Event description

Description

A new era in the Civil Engineering industry is emerging with technology and tools that are changing how traditional companies design, plan and execute projects. Many companies have begun using new digital software tools such as Artificial Intelligent (AI), Information Technology (IT), Internet of Things (IoT) & Robotics to enhance their effectiveness and productivity of daily activities. This one-day CPD course includes multiple case studies on how these digital tools provide a better execution of the global built environment projects. All our instructors are active in the field using the latest state-of-the art technology.

Course Outline

  • Overview of the current technology using Artificial Intelligent (AI), Information Technology (IT), Internet of Things (IoT) and Robotics in the construction industry
  • Case studies from completed and current projects including:
    • Optimisation structural design of super-high building using Artificial Intelligent (AI)
    • Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) application in the construction site
    • Construction site access control system
    • Smart safety helmets application with IoT
    • 3D printing, bricklaying robots and exoskeletons application in the construction site

Course Instructors

Professor Thomas Bock is a professor of building realization and robotics at Technische Universität München (TUM). He got his education in architecture at Stuttgart University in Germany, in engineering at IIT in Chicago in USA as Fulbright Scholar and in construction automation and robotics at University of Tokyo in Japan. He spent 10 years abroad mostly in EU, USA and Japan. Professionally he worked in the prefabrication industry for precast concrete elements in Germany and Iran, designed and built in Germany, Spain and Costa Rica. Academically he focuses since 35 years on automation and robotics in building construction, from the planning, prefabrication, on site production and utilization phases to the reorganization and deconstruction of a building. He started the national French commission “robotique en BTP” in 1989 as “poste rouge” employee at CNRS, was involved in the development of 50+ robotic systems for stationary production of modules made in concrete-masonry- timber- steel, on site robotic systems, automated construction and deconstruction sites and mechatronic building subsystems for daily life/work support. He is a member of several boards of directors of international associations and is a member of several international academies in Europe, Americas and Asia. He consulted several international ministries and evaluates research projects for various international funding institutions. He holds honorary doctor and professorship degrees and visiting professorships. Professor Bock serves on several editorial boards, heads various working commission and groups of international research organizations, authored and co-authored 450 articles and the recent 5 volume Construction Robotics handbook series at Cambridge University Press.

Harry Chan is the founder and CEO of Beelnventor, Hong Kong. He founded BeeInventor two years ago with a focus on developing IoT products for construction. Qualified in engineering and finance, Harry has over 20 years of experience across the whole spectrum of developmental stages of capital projects. He specialises in construction technologies, commercial and procurement advisory (specialise in NEC target cost contracts), financial and investment analysis, project control and risk management in infrastructure, resources and renewable projects. He has been involved in a wide range of projects including: passenger and freight rail, power station, wind farm, roads, water treatment works, waste management facilities, sport stadium, commercial building, age care facility and hospitals with an aggregate value up to HK$60b. His in-depth understanding of the technical, financial and commercial risks inherent in capital projects is central to his approach.
