How Digital Engineering at Lendlease is facilitating the smarter delivery of the iconic Melbourne Metro Tunnel Project

We have the unique opportunity to get a glimpse into the digital engineering around the Melbourne Metro Tunnel Project – addressing all who feel affiliated to or are curious about Digital Engineering (note that the two presenters, Melinda Borg and Dominique Berger — Lendlease Engineering– have no approval to talk / answer questions about construction in this project).

When: Wednesday 31 October, 2:00pm-3:00pm

Where: Malaysian Theatre, MSD (basement)

Summary: Digital engineering is an essential tool for any infrastructure project. Digital Engineering can, and does involve a variety of technologies and systems, across a multitude of disciplines. The collaboration and integration of these disparate technologies and systems is where we at Lendlease believe the real value is realised. However, this integration is not always plug-and-play.
