Welcome to the BILT Academy Podcast!

Our fourth episode has been curated by our BILT Academy correspondent David. This month's podcast is a technology podcast, and in it, David interviews four industry experts about the topic of Automation.

This month we explore the concept of automation within the construction industry. Over the last few years, automatization has increasingly made its way into our environment and has quickly been evolving in many ways. In order to better understand the future of automation in the AEC industry, we have interviewed a variety of experts, each with their own perspectives on automation. These perspectives range from automation in software engineering, data collection on construction sites, prefabrication and manufacturing. By asking them what automation looks like and who it's useful for we hope to offer you the listeners an insight into the role of automation in the construction industry and how they come together to shape the future of the sector and our built environment. 

  1. Software deployment and automation with Gordon Price of Pragmatic Praxis.
  2. Robotics and construction site data collection with Brian Ringley of Boston Dynamics.
  3. Concrete 3D printing and automation in manufacturing with Eric Barendse of Bruil
  4. Automation Now and in the future from the perspective of recent graduate Florin Ghimicj.
