The Recap: Construction Innovation Forum 2019
The Middle East and North Africa region (MENA) is no exception when it comes to the challenges posed by urbanisation and architecture. On the other hand, these challenges also presented the country with substantial opportunities. Dubai has succeeded in transforming itself into a global city, and a regional business and tourism hub; this has happened predominantly in the last two decades.
With the government also undertaking numerous ‘smart’ initiatives, the benefits of digitisation are expected to percolate to every sector in the economy, especially infrastructure, utilities, transportation, aviation, and tourism.
The Construction Innovation Forum presented an opportunity for the attendees to get acquainted with the facts and knowledgeable discussion about smart cities, creating the optimum building design and how can we move towards building more sustainable and energy efficient buildings.
