    Topic Suggestions:

    The Future Infrastructure Summit provides a unique and remarkable opportunity to join a limited group of fellow industry leaders and learn from global experts who are using Lean thinking and Digital Engineering to navigate these challenges while enhancing the value their organisations provide on projects. Enhancing productivity is all about being able to do more with the limited resources we have. This year’s theme focuses on the many ways in which digital engineering, and lean thinking and tools, provide the best opportunity for industry to become more productive while enhancing the safety and sustainability of our projects.

    Whilst we are open to a wide range of topics, we’re particularly interested in industry focused talks and training sessions within the spectrum of:

    • Doing more with less
    • Overcoming the challanges of Covid
    • Enhancing Productivity
    • Implementations of Lean Construction systems in Australia, Last Planner, 5S, Kaizen, etc.
    • Collaborative Contracting (in particular, IPD)
    • Using technology or process improvement to increase productivity
    • Industry case studies of Lean, GIS or BIM implementations
    • Benefits and challenges of open data exchange & using IFC
