On Tuesday, April 24, leaders in the broad world of infrastructure renovation and evolution gathered at a restaurant in Manhattan to share their experience and to brainstorm to identify the most significant opportunities, challenges and, perhaps, solutions to the issue of infrastructure rehabilitation.
Their ideas have been documented in this comprehensive report: Getting Infrastructure Done.

“Our perspective is technology, how it will help you to improve what you’re doing to ensure the world has the infrastructure it needs, that it’s funded, but also how it might disrupt your industry.

Dominic Thesarathar, Strategist, Construction, Energy, and Natural Resources, Autodesk
