There is a need for change across our industry. The use of technology is intrinsic to our daily lives and yet, when it comes to our working environments and processes, we encounter reluctance to embrace and adopt ‘data and digital’ technology in varying forms. This apprehension can be seen at all levels within an organisation, from senior leaders to those with their ‘boots on the ground’.

We want to invite you to our latest webinar to discuss the digital transformation journey. Together, we will draw on the results of our Enabling a Digital Transformation survey and discuss some of the conclusions and actions identified by our ICE members.

Together, we will consider how data and digital technology is an enabler, rather than an end in itself. We will delve deeper into the benefits of improving information management from an enterprise, organisation, and project-specific perspective. Additionally, we will consider the various challenges and the traditional ‘risk/technology-averse culture’ associated with construction and engineering. And finally, this is an opportunity to discuss training and the possibilities and benefits that this could bring to individuals, organisations, and the wider industry.




Bluebeam helps architecture, engineering and construction teams connect office and field with a reliable, easily accessible single source of truth.
