Overview

The visualization of an engineering problem, the ability to rapidly communicate execution intent and requirements in one direction and the emerging state of construction in the other, along with management of resources are all imperatives being addressed in temporary works and military engineering through digital collaboration.

This Joint meeting between the Institution of Royal Engineers, Institution of Civil Engineers and the Temporary Works Forum will describe the digital technologies supporting these activities; some of the important enabling technologies, the emerging forms of these technologies and discuss the formation requirements for engineer development to ensure they are able to deploy and manage the technologies.

Following the presentations and discussions there will be a curry buffet in the Officers’ Mess to enable networking opportunities. Dress code is smart work attire.

Booking for in person attendance will close on 04 October 23.

All non-MOD personnel attending in person will be required to provide their vehicle details and bring a form of identification. These will be asked for on confirmation of attendance.

Major Ben Monaghan

Major Monaghan joined in 1994 as a plant operator mechanic and went on to qualify as a military plant foreman gaining a HND in civil engineering in 2006. In 2010 he project managed the ground works to support the temporary bridge across the River Derwent in Cumbria to relive issues created from the flooding.

In 2022 he worked for the Home Office on Op ISOTROPE in two separate projects; firstly developing the RIBA 2 design for a 500 man facility; secondly converting RAF Linton-on-Ouse into a refugee processing centre. The first offered the opportunity for a BIM approach which was attempted. Lessons from that went forward to commence the Royal Engineers’ first 3D modelling and BIM-derived project on Ex SAILFISH in Belize with the first BIM Execution Plan being signed off by DIO Digital Exploitation Team.

His unhealthy interest in delivering positive change through innovative and digital mechanisms continues into his current role as SO2 Hard FM for the Central Region, covering circa 250 sites with an annual projects budget of around £80M.
