3D printing in concrete, the arrival of new construction materials, and bold new architectural and design concepts. The arrival of artificial intelligence, digital twin, and other new technologies for imagining the design, construction, and assembly of buildings and facilities. The emerge of virtual building fabrication, assembly line fabrication with rapid assembly on site, and other new methodologies. The arrival of a new generation of engineers weaned on SimCity and planted firmly in the virtual world, provided for the dramatic acceleration and adoption of new construction ideas. And let’s not forget intelligent building infrastructure and the acceleration of the digitization of the home and industrial facility!
Wherever you turn, the construction industry is now one defined by speed, new methodologies, new materials, new ideas, and bold thinking – and as Jim Carroll has shared with his many global clients in the sector – ‘the future belongs to those who are fast.’
In this keynote, Futurist Jim Carroll provides attendees with an up-to-the-moment overview of the key trends redefining the construction sector, disrupting ideas, and allowing for faster innovation, based upon the extensive, customized research for which he is globally known.
With his focus on turning any threat into an opportunity, he will outline a clear path forward for bold, transformative thinking, and innovation strategies that are based on careful research of dozens of successful construction industry companies who have innovated successfully in this new, fast-paced world.
