LIVING IN A WORLD TRANSFORMED
  • Describe role of government and nature of our Construction Industry 19 years from now.
  • Actions State and Local Officials Can Take Now to Prepare for that Future
living in a world transformed1
LIVING IN A WORLD TRANSFORMED
  • FORCES AT WORK TRANSFORMING BOTH THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY AND WAY STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS REGULATE FOR SAFETY AND ECONOMIC COMPETITIVENESS
  • 6 FORCES AT WORK
living in a world transformed2
LIVING IN A WORLD TRANSFORMED
  • SIX TRANSFORMING FORCES:

Demographic – aging population & immigration

Environmental – energy costs, resource depletion & global warming

Technological – rapid changes & new technologies

living in a world transformed3
LIVING IN A WORLD TRANSFORMED
  • 6 TRANSFORMING FORCES:

Economic – changing role of nation in global economy

Reduced Resources – demands for downsizing and increased efficiency

Public Safety - greater demand – natural disasters and terrorism

forces impacting state and local government
FORCES IMPACTING STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT
  • Demographics –

- 300 million Americans – increasingly multi-cultural and multi-lingual – immigration pressure

- Aging population – by 2020 – 40% over age of 50 / 25% over age of 65 –health care pressures costs – pressures on government pension funds

- 50% of senior management retiring in next 10 years - loss of institutional memory

forces impacting state and local government1
FORCES IMPACTING STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT
  • Environmental –

- Global Warming - Need to reduce greenhouse gases

- World supply of Oil and Natural Gas – Replace with alternative fuels

- Water and other resource conservation

- Hazardous waste disposal

forces impacting state and local government2
FORCES IMPACTING STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT
  • Technological

- Increased pressure on speed to market of new technologies e.g.- nanotechnologies / biomedical-mechanical

- Continuing rapid change in information technologies & demand for interoperability

- Aging infrastructure – roads, rails, bridges

forces impacting state and local government3
FORCES IMPACTING STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT
  • Economic

- Global economy – “The World Is Flat” – T. Friedman; Jobs and skills going off-shore

- Growing economic competitiveness within region as well as within world – Attract new and keep existing businesses in state/community

- Ability to absorb and recover from disruptions

forces impacting state and local government4
FORCES IMPACTING STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT
  • Reduced Resources to Government

- Tax payer & legislature limitations on revenues/expenditures

- Demands to downsize government

- Demands for greater governmental efficiency with less resources – “Do more with nothing”

forces impacting state and local government5
FORCES IMPACTING STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT
  • Public Safety – Greater demand after 9/11 and Katrina:

- Infrastructure secure from future terrorist actions

- Better preparation for, response to and recovery from large scale natural disasters – Katrina/Rita/

earthquakes, floods, winter storms.

2025 a world transformed
2025 – A WORLD TRANSFORMED
  • So What Will be the Impact of All of These Forces on Construction and the Way State and Local Governments Oversee:

- Building Design & Construction

- Disaster Preparedness, Response &

Recovery?

2025 a world transformed1
2025 – A WORLD TRANSFORMED

CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY IN 2025

“Using artificial reality tools, designers, and their clients can enter the structures they are planning. They can have the simulated experience of walking around in the structures”

- “Our Built World, 2025” Coates & Mahaffie

- Try & test different designs, materials, maintenance cycles, disaster scenarios, then build, inspect, commission, operate and maintain in computer

2025 a world transformed2
2025 – A WORLD TRANSFORMED

Building Information Modeling (BIM) - 3D / 4D design, construction, building operation, maintenance & renovation

Already being done - no blueprints, no change orders, suppliers use data to deliver and have components assembled on site.

- Virtual Builders Roundtable – 20 buildings

- C.A.V.E – Computer Analysis Visualization Environment

2025 a world transformed3
2025 A WORLD TRANSFORMED

Sensors and other technologies - Buildings will talk back –report on operating conditions, hazards, structural soundness

– In Response to 9-ll – already underway at NIST / DARPA – bio-chem-radiological / seismic

2025 a world transmformed
2025 - A WORLD TRANSMFORMED
  • Construction more automated – faster tracked -60% less time

- Research already underway - FIATECH,

GSA, National Laboratories, Colleges & Universities

2025 a world transformed4
2025 - A WORLD TRANSFORMED
  • Secure data bases of as built designs for first responders to use as they roll up on site of a disaster

- Recommendation already before U.S. Department of Homeland Security and under discussion in several states – WA, OR, CA, PA, LA

2025 a world transformed5
2025 – A WORLD TRANSFORMED
  • REGULATORY STREAMLINING – MORE EFFECTIVE AND EFFICIENT ENFORCEMENT – NOT REGULATORY ABANDONMENT
  • State and local governments with smaller staffs identify/ eliminate areas of overlap and duplication that slow construction process
  • Apply information technology to interface with I.T. used in building design, construction, operation, maintenance and renovation.
