  • From laser scanners to drones, from sensors to the internet of things, a wealth of methods and data sources can help connecting our buildings and infrastructure with their digital twins in BIM but a futureproof strategy is advised.

I attended The Big 5 Construct Qatar to keep myself up to date with what’s going on in the local construction market with a focus on mainly contractors and suppliers. I’ve been attending The Big 5 shows for 5 years, it’s great that we now have one in Doha. My visit has been fruitful and I look forward to returning to this platform yearly!

I find the event to be very useful and I managed to get good principle leads that we can start doing business with and build long term relationships with and to work with them to build Qatar. It is a great event especially for those working in Facility Management and Interior Decorators. I’m sure to visit The Big 5 Construction Qatar even next year.
