Digital technology is transforming the way we understand and manage infrastructure assets.
Big data is at our fingertips – but the challenge for civil engineers, asset owners and operators is to turn this into useful data, better inform decision making and establish a “whole life-cycle” approach.
ICE’s Transport Asset Management conference will will address these challenges and showcase how digital can boost infrastructure asset performance while also reducing costs.
Delegates will hear real-life examples from leading project teams across road, rail, ports and airports, and the latest lessons learnt for managing both old and new infrastructure.
Confirmed speakers include representatives from the Department for Transport, Network Rail, HS2, Highways England, Dublin & Cork Airport, Arup, Atkins and the UK Road Liaison Group, and many more. For more details view the programme.
