I recently collaborated with Eoin Ó Murchú and Colin Mann of PwC’s Capital Projects team to produce the first in a series of podcasts, entitled Reimagining Capital Projects. This series aims to explore how technology and innovation is changing capital projects and the wider infrastructure industry.
In this episode we discussed the influence of construction technology disruption and how innovation can displace established market practices. How can the industry adapt to new business models? Are we adequately addressing the current industry gaps to meet future business challenges?
We touched on the Farmer review, BIM (of course), procurement practices, industry fragmentation, the UK government’s new models of construction procurement, and ‘servitisation’, among other subjects.
… and coming soon: the DCW2017 podcasts
This week, I have been at the Digital Construction Week event in London’s ExCEL centre, and some of these themes have been revisited, this time in a series of DCW podcasts that I hosted from a Podcast studio installed in the exhibition centre. I will publish a link to these podcasts shortly.
