Digital transformation is the big challenge facing the construction industry – for too long it has been held back by traditional ways of operating and yet now it seems the circumstances have never been better for the mass take-up of new technologies. So, who are the people driving this revolutionary change? "There’s a misconception that BIM and digital are a nice to have or a surplus cost." "Most innovation is driven by economics … it’s about which technologies are accessible at an economic price point that makes them attractive to be implementable in the construction sector." "I have seen a robot that climbs and constructed lift shafts autonomously. It’s terrifying and brilliant at the same time."

This year’s Building Live conference brought together some of the most influential figures across the sector to talk about the future of the construction industry. From the housing crisis to the Hackitt review, and from the way technology and the changing environment influences the way we build projects to the delicate nature of the contractor market, there was plenty to get stuck into in an absorbing day’s discussion.

What do Millennials really want? The skills crisis continues to grip the construction industry as we’ve never seen it before. With more professionals within the industry retiring and a dearth of skilled workers choosing to join the sector, it has never been more important for firms to figure out how to attract - and more importantly, retain young professionals. Alinea’s Iain Parker was joined at this year’s Building Live conference by two member’s of Building’s recently-formed graduate panel - Emily Scoones, a structural computational design engineer at Ramboll, and Victoria Caines, a senior cost consultant at Mace. Listen to some of that session here, as we try and find out what makes the next generation tick in the workplace. Music was by Broke for Free, used under the Creative Commons licence.

How will construction, and the professionals working within the sector, adapt to an uncertain and rapidly changing world? Last month saw speakers and delegates alike at this year’s Building Live conference discuss and contemplate some of the biggest issues, including how the industry will need to adapt to the government’s response to the Hackitt review; how construction needs to become more efficient to deliver better quality; and how technology is changing how we design and construct buildings. The podcasts will cover issues such as contractor margins, the future for large firms in the industry, the housing crisis and how factors such as health and wellbeing are forming a larger part of a building’s design. You’ll also hear from individuals who are fairly new to the industry, as they share what the next generation want from their working environment, as well as how to retain them as the pool of skilled workers dwindles.
