Compared to other industries, Civil Engineering has been slow to adopt digital tools and technologies and realise its potential for increased productivity. Adoption is often hampered by issues that are unique to the construction industry.  In order to address these challenges, Atkins has developed DynamicObjectsTM – a platform as a service solution for the development and hosting of automated engineering design tools.

Presenters Charlie Rogan and Peter McCullough of Atkins will discuss the development and evolution of this product and show the advantages of such digital tools over a ‘traditional’ design approach. They will present case studies where DynamicObjectsTM has been used on live projects and demonstrate the benefits to various aspects of Civil Engineering design and different parts of the project team.

Finally, the speakers will present some of the latest developments in cloud computing and discuss the potential these unlock for automated design tools in the future.

This online event is hosted by the ICE NI Graduate & Student Committee.
