Construction Innovation Forum 2022

11 May 2022 | VIC


After 18 months since our virtual Construction Innovation Forum in 2020, and almost three years since our last face to face Forum in 2019, it was exciting to see friends and colleagues face to face at this year’s Forum.

Being able to catch up with people at the Forum highlighted the importance of taking a little time out from daily tasks to consider the affects of the fourth industrial revolution on the Construction Industry and discuss how digital transformation and digital strategies can help to improve the outcomes of project teams, the performance of organisations, and ultimately how clients deliver better spaces for the community.

The expert line up of local and international speakers did not disappoint and showed how Digital Transformation continues to have a growing influence in the Construction Industry. The conversation was highly educational, with a few key themes emerging to provide insight into the construction industry’s path out of the pandemic including, the growing Digital Twin space, the importance of DfMA (Design for Manufacture and Assembly) and lean thinking, plus the critical need of consistent information requirements and data standards, further highlighting the importance of AMCA Australia’s leading industry initiative, BIM-MEPAUS.

AMCA Australia would like to take this opportunity to thank all our speakers, partners and delegates who joined us at MCEC and via our online stream. It is through their generosity and contribution that allows us to host for Forum for AMCA members and industry.

We look forward to catching up with you in person again at our next event.

 

Vale Warwick Stannus

 

AMCA Australia and the BIM-MEPAUS team would like to pass on our sincere condolences to Warwick Stannus’ family. After a long and courageous battle with ill health, Warwick passed away peacefully at home without regret and surrounded by his wife, three children, and loved ones.

As Group Engineering Manager of A.G. Coombs, Warwick has left a significant mark on some of Australia’s highest profile building projects. In 2009, Warwick presented a discussion paper to AMCA Australia highlighting the need for a collective response to the challenges facing HVAC contractors from the digitisation of the design and construction process. As a result, the BIM-MEPAUS initiative was formed with Warwick as the Technical Director and primary force driving the initiative. AMCA Australia is looking forward to continuing Warwick’s legacy through the BIM-MEPAUS initiative to advance the Construction industry.

With all of Warwick’s achievements, it’s his warmth, generosity, mentorship and quirky sense of humour will be remembered most by those who knew him well.
