Building the Future with a Growing Population


The shift to more urban living means cities will need more housing and infrastructure. That need presents both an opportunity and a challenge for architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals. They get to design, plan and build more, but they have to do it on a planet with already-stressed resources. 

The AEC industry must fundamentally rethink how it designs, constructs, and operates the built environment. Innovative firms around the world are doing this already by adopting new technologies that improve efficiency and productivity like building information modelling, prefabrication and modular construction, generative design and robotics.
