Virtualising Assets through mobile 3D Digitisation.

As market leaders in 3D capture technology, we will demonstrate how assets can be captured quickly, accurately and remotely using 3D scanning technologies with minimal disruption to the standard working environment.

Through innovative design, easy use and automated software our systems are delivering a complete digital picture for asset management and design to many customers who operate, maintain and manage assets to reduce costs.  

By being able to virtually visit a facility we can digitally design to remove construction clashes, identify defects, deliver safety inductions offsite and schedule and plan repair works to maximise efficiencies and use the digital truth to evaluate and visualise your projects and communicate them globally.

Improved safety, faster turnarounds, and easier access to accurate 3D facility documentation allows for better decisions and cost reduction. All of this is made possible with the power of Leica Geosystems 3D scanning solutions

Fixing our broken town centres – how to create diverse and smart places

Lambert Smith Hampton is a leading UK commercial property, planning, development and regeneration consultancy that is at the forefront of advising on the transformation of town and city centres across the UK.  From initial visioning and masterplanning, through to regeneration and asset management we know how to create successful, viable and sustainable centres and places.  But our traditional towns and high streets are facing uncertain futures. Based on recent research LSH have carried out with Revo entitled ‘Fixing our Broken Town Centres’, Dr Steven Norris (LSH’s national head of Planning, Development and Regeneration) will present some thoughts on what can be done to reverse the decline of the UK’s Town Centres, and how local planning authorities will have an increasingly critical role to play in first saving and then managing our towns and high streets.  Mark Walters (LSH’s Telecoms Director) will provide further insight on how telecoms infrastructure can help create stronger, smarter towns and cities that will enable more people to “live locally, but work globally” due to faster digital connectivity.  The economic, physical and digital transformation of our towns and cities is probably one of the greatest challenges of the 21st Century, and will go some way to creating more sustainable, carbon-neutral places that can be enjoyed by future generations

A digital tech savvy construction sector is better for the planet

We all want a construction and asset management industry in Scotland that is fit for purpose and fit for the future.  Climate change and the carbon crisis are real challenges we face, and adopting digital technologies and processes can play a large part in reducing the problem.  Zero Waste Scotland have recently launched a support service with Bruach Design and Consultancy to help SMEs better understand how they can use digital technology to reduce their carbon impact, reduce material use or construction waste.  This session will give examples of the benefits that can be realised, and will explain how the support service operates and how you, or members of your supply chain, can apply to take advantage of this bespoke, tailored support.

Key messages will include understanding your asset data requirements at outset, keeping it simple and not to be afraid of COBie!

1:50 PM - 2:05 PM
Best practice digital estate approaches – Digital Retailer Case Study

Accessing accurate, up-to-date information has never been so important in property and estates management, yet staff frequently struggle to find what they need to make well-informed decisions – or just to do their job. Our client, a major name operating in a fast-paced retail environment, was facing exactly these kinds of information challenges, all too familiar to managers of any large, public-sector estate. Their portfolio is large and fast-changing, incorporating both trading and non-trading buildings, land, and infrastructure. Since 2016, PCSG has been engaged with the mission to develop an easy-to-use, secure “Digital Estate” that enables our client to quickly, accurately, and completely access their information, find the answers to their questions and gain insight into their operations. We will present an overview of our work to date, including key challenges faced and solutions developed.
