#bsl2014 Opening address

David Philp:
Learning. Sharing. Connecting.
Early adopters to push ahead and new people to learn.
BIM task group – industry has made real progress on level 2 BIM.
It is really about the outcomes.
Digitising the construction industry.
Cultural change is the big one.
2014 is the tipping point. Construction industry is the last one to be analog.
Digital Britain.
Creating a capable workforce.
600+ people in the auditorium

Rob charlton :
Shared ideas. Made friends and contacts and enjoyed learning.
Construction 2.0
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.
Baby boomers are doing well.
Generation x are the most educated. Sat in the middle. A little bitter at the baby boomers.
Generation Y are the future and think completely differently. X must support Y. Decision makers are baby boomers.
IBM is baby boomer
Amazon and apple are X (Apple Borders baby boomer)
Facebook and google are Y
What are generation z going to be. The internet is their oxygen

What next : Generation Y are not accepting the norm. They want to see a change. The internet of things and big data. Operational data off of buildings. The amazon dash.

About Shaun Farrell

I have been involved in the construction sector since 1986 and over the years I have seen things change dramatically. Much of the change has been directly as a result of technology. This blog will be about the key combinations of People, Process and Technology. Any views expressed here are strictly my own.
