Abstract

Digital technologies are influencing the way we live. It is also shaping the way we design, construct, and manage the built environment around us. From collaborating design and construction ideas to creating the actual design to communicating onsite to training construction workers on health and safety issues there are different levels of involvement of the information and telecommunication technologies in the construction industry. Use of these diverse digital technologies is also spread through to the manufacturing building materials, public planning, and inspection process. The aim of the study is to offer a structured overview, which encapsulates these digital technologies that are being used and can be used in the AEC and property professionals. This study will also explore how these technologies can be introduced to the future professionals who will be the part of this digital practice. The study considers the need for a seamless approach to integrate digital technologies in built environment education and industry where blend of theoretical understanding of the subject
