This breakfast briefing event with Invennt will explore how structural engineers can meet the demands of structural change in the built environment.

The built environment is undergoing a profound shift. The aftershocks of a global pandemic, climate change, economic instability and disruptive technologies are reshaping the places and spaces in which we live, travel and work. 
 
These changes make it more important than ever to empower innovative minds in structural engineering and give them the freedom to adopt new approaches and techniques. Our panel of experts will explore how structural engineers can embrace operational, data and financial strategies to help them work smarter and leverage new sources of funding.

Themes include:

  • Adapting existing assets to cope with a changing climate
  • Improving materials and labour efficiency using data and technology
  • Embracing technology to reconfigure existing buildings and assets sustainably
  • Retrofitting legacy buildings to meet current environmental performance standards
  • Utilising data to understand and monitor structural behaviour, loads and health
  • Demonstrating value and differentiation in an increasingly competitive market
 

The briefing will begin with a light breakfast followed by a panel discussion chaired by Tim Fitch. After the initial discussion, the chair will invite the audience to ask the panellists questions and share their thoughts. The event will conclude with a short informal networking session and discussion.
