Hendry General Manager Building Consulting Paul Bailey will be speaking on a panel on the topic of:
Crisis or Opportunity? Combustible Cladding in the Skyscraper Sector
- After catastrophic fires damaged the foundations of high-rise apartments locally and internationally, various cladding taskforces have been formed around Australia to regulate usage of the material across the residential high-rise sector. Are these taskforces enough?
- Exploring innovative material alternatives to cladding.
- Reshaping responsibility, from government to industry.
Reshaping the High-Rise Sector, One Step at a Time
For three years now, the Australian Smart Skyscrapers Summit has committed to providing attendees with expert perspectives on the smart and sustainable design, development and construction of skyscrapers.
In 2021, the summit will seek to redefine what a ‘smart’ and ‘sustainable’ tall building looks like – especially within a climate of shifting reform and heightened focus on tenant safety. Safety across all stages of a high-rise’s lifecycle will be explored, from planning and development all the way to maintenance.
We want to equip attendees with the knowledge to produce safe, human-centric skyscrapers within state and nationally specific policy frameworks, and we will explore the appropriate concepts and methods for doing so. Our unique blend of keynote presentations, interactive panel discussions and hours of networking will allow you to gain a holistic understanding of skyscraper development today, while drawing you to the local and overseas leaders who can provide you with the opportunity to contribute to creating a better sphere of skyscrapers, Australia-wide.
Environmental sustainability, the role of technology, pleasing aesthetics and culturally inspired urban tall building design will still feature strongly within the 2020 program, but the summit will draw together these elements under the umbrella of achieving safer, more holistic and ultimately future-proof practices across the board.

Hendry’s General Manager Risk Gaurav Bhalla will be presenting on the topic of:
Construction Analytics: Mitigating risk and optimising assets via integration of AI and ML to enhance productivity and boost business performance
- Predicting cost overruns based on factors such as project size, contract type and the competence level of project managers
- Remotely accessing real-life training material which helps them enhance their skills and knowledge quickly
- Monitoring and prioritizing risk on the job site, so the project team can focus their limited time and resources on the biggest risk factors
Many E&C firms attempt to incorporate new technologies into their daily activities, but most of their efforts to digitize still tend to fall short. Why? That’s because a construction project typically involves multiple independent subcontractors and suppliers, which have little incentive to embrace new methods for one-off projects, so it’s often a struggle to implement tools they can apply repeatedly. This leads to the E&C sector consistently being one of the world’s least digitized and progressive.
Premature technological implementations only lead to further costs and burdens, and 35% of costs in E&C already comprise of waste material and remedial work! Firms, however, can buck this trend of bad investments if they seriously consider Big Data strategies. According to KPMG’s Future-Ready Index, the two technologies with the highest adoption rates amongst the top 20% E&C companies are BIM (86%) and basic data analytics (83%). These firms are leveraging valuable insights extracted from raw digital data to become true innovators in the industry, seeing their project costs and timelines being reduced significantly.
Rather than simply choose technology to help in the short term, the most effective step for E&C firms to take is to shore up their most vital processes first – the retrieval, collection, and analysis of information. For this sector to prove that it is capable of achieving true digital transformation, company executives and project managers must start with a clear definition of how digital can create value for the business and then introduce specific solutions to solve fundamental problems from the ground up.
Join us at the Data Analytics in Construction Summit to get ideas as to how to make the most ground-breaking impact in your construction designs and plans. Get in touch with E&C professionals who have successfully implemented data-driven solutions that allowed their firms to scale up and achieve consistent efficiency.
