BaseStone at Digital Construction Week 2018

BaseStone will also be providing two presentations, so be sure to not miss them if you plan on attending the event (full session descriptions and times below).

17th October 12:30 – 12:45, Tech Stage: The largest problem in the construction industry by Alexander Siljanovski MEng(Hons) MSc CEng MIET FRSA Chief Executive Officer – BaseStone 

Poor productivity is one of the largest problems in the construction industry, with estimated losses worldwide of $1.6tn per year. Technology has been seen as a productivity enabler in many industries, and construction offers the largest potential productivity gain. However, construction is often the last industry to adopt new technologies. BaseStone, through our mobile and web based collaboration tool, has for the past few years been direct involved in addressing the productivity problem head on. In this talk we will discuss our findings, wins and challenges faced in cracking the largest problem in construction.

18th October 15:30-16:00, Industry 4.0: Blockchain in construction by Dr. Simon McCabe, Chief Technology Officer – BaseStone

Introduction to the blockchain: An overview of areas of applicability Benefits and Blockers. Is the blockchain fit for construction and is construction fit for new technology?  What are the real problems that the blockchain can solve? What are vanity ‘me too’ projects Quality and evidence is? If trust is the issue does the Blockchain solve it? What does the blockchain mean for quality? Why is this needed in construction? How could it change the industry Conclusion? You can’t solve business problems with technology.  You can improve business with technology. Construction needs innovation but needs to tread carefully. These are all the questions that will be answered in Dr. Simon’s lecture on Digital Construction Week 2018.

Also, we would like to remind you that we have been shortlisted for the  2018 Digital Construction Awards in the Category for the Best Application of Technology! Our nomination for this category comes down to the massive productivity gain of 60% that was achieved using BaseStone, by our partner and long-standing customer, the Costain Skanska Joint Venture (CSJV), for their work on the London Underground Bakerloo Line Link (BLL) project at Paddington Station.

The winners will be announced at the Digital Construction Awards on the 17th October – so wish us the best of luck!
