WDBE will bring top professionals in the real estate and construction sector together at the Paasitorni Congress Centre in Helsinki on 24–25 September. 

WDBE is an international event for professionals organised by KIRAHub, Kira Forum and the Finnish Association of Civil Engineers.

This event is aimed at all actors in the sector, from developers to workers, from clients to end users, and from the public sector to companies. It will involve discussions of the opportunities and future prospects involved in the digitalisation of the built environment. The themes cover issues such as the customer experience, ecosystems and business models.

Timo Makkonen, CEO of Congrid, will take the stage to discuss how digitalisation and cooperation between different stakeholders have a major impact on the success of construction projects.

Makkonen's presentation will also provide concrete examples of how data transfer between software applications has helped Congrid's customers to manage projects more effectively.

Congrid carried out a survey in spring 2019 with the University of Turku, interviewing the company's customers. A joint statement by Congrid and the University of Turku discusses the key findings and insights about which aspects of digitalising documentation can bring value to customers.

Congrid has developed a digital platform for the management and monitoring of quality and occupational safety on building sites. The company promotes the digitalisation of the construction industry and the distribution of information during each phase of construction. The more seamless cooperation is on a building site, the better the quality and safety of construction.

Participation in the WDBE is an important milestone for Congrid. The digitalisation of the construction sector continues apace, and new operating models are being adopted. Congrid has the honour of being part of this development.

The themes and times of our presentations are given below.

11.45 The value of digitalised documentation 

Congrid carried out a survey in spring 2019 with the University of Turku, interviewing the Congrid’s customers. A joint statement by Congrid and the University of Turku discusses the key findings and insights about which aspects of digitalising documentation can bring value to customers.

Speakers:

Taina Eriksson, University of Turku

13.45 Quality is built on common purpose - software approach 

Quality & Safety should be a shared and common matter, and everyone should understand their part in the big picture. When all recorded issues are collected transparently to the platform(s) and the information is shared/assigned to relevant stakeholders’ chance of human mistakes is reduced. 

Speaker:

Timo Makkonen, Congrid Oy

 

14.15 Breaking the data barriers between systems - Customer case  

Common problem on construction project is the fact that stakeholders lose data at each handover during projects’ phases. Planning, construction and facility management are isolated and therefore, the common goal is lost during the process. We’ve implemented API based data transfer with our customer’s and successfully combined the ERP world with our point solution. This presentation will include more detailed description about the implementation and describe the achieved customer benefits of combining the data.
