CIQS – British Columbia Dinner Event featuring Sunny Ghataurah – One of the Industry Leaders and Award Winner!
*** Presentation Topic ***
Disrupting the Building and Infrastructure Industry!
Technology is a double-edged sword bringing both opportunities and risks. A large portion of today’s jobs are expected to be obsolete. Start-up companies are disrupting heavily regulated industries worldwide. The building industry is the only industry that hasn’t seen disruption, yet! We are using construction techniques that haven’t varied in over 100 years, yet live in a digital world that is experiencing exponential change. This visionary talk outlines the opportunities and risks that this change brings. It identifies the broken-ness while showcasing some of the technology that is in use and available, today, along with opportunities for the future.
