5: AEC Design Tech Panel // Perry, Schleusner, Watts

Panel discussion: AEC design tech
The limitations of current AEC tools and what the industry needs from next gen AEC products. With Greg Schleusner (HOK), Aaron Perry (AHMM) and Andy Watts (Grimshaw).

6: How can this Industry Sustain its Commitment to Sustainability? // Fischer, Leutiger, Surgeoner

Panel discussion: How can this Industry Sustain its Commitment to Sustainability?
Nearly every publicly listed company has an ESG strategy to maximize shareholder value, yet building production is arguably failing to make significant improvements in both carbon and waste reduction. Who pays, who cares and who owns the task of step change improvement, and how can technology impact progress? With Mirren Fischer (MDRxTech), Sarah Surgeoner (Creative Building Performance), and Philipp Leutiger (Holcim)

7: How much are we learning from Prefabrication Failures? // Bell, Dunn, Green, Harpham

Panel discussion: How much are we learning from Prefabrication Failures?
Prefabrication companies have regularly failed during the last few years, both in Europe and the US. With this background, this panel will discuss, dispute and challenge why this has been happening, even though the overall enthusiasm for DFMA, offsite assembly, and improved supply chain strategies still remains high. With Charlie Dunn (DPR), Bruce Bell (Facit Homes), Oliver Green (Kope), Richard Harpham (ex Revit, Autodesk, and Katerra)

Stream #2

1: Pamela Nunez Wallgren & Jesper Wallgren // Finch

BIM 2.0 presentation – Finch
Finch utilises AI, graph technology, and advanced algorithms to optimise and challenge your design. With Pamela Nunez Wallgren and Jesper Wallgren

2: Adi Shavit // SWAPP

BIM 2.0 presentation – SWAPP
In this talk, we will explore the transformative impact of artificial intelligence on the AEC industry, focusing specifically on the diverse AI methodologies utilized by SWAPP. We will get a sneak peek at how SWAPP leverages techniques like machine learning and advanced algorithms to automate the Design Development and Construction Document phases of architectural planning. This automation drastically reduces manual labor and accelerates project timelines. By enabling firms to handle more projects effectively and consistently, these AI-driven strategies are not just streamlining processes – they’re reshaping the industry. Join us to understand how this AI-driven revolution is setting the stage for the future of the AEC industry. With Adi Shavit.
