Digital Engineering: The road ahead for Indian construction industry
Andreas Gerster, vice president BIM, lays emphasis on the fact that construction industry has not had much of technological advancements and modernization as compared to other sectors which have been drastically transformed
Bhupinder Singh, chief product officer of Bentley Systems, recognizes that enhancement of digital engineering technology is the need of the hour. He said “There is a massive movement of population from rural areas to urban areas and it adds tremendous strain to urban habitats. To solve the problem of urbanization, digitization is the imperative as we simply cannot afford to do the things we were traditionally doing”
When we talk about going digital it is about digital products, digital contacts and digital forums. In the world of construction, every piece of infrastructure is somewhere on the planet and huge sum of money is squandered either on renovation or on pre-construction surveying. “Billions of dollars can be saved by 3d modeling, going digital and completely revolutionizing survey. There are so many examples. With photographs, anything from earthquakes to apartments can be modeled and a geospatial component added to enhance its appeal and make it more precise”, added Bhupinder Singh.
