Rob charlton :
Shared ideas. Made friends and contacts and enjoyed learning.
The industry is changing and there is a new future on the horizon.
What : we have cracked it, we have the voice, there is no going back.
When : we are then, it’s now. Look after the trailing edge and the supple chain. Getting involved in education. Denial has gone. Resistance is gone. Exploration is ongoing and commitment is there.
Why : delivering better value and improving the construction industry. Now it’s serious. We have to go beyond the talk. Cut back on waste. Landfill and environmental impact.
How : 2025 vision. (Egan report with a different cover on) define, design, assemble and operate. Fundamental change to the industry. Too much compartmentalisation of outlooks and windows into other peoples work. Constantly review and validate.
BIM is the term for the construction revolution.
