10.45 Networking Break
10.55 Clive Paulse, GIS Lead at High Speed Two (HS2) Ltd - GIS at HS2
HS2 will be the new high speed backbone of our rail network connecting the city centres of Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds and London. Once fully completed, HS2 will have built 345 miles of new high speed track. This is a huge undertaking, creating Britain’s first new intercity railway north of London in 100 years and Europe’s largest infrastructure project.
Clive will talk about how GIS is contributing to the development of the HS2 Digital Twin at High Speed Two covering the need for good quality data and the strategies put in place to encourage innovation and collaboration.
11.10 Bruno Scott, Product Owner for all BIM/FM products at 1Spatial - Realworld 4D - Leverage your BIM data with GIS
Transportation infrastructure build and maintenance projects are large and complex activities, requiring support from multiple tiers of different organisations, each with their own functional expertise. Environment and Ecological Impact Assessments (EIAs) are mandated in the enabling phases of build projects, and aim to minimise harm and to maximise benefits for biodiversity resulting from any new infrastructure build.
Fundamental to the EIAs are surveys, which aim to collect data about the current environmental and ecological coverage across project areas. Data about bats, badgers and newts is collected from within the field using a variety of tools and processes by organisations within the supply chain. The wide variety of tools and processes used to collect the EIA data can result in a wide variety of quality, potentially calling for further post processing or manual rework within the field, both costly options.
Two of Europe’s most prominent and innovative engineering and construction companies – Laing O’Rourke and Murphy – have come together to form LM, a powerful joint venture, ready to support the growing number of major transport infrastructure projects across the UK. LM is the Enablement Partner of HS2 tasked with managing the EIAs for the northern area of Phase 1. In conjunction with LM, 1Spatial have developed an Ecology Survey Data Quality Portal which can be used by JV suppliers to ensure only data confirming to the HS2 specifications is submitted to them.
11.25 Mike Moseley, Knowledge Transfer Manager Construction - Digital Transformation Journey for Infrastructure
i3P, Infrastructure Industry Innovation Partnership, the successor to Crossrail’s Innovate 18, is the industries most significant cross organisational collaboration tool and data is at the centre of all of the successful i3P innovations. Mike will explore how the use of data in a range of i3P work from project scheduling to ground investigation data that has started to transform how we do things. Looking forward to what might be possible as we begin our transformational journey.
11.40 David Eagle, Head of FME Division at 1Spatial - Data Integration 'as-a-service'
The construction and engineering industries thrive on the exchange of data and information, however if that data is in a format or a structure you can't easily interpret, it introduces project delays. Delays typically mean penalties and these need to be avoided at all costs. Deploying a data integration platform for a relatively short project though, can be an overhead that is hard to justify, especially when you're working to a budget. That's where a managed service for FME; the defacto standard for data translation and transformation, can save you time, administrative effort and budget, with 1Spatial hosting a cloud based ETL service for you, either as a subscription or a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) commercial model. In this session David Eagle, 1Spatial's FME Division Manager will explain a little about the benefits afforded by a managed service for FME.
11.50 Virtual Tea Break and Networking
Join the rest of the event attendees for a virtual tea break and networking session– You can choose to stay on your table or move to meet with others. Chat openly as a table or privately. Meet with our in house data experts and find out more about the solutions on offer in the ‘side lounges’.
