Digital design and digital transformation are converging global trends
dwp|research: What does digital design & digital transformation really mean for the future of the design and construction industry?
Digital design and digital transformation are converging global trends. Some industries are immediately impacted, yet in the architecture, construction, and property sectors, we are only starting to feel the full extent to which their business will need to adapt. At dwp – design worldwide partnership, we expect to see significant disruption escalating in the next five years with impacts that will transform our sector.
These industries aren’t new to technological change with the adoption of 2D and 3D computer-aided design and now Building Information Modelling (BIM) and the connected buildings, the Internet of Things (IoT).
Technology offers new a change in the design process by using new materials and collaborative working practices. The digital transformation method provides these industries with design opportunities that will enable them to face urbanisation and sustainability. Transformation means more than creating more efficient services; it continuously improves project outcomes for users, communities, and the environment.
