Our technology partners will be presenting seven in-depth 45-minutes sessions where they will demonstrate the functionality and capabilities of their innovative products. The partners will provide industry case-studies, and some will be represented by their clients from industry.
We are dedicated to self-improvement so, the Innovations Zone is an incubator for bold new project controls’ ideas, and a place where they can be openly discussed. It provides a space for our experts from across the professions to share concepts for managing projects, with new ways of thinking. In this way, 'best practice' rises to the top and new ideas are perfected.
“Real World” problems and issues are what brings the application of project controls alive. This case-study zone enables you to discuss the application of project controls and how they address the problems in a real-life project environment. This zone provides an opportunity to learn and share knowledge with others.
We treat Megaprojects as large-scale, complex ventures with budgets of >$1 billion They take many years to develop and build but make a long-lasting impact on the economy, environment and society affecting millions of people. Here you will discover how to use sound governance, while protecting the investments megaprojects represent.
The Masterclass Zone presents a fantastic opportunity to study and discuss the theory and practice of project controls. Our highly experienced project controls’ professionals from around the world, will provide 7 educational presentations that enable you to build and enhance your knowledge and skillset.
In this Zone we focus on social projects that impact the socio-economic environment surrounding them. We welcome submissions from government bodies and their projects, with a spending review period of 3-4 years. The aim for this area is to share and show the positive impacts they can have on society and what we have learnt from previous initiatives, to ensure success in the future.
This stream discusses the fundamental elements of project controls’ disciplines in detail. It provides further education and understanding aimed for beginners and intermediate project controls’ professionals. This is an exceptional opportunity for individuals who have just entered the project controls’ profession, or who wish to gain insight on the various sub-functions of project controls.
PCE is fully embracing digital ways of working in construction by using technological innovations such as BIM, robotics, virtual and augmented reality, and modular/offsite construction, to enable building digitally before building on site. Digital Construction Zone aims to discuss various tools, technologies, and contracts involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of places by discussing its application on real-life projects and/or the latest advancements.
