Transforming Water Sector Project Delivery Using Digital and Off-Site Techniques

The UK water sector is moving towards a delivery model based on the principles of digital design and delivery management, BIM and off-site construction. This presentation will examine the progress being made on this journey by the water companies and supply chain, and will share examples of completed larger-scale DFMA projects in the UK and beyond, where this approach has yielded genuine tangible benefits and delivery efficiencies.
