Digital Construction

Plan, design, build, maintain and operate smarter cities using spatial analysis.




Esri’s ArcGIS played a key role in the delivery of Crossrail, one of the largest infrastructure projects in Europe since the Second World War - costing £15b and taking 10 years. Learn how GIS has been used throughout to ensure the project is on time and budget and to provide data to staff, contractors and the public, as well as how the GIS team are disseminating lessons learned to the wider industry.

Innovation in the built environment

Thrive in the emerging digital construction economy with intelligent mapping and analysis tools. Use advanced analytics to plan, design and create a smarter, more efficient, collaborative and resilient built environment whilst reducing costs, driving efficiencies and improving profitability.


Plan intelligently with 2D and 3D visualisation and analysis. Model scenarios and share information, considering the natural and built environments from the very first stages of planning and design.

Geospatial analytics

Combine CAD workflows with geospatial visualisation and spatial analysis to give a holistic perspective of the surrounding environment to enable informed design decisions.

Share & collaborate

You can share your information and metadata with your colleagues, supply chain, contractors and clients. Using Story Maps you can collaborate with the general public and involve decision makers much earlier in the design and construction process.

Real-time situational awareness

Use real-time data processing, dashboards and mobile tools to facilitate the smooth and safe operation of completed facilities and to demonstrate a resilient future to stakeholders.

Operational intelligence

Connect field crews through real time mapping applications to coordinate construction, on site and in the office, during the build phase, both safely and efficiently.
