Digital Construction is the process where digital tools create, coordinate and manage Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) digital assets across the entire project.

The competition reflects 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 Construction Cloud software to complete the tasks
