Travelling by car
There are several paid parking facilities in close proximity including Southbank Parklands and Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. There is some on-street parking but this is regulated and patrolled by Brisbane City Council with a 2 hour limit.
Advanced technologies have the potential to significantly impact how construction functions. In this seminar, the presenters will share their expertise and experience in two of such advanced technologies: 3D concrete printing and Building Information Modelling (BIM). The presentations will provide state-of-the-art of these technologies, current major research and industry projects as well as discuss where they are likely to move forward and transform our construction industry.
Don't miss out on the opportunity to attend this event. It will be of great interest to all members of the concrete construction industry. Join us to network with leading industry experts!

3D Concrete Printing
Professor Jay Sanjayan, Swinburne University of Technology
3D concrete printing is an innovative construction process for fabricating concrete components employing an additive, layer-based, manufacturing technique. This presentation will provide the state-of-the-art 3D concrete printing technology as well as current major research and industry projects. The presentation will also discuss where this emerging innovation is likely to move forward to realise its potential to transform our construction industry.
Matthew Hourigan, Transport and Main Roads
The Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads has recognised the importance of Digital Engineering (incorporating Building Information Modelling) in the delivery and management of major infrastructure assets across the Queensland network. Digital Engineering offers many benefits throughout the asset lifecycle and has the potential to drive efficiency, value for money, productivity and innovation. However, the application of Digital Engineering for infrastructure sectors presents a diverse set of challenges that need to be overcome with a consistent approach.
Matthew will outline TMR's developments of Digital Engineering and BIM focusing on bridge structures and piloted projects as well as TMR's journey in facilitating the adoption and integration of Digital Engineering in infrastructure projects enabling a collaborative way of working using digital processes to enable more productive methods of planning, designing, constructing, operating and maintaining assets through their lifecycle.
Stephen Grigg, Arup
Consultant and Design Perspective
Arup have been a leader in the adoption of BIM in Infrastructure, pioneering processes and technology whilst working with key clients to deliver complex multi-disciplinary projects. Collaboration has been the key and Arup have successfully implemented robust systems and workflows to deliver projects at all stages through their lifecycle.
Stuart Bull, Laing O'Rourke Australia
Innovation in a Contractors use of Digital Engineering
Laing O’Rouke has long been a driver of innovation and project delivery through the use of Digital Engineering. The Use of DfMA (direct for Manufacture and Assembly) and its pioneering use on the Leadenhall building in London has demonstrated the ability to construct buildings and infrastructure more safely, reduce risk, improve quality, predict problems and hand over a much better asset by the use of Digital Engineering.
Stuart will explain and demonstrate key areas of opportunity that Digital Engineering exploits as a ‘business as usual’ approach within the company as a whole and with our design partners and clients in particular, as well as innovations in the use largescale ‘3D’ prototyping processes of concrete components directly from 3D models currently underway in the UK.
