Winning the Bid – The Impact of Digitalisation on Infrastructure Projects

Over the next decade, the Australian Government is set to invest a record $100 billion in infrastructure projects. This presents an enormous opportunity for Australian engineering and construction firms.

But how can you prepare to win the bid over a multinational firm, who are often more capable of delivering on these large scale projects?

Drones and AR aside, engineering and construction firms are improving their competitiveness in the market through more accessible technology that enables them to bid accurately, reduce risk, and deliver projects on time.

Join us for a webinar on Thursday, 22nd October as our industry experts outline what is expected of engineering and construction firms when bidding on large infrastructure projects. They will discuss the importance of data security measures, communication standards, and share how they’ve used new technologies to collaborate efficiently, despite the challenges brought by a global pandemic.

Key Takeaways:

How technology can assist in accurate bidding
Best practice in project management through technology integration
