towards Vision 2030
Day 1: Building tomorrow's infrastructure
On Day 1 of the summit, speakers emphasized the importance of stakeholder collaboration, including among the public and private sectors and project owners, while building trust to deliver mega and giga projects efficiently. Another key takeaway was the growing use of modular and offsite construction in delivering some of the most complex projects, as well as the role of BIM 360 in connecting stakeholders throughout the project lifecycle.
The panel discussion on driving net zero and circularity in infrastructure featured several well-known faces, including Emma Dannemiller, Head of Sustainability and Risk, ENOWA; Steve Lemoine, CEO and General Manager Middle East, Dalkia EDF Group. The session on adopting smart investment decisions to support infrastructure development introduced Greg Djerejian, Group Head of Investments & Legal, Red Sea Global.
Day 2: Improving water resilience in Saudi Arabia
Day 2 of the summit focused on an exclusive and high-level gathering of leaders and policy makers from the water industry.
A key takeaway from the final day of the summit was the need to increase the participation of private sector in delivering the National Water Strategy while enhancing the collaboration between stakeholders to meet the growing water demand. Another highlight was the emphasis on discovering key trends in public-private partnerships in water supply and sanitation.
“The Saudi Infrastructure Summit brought together experts from the public and the private sector to discuss the transformative future of the infrastructure and water industries. The summit became a platform for the community to come together and find the technology and solutions to support the further growth of the sectors,” said Muhammed Kazi, Vice President – Construction at dmg events.
