Productivity & Operational Efficiency through Digital Technologies - Business Bytes


A 2 hour Business Byte to discuss driving efficiency through digital innovation and investment. This is a live online conference. We will contact you with joining instructions at least 24 hours before your course starts.


Date & time

Wednesday, 20 July 2022, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

What is the Conference about?

Successful investment in digital technologies can be difficult for any business, but especially so for those in the construction industry. On the one hand, construction has for many years trailed behind other sectors in the scope and extent of its adoption of new technologies, which means there are many areas in which advantage can be gained. On the other hand, there are currently so many new technologies available - for both on-site and off-site use - that it can be difficult for the business to develop a digital strategy.

What will we cover?

In this conference we will look at some of the factors you should consider when developing your firm's digital strategy. We will also hear from industry experts who have either created new technologies or who have implemented new digital systems in their businesses. Join us to hear from Carolina Toczycka (Costain), Chris Grant (Digital Construction Skills), Chris Matthew (Flannery Plant) and Richard Higginbotham (OPTSM).

What are some of the factors to consider when planning a digital strategy? How can you be sure you'll achieve a return on your investment? What are some of the potential pitfalls? What are some of the new innovations available now and 'coming soon'?

Our panel of industry experts will talk about their own roles and experiences and will then come together in a round-table discussion.

What will I achieve?

  1. Understand the concept of supply chain resilience
