the steps that have been taken to encourage the supply chain to embrace data-led engineering, and explain how this initiative is starting to improve outcomes and productivity across the sector.
