FutureScot’s one-day conference will showcase how the construction industry and operation management professionals approach social and economic infrastructure - through the use of digital technology - and is the essential guide to sustainable building practice. By attending, you will get the latest from the UK’s leading experts on a range of built environment topics, from understanding the needs of users, to enabling ‘right first time’ delivery and providing buildings and infrastructure documentation as quickly, efficiently and as useable as possible.

Focusing on how we plan, build, maintain and use that infrastructure - as well renew and replace existing built assets - the conference will examine how practitioners make better use of buildings, with the aim of providing improved social outcomes, increased productivity and inclusive growth. 

It will also feature the Scottish Government’s latest thinking on the vision toward ‘A Digital Estate’ and how it can extend its benefits into other sectors, such as technology, smart cities and conservation, providing insights into new and emerging technologies - as well as being a forum for delegates to learn, share and network.
