Digital Construction is the process where digital tools are applied to create, coordinate and manage Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) digital assets across the entire lifecycle of the project. This process as defined in the ISO 19650 suite of standards, permits the collaboration between the AEC Disciplines.

The competition has been designed to reflect the practical, hands on skills to enhance the process of delivering and operating the built Environment. Working on a Digital Construction project information model, competitors will be required to produce Structural and Architectural Models and should have a full understanding of ISO 19650-1 and 19650-2 BIM standards and be able to apply their knowledge practically in different situations. Competitors must use Autodesk Revit, Autodesk Navisworks and Autodesk BIM360 software to complete the tasks.

You can find a suite of materials and resources to help you prepare for the Digital Construction competition here.
