Seminar on “The Next Revolution in the Construction Industry”

Overview

While the Building Information Modeling (BIM) approach has been an important enabler for the digital transformation in the construction sector, the concept of Construction 2.0 gradually begins to take place. It is still difficult today to give a precise definition, even if the experts are unanimous on the fact that it will be a major revolution for the industry. Join us at the seminar where three distinguished speakers will share their expert views on the next revolution in the construction industry.
