“For the last ten years, the AEC industry has been obsessed with the transition to BIM.

AEC Magazine, the organiser of NXT BLD, has been at the forefront, covering the technology, processes and companies which have been driving the move to digital construction.

NXT BLD takes this one step further, bringing next generation technologies to life in an exclusive one day conference and exhibition, covering emerging technologies which facilitate new ways of designing, enhancing the use of 3D models, applying Artificial Intelligence and offering new possibilities in digital fabrication and construction.

For our third event on 11 June 2019, NXT BLD London will cover innovations in Digital fabrication, robots, 3D printing, Blockchain, IoT, Generative Design, Virtual and Augmented Reality, real time design visualisation and lots more.

Speakers come from leading-edge practices, as well as renowned technologists and design technology developers.

For those in practice who are tasked with researching new and emerging tools and technologies, NXT BLD is a must attend calendar event.”
