SPI – The Remodelling of Kings Cross Railway StationSimon Wray

London’s King’s Cross railway station is one of the busiest stations in the United Kingdom, serving close to 40 million passengers each year. But it has been 25 years since any major intervention has taken place on the railway, and it is now in need of some major renewal and remodelling work.

Specialist Project Integration (SPI) are undertaking this massive £250 million project. Find out from Simon how success is being assured through the use of their digital twin platform.

Bentley Systems – Project iTwins – Glen Worrall

While there is plenty of talk about how the National Digital Twin is targeted at physical assets, Bentley have been working with projects on how to use Risk iTwins and Cost iTwins to provide immediate feedback to project teams on iTwins.

Infrastructure and Projects Authority  – Dr David Hancock 

Following the COVID crisis there is a golden opportunity to change the face of construction for the better; deliver sustained value for money, be more stable, more productive and more competitive. The government’s side of the bargain is to bring to market between £29 billion and £37 billion of contracts across economic and social infrastructure over the next year.

In return the expectation from industry is they will ‘step up to the plate’. It must maintain stronger supply chains, set training standards, develop and apply new technology to improve productivity, introduce higher levels of standardised components and follow fair payment practices. The Government is deeply serious about working with partners and across sectors to improve the delivery of projects and drive innovation in infrastructure. This will be a central pillar of our National Infrastructure Strategy.

Chapman TaylorAndy Hudson

Chapman Taylor Architects is a global practice of award-winning architects and masterplanners. In the post-COVID era, their clients will benefit from even higher standards of quality and consistency of design information due to the consolidation of their existing information management systems and data silos within the Microsoft365 platform.

A key aspect of the company’s switch to the new format was a collaboration with AEC technology expert Nittygritty to develop Atvero. Microsoft365-based Atvero is a record management system which provides a single pane of glass for contractual deliverables, capable of being authored and published from anywhere. Technical Director Andy Hudson will recount Chapman Taylor’s digital transformation from inception to deployment while providing a glimpse of the future direction for www.atvero.com.
