Project Data Analytics Visionaries

Grant Findlay, Strategy Director shares his insights on the importance of project data analytics and how the profession needs to change.

Project data analytics is at the forefront of Sir Robert McAlpine’s development and innovation, not only has it transformed the company but is also helping to shape the industry.

Leading this vision from shaping the strategy for the Project Data Analytics Task Force through to chairing the Construction Data Trust is Grant Findlay, Strategy Director.

“Data has an important role to play in the future of construction and we recognise its value in driving up productivity and the economic viability of our projects.

As we turn our attention to the future, the key to facilitating the path to economic recovery will be our ability to facilitate access to data. Whilst the emergent project data analytics community in the UK is already the world’s largest forum for discussing and sharing ideas and good practice, with more than 6,500 participants, it now needs to broaden the sectors, professions and roles which participate.”

Join Grant as he discusses why and how he believes the profession needs to change, the potential available to us and shares insights into this journey so far. Although his focus is on the construction industry, the insights will be applicable to every sector that aspires to transition towards data driven project delivery.
