The built environment

"We are in an unprecedented period of technological change and disruption – an ‘Information Tsunami’ – BIM, blockchain technology, machine learning, IoT, Big data analysis, AI-based intelligent advisors etc. This is having a profound effect on most sectors, especially financial services, and will clearly cause major disruption in construction. The UK Government has been highly successful in encouraging FinTech to rejuvenate the Banks, and is now encouraging similar initiative in HealthTech, and LawTech. The Construction Blockchain Consortium aims to encourage change and respond to opportunities."
