TIME AGENDA
Morning Site Tour 1: University of Technology Sydney

UTS Tech LabThe digital revolution in engineering has given architects and builders the power to bring designs to life with ever more complexity, efficiency and innovation. Join us for a tour of the University of Technology Sydney’s multi-disciplinary laboratories to witness the technology behind these exciting new possibilities in action. Among the facilities you will visit are: the Center for Autonomous Systems, recognized world leader in autonomous and human-interactive robotics; the Motion Platform & Mixed Reality Lab, incubator of research into human-AI interfaces; the Center for Electrical Machines and Power Electronics, home to investigation and design of complex future energy and electric power systems; and the Geotechnical Lab, driver of collaborative research in civil infrastructure through advanced soil analysis techniques.

Afternoon Site Tour 2: Laing O’Rourke Innovation Lab

Site Tour 1Engineering has gone digital. Powered by 3D modelling, virtual reality, real-time data mapping and more, infrastructure designers and builders are reaping huge benefits in efficiency, quality and sustainability. Among these is engineering & construction giant Laing O’Rourke, whose highly developed digital engineering capabilities have delivered one of the UK’s most technically complex buildings, the Francis Crick Institute, and the innovative multi-modal Heathrow Terminal 5, among others.

Delve into how they did it in this exclusive tour of Laing O’Rourke’s Innovation Lab, described by the Australian Financial Review as “resembling something like the futuristic lab of James Bond’s eccentric Q character…a playroom of robotic arms, 3D printers, cyborg-like exoskeletons and digital screens”. You will learn more about the technologies and methodologies leading the engineering & construction of tomorrow.

Space in Each Site Tour is Limited, Registrations Will Be Available On First Come, First Reserved Basis
