What is Smart Infrastructure?

The newly-launched Smart Infrastructure paper, a collaboration between CSIC and leading industry figures, defines digital infrastructure and presents the case for industry to embrace necessary change. The paper has been produced to help facilitate the adoption of 'Smart' and invites further discussion and debate in the comments section below.

Jennifer Schooling, Director of CSIC, said: “The key aim of CSIC is to transform the future of infrastructure and construction through smarter information. The Smart Infrastructure paper is the result of a collaboration with a number of our Industry Partners to demonstrate the value of Smart and identify the steps required to realise the full potential for the UK. We hope this paper will be the start of a bigger conversation.”

The writers and producers of the Smart Infrastructure paper include: Dr Jennifer Schooling, Director of CSIC; Dr Ajith Parlikad, CSIC Co-Investigator and Senior Lecturer; Mark Enzer, Global Water Sector Leader, Mott MacDonald; Keith Bowers, Principal Tunnel Engineer, London Underground; Ross Dentten, Asset Information and Configuration Manager, Crossrail; Matt Edwards, Asset Maintenance and Information Manager, Anglian Water Services; Jerry England, Group Digital Railway Director, Network Rail; and Volker Buscher, Director, Arup Digital.

It will be good if this organisation can guide major project planners (e.g. HS2) to perform the required engineering geology surveys prior to committing to a route. This would reduce the likelihood of the unnecessary expense of replanning and also of compulsory purchases and the disruption and they can cause.
