Joint ICE and Topcon Lecture: Infrastructure delivery in a technology enabled future

Registration for this event is now closed. The event is available to watch online live.

The future of infrastructure is now.

Project delivery has been changing rapidly over the last few years and the rhythm is only bound to increase, as new technologies are being introduced and visionary organisations begin to harness the benefits of going digital.

Augmented reality, machine control and BIM will continue to transform the infrastructure landscape by increasing efficiencies, reducing errors and costs, and unlocking a wide range of possibilities for new designs.

The annual Joint ICE and Topcon Lecture on Innovation will provide delegates the opportunity to hear the experiences of early adopters and join the conversation on how the industry can reach the full potential of digital technology.
