  • What? Digital technologies and the requirements of digital construction, describe the stages of adoption – which stage are you?
  • How? Describing a lifecycle/digital workflow of a project using digital construction. Examples of new workflows that are available.
  • How? What steps should a company or organisation take to deploy and reap the benefits of digital construction?
  • How? Can organisations implement digital construction? What support might they need during project delivery?
