The research identifies three connected,
overlapping dimensions or ‘spaces’ in which infrastructure stakeholders are racing
to adapt their assets. The first, the physical space, highlights the changing
needs and expectations of people in their buildings, factories, facilities,
offices, homes and surrounding infrastructure.
The second dimension, the digital space,
discusses the evolution of the operational backbone of physical spaces, driven
by advances in AI, automation, energy systems, connectivity and data-driven
predictions. The third dimension, the Earth space, discusses the impact of
physical and digital spaces on the planet as a whole, including a revolution in
energy systems which will create a sustainable legacy for future generations.
In each of these spaces, ‘A New Space Race’
explores the challenges and hazards those concerned will need to address, in
order to stay ahead. Read the full report
