Infrastructure Footprint’s editor (and now PCSG’s Head of Cities and Communities) John Twitchen will be chairing two BRE conferences over the next few days, both looking at the Smart Cities transition and with highly knowledgeable and influential speaker line-ups.
On Thursday 26 January, ‘Connected Cities’ considers how to deliver smart agendas at the local level. With a keynote address by Tom Stonor of Space Syntax and contributions from the GLA’s Andrew Collinge and Peter Farnham of the OPDC, it’s an event not to be missed.
The following week, ‘Smart Delivery of City Infrastructure’ will look at priorities for city infrastructure and in particular digital challenges. The 2 February event’s keynote address will be delivered by ICE President Prof Tim Broyd, and London Underground’s Head of Development, Charles Mills, will present on the use of BIM in LU’s station renewal programme. Meanwhile, infrastructure planning expert Angus Walker of Bircham Dyson Bell will look at the challenges of meeting city infrastructure priorities.
John said: “These two events should be really interesting, and I’ll be looking out for the practical lessons as well as the theoretical applications. There’s a real sense of momentum building around the smart cities transition, and it’s exciting to be part of such an important area of activity at PCSG.”
