Glider leaves its mark on Digital Construction Week 2022

Digital Construction Week, which took place on 18-19 May 2022 at ExCeL London, featured more than 300 expert speakers. The line-up included specialists from Glider, who held several exciting and insightful seminars on a variety of digital construction topics across two days, which sparked an engaging discourse on how digital methods are driving modern construction.

Glider is a reputable information management specialist, known for powering the digitalisation of the built environment with its data driven Common Data Environment (CDE), gliderbim®.  “We are delighted to have participated at Digital Construction Week 2022. This was an excellent opportunity to discuss how digital is revolutionising construction, and to use Glider’s expertise to educate others on how information management is playing a fundamental role in this.” commented Nick Hutchinson, Managing Director at Glider.

Glider was enthusiastic to impart its knowledge of building information management, and exhibited on a variety of related topics including: BIM, CDE/IM software, digital twins, smart buildings, digital handover, asset information management, open standards and interoperability, information security, and procurement approaches including  the Government Digital marketplace and G-Cloud framework.

John Adams, Head of Products, at Glider, presented on the Information Management Stage, delivering a presentation on: ‘A Spotter’s Guide to Smart Buildings, Asset Management and Digital Twins.’ In this talk, John discussed the key characteristics that smart building beginners can look out for when managing information.

John also joined panellists on the Information Management Stage to debate the issue of sustainability in a panel discussion titled: ‘The importance of change to future generations? Exploring what it means for the next generation for a business to put sustainability and carbon reduction at the top of the agenda.’

Following on from the Women In BIM Panel Session, Glider hosted a Women in BIM Networking Session, to introduce female construction professionals to industry experts with the objective of creating more diversity within the field.

Both John Adams, and Nick Hutchinson participated in the ‘Ask the Expert’ session for members of the UKBIMA Technology Group, where they shared their expertise on building information management.

Jane Dudson, the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) Deputy Head of Asset Information Management (AIM), gave a presentation titled: ‘The Opportunities for Digitalisation of the Defence State’, where she outlined how the Defence State is continuously elevating its AIM strategy. As DIO’s secure asset information management platform provider, Glider was pleased to extend its support.

Glider’s team thoroughly enjoyed presenting to, and networking with the forward-thinking professionals at DCW 2022, and would like to express their gratitude to all those who visited the Glider stand, or attended one of Glider’s live events or talks. Glider looks forward to attending DCW and connecting with attendees again next year.
