Description

On 12 January 2018 Michael Chesterman of Helix Legal spoke to Chris Herde of the Courier Mail about what is on the cards for the construction industry in 2018. Whether you are a construction industry disruptor or an established business looking to learn new ways, come along to the Helix Insight Training.

In the session we will cover:

* Disruptive Trends for 2018

* Regulatory Challenges

* Risks and Rewards

What the Courier Mail said:

Mr Chesterman, who spent 22 years with the Queensland Building Services Authority and Queensland Building and Construction Commission, said research had shown that Australian construction tech start-ups had attracted at least $98 million in investment since the start of 2016.

He said with global construction output set to reach US$15.5 trillion by 2030, the pace of innovation and technology in the construction industry needed government and established industry participants to keep up with the changes to ensure quality and safety.

“One of the really confronting issues we will have over the next few years is how much building and construction work will be done under the old traditional means and how much will be done through new ways, like prefabrication enhanced by technology, like robots and artificial intelligence,” Mr Chesterman said.

“It’s a huge issue and I don’t think a lot of the industry is aware of how much change is coming through.

“Innovation is not just about apps. It’s about a sustainable and workable regulatory framework where new ideas are responded to with a combination of an open mind and responsible regulation and we expect to see more of this in the new year.”
