Digital Fabrication: the New Normal - Australasia webinar

Digital Fabrication: the New Normal - Australasia webinar

In these unprecedented times, we are all rethinking how best to operate, fabricate and design our built environment in a complex, volatile and uncertain world.

The rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic will undoubtedly stimulate digital innovation. Arup is looking to forge creative partnerships aligned with its aspiration to reuse whatever we can and to reduce construction waste by applying the circular economy and digital fabrication techniques.

In this webinar, experts from across Arup discuss a range of topics including the introduction of augmented reality to the on-site construction industry and how better development of existing buildings can save carbon.
