Construction and Design industry goes hand-in-hand in various ways. A booming construction sector gives a great boost to the design industry. According to the reports, GCC countries will be awarded projects worth over $138.5bn in 2019. Thanks to the mega infrastructure and commercial projects, which are currently either under construction or in the pipeline across the region's major economies. This amazing expansion in the construction sector directly results in the demand for design and architectural services. Construction Innovation & Design Forum 2019 taps the pulse of these two dynamic industries in the region raising crucial questions and inviting the leading experts to share their valuable opinions. The Forum will present an opportunity for the attendees to get acquainted and explore some exciting industry topics such as fit-out technology, preparing for digital future, real estate and property investment, and can a good design is a solution to all the problems?
Human intelligence and modern technology are doing wonders in the field of fit-out. Be it the BIM, PIM Software, 3D visualisation apps or Point Clouds, technology is an essential part of any fit-out project. These technologies are a boon and help in simplifying the tasks. Leading industry experts discuss what’s in and what’s out when it comes to technology and innovation.
Digital technologies are disrupting the industry, providing new opportunities to
address the challenges of poor profitability/productivity, project performance, skilled
labor shortages, and sustainability concerns.
Digitisation will change most everything, including the competitors and the barriers to entry. The end result: a more productive and profitable industry that builds more sustainable assets. Construction companies must take steps now to join the digital future and stay ahead of the competition—or risk being left behind.
Are we putting too much pressure on designers and architects to change the world we live in? Be it sustainable buildings, biophilia, clean air, open spaces, smart cities, and climate crises as well. Let’s find out from the experts on what is possible and what’s not to get a reality check.
Property experts will constantly highlight new markets they deem to be investment hotspots and you may be able to find the right deals in countries where prices have fallen dramatically, but it’s often wiser to buy in more established markets. Our panel of experts will discuss the importance of investing in the right market and the potential growth that investors will gain.
