East Africa is witnessing a construction boom supported by robust Government aides and increased foreign investments.
With digital construction tools and systems such as BIM being adopted at a robust speed in the global construction market, developers in the East African region are now wanting to explore the use of BIM and have more turnkey providers to offer project visibility at lower costs with better risk management systems.
Vaughan Harris, Executive Director of the BIM Institute, South Africa says that “sustainable construction via BIM and ICT will only succeed if we work together towards a joint vision through a common plan. Doing so will allow an infrastructure and the community to enjoy the many benefits and ROI, while also including improved infrastructure and housing, safer and more predictable project delivery, a more sustainable and resilient built environment, and higher-quality service delivery for end users.”
The 2-day, East Africa: Digital Construction 2018 in Nairobi will explore BIM and ICT to discuss and debate the legacy systems that need to be replaced and implement advanced technologies & processes to develop skilled professionals for sustainable project life-cycles.
