Event description

Description

As part of CITB’s ‘Changing Constructions – Changing Skills’ programme, a research study was recently completed called ‘Unlocking Construction’s Digital Future: A skills plan for industry’.

From this and a subsequently published CITB White Paper, various actions were recommended, and the Digital Upskilling commissioned fund was initiated with three outcomes. This commission focuses specifically on the first outcome; senior leaders will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to implement digital technologies, processes and competences in their business, including changes to HR activities.

We are seeking applications that test and refine digital competencies proposed by the research, by piloting approaches to deliver skills and knowledge that senior leaders need to implement digitization. This workshop is designed to open discussion with interested parties, increase the opportunity of collaboration with networking and, lead to quality applications.

We want people or organisations who:

  • Have best practice examples of individuals and companies using skills to implement and use digital technologies to solve problems and improve productivity either in, or that can be applied to, construction

  • Have adopted digital practices and ways of working either as early adopters in construction, or in other more digitally mature sectors. Examples might include:

  • Innovative use of social media

  • Cloud computing or collaborative online working

  • Building information modelling

  • Virtual or augmented reality, data visualisation

  • Innovative use of mobile and tablet apps to share information

  • Are positioned to carry out cross-sector or sector-wide engagement to identify digitally mature organisations and connect them with those who have yet to adopt digital Use digital information extensively in their roles already, and are ready to share knowledge (such as architects, surveyors, engineers, BIM managers)

  • That specialise in digital product development, web-based services who understand how to embed digital innovation in a business

  • Are in third sector organisations with ‘digital’ as a priority, such as Higher Education, LEPs, Innovate UK, those involved in / delivering the Sector Deal

  • Construction employers ready to adopt digital, who might not wish to lead a project but are willing to partner as use-cases to piloted approaches

We look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas on the day!
