Blueprints to BIM:

Building a carbon-neutral campus

From improving socioecological outcomes to sustainability, decarbonisation, and state-of-the art learning, our aspirations for the campus of the future are ambitious and diverse.


The value of digital technology to optimise and improve planning and design though to sustainable operations of buildings and landscapes cannot be realised without: ​

  • fit-for-purpose data about our campus and people, ​

  • a digital culture to create, collect and share data, and ​

  • easily usable technology to derive and use insights to design, implement and test sustainable solutions. ​

This event will bring together panelists to discuss the technology, people and processes we need for a successful digital campus, in order to enable a sustainable, carbon-neutral future.
