Innovation Exchange- Leveraging the Knowledge Base

Innovation Exchange The built environment and construction industry face constant external and internal challenges that require a systemic approach to innovation to turn these challenges into opportunity. Innovation is vital to driving continuous improvement and to achieve our net zero ambitions, although it often suffers from hype with a lot of noise and a lack of implementation.   Join us for the next Innovation Exchange meeting on Wednesday 3rd July, focussing on ‘Leveraging the Knowledge Base’… How does the construction sector collaborate with the universities and RTOs? Do we fully understand the skills and knowledge available to help industry solve our current and future challenges? How we can leverage those relationships to maximise R&D opportunities and create industry wide innovation? Is the sharing of knowledge created good enough and clear enough? In this session we will be hearing from a panel of stakeholders from academia, RTOs and from the AgriTech sector to consider what works, how to make it work better and how we improve the value of the relationship between industry and the research community. Group Chair, Ben Pritchard, will be chairing a panel including: Dr Jo Morgan, Design Manager, SPECIFIC, University of Swansea Robert Hill, Director of Innovation, Commercialisation and Grant Support, Rothamsted Research Tom Bassett, Research Lead, BRE Nick Podevyn, Innovation & Improvement Manager, Sir Robert McAlpine Ltd   This event provides Constructing Excellence National members with CPD in partnership with BRE Academy.

Constructing Excellence Digital by Default- Kier’s Digital Twin Pathfinder Project

Join the Constructing Excellence Digital Group on Thursday 18th July for an engaging and insightful session on Kier’s Digital Twin Pathfinder Project. We will be joined by James Franklin, Digital Construction Lead for Kier Strategic Projects, Matthew Scard, Digital Lead for the MoJ, and Lucas Cusack, Asset management Lead for Glider. Kier is working with their client the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), Glider and Future Decisions on a Digital Twin Energy Performance focused Pathfinder project for a single house block at their new build prison, HMP Five Wells. The Digital Twin is a virtual, 3D mirror image that provides complete knowledge of the building to a level that has never before been possible. This will allow operators to use real-time sensor data to monitor and assess performance of the houseblock and components throughout its lifecycle. The technology will significantly improve performance and efficiencies, allowing MoJ to run the prison to be run more cost-effectively and sustainably. Read more about the project here.
