As well as regularly speaking on the subject of the use (and misuse) of BIM, Surin has expertise in areas as diverse as artificial intelligence, renewable energy technologies, digital twins, data and analytics, standards and regulations.

He says, “I am passionate about innovating and transforming business models which have been challenged by new technologies, new competitors, and market shifts, delivering innovative and commercially favourable solutions to all technical, commercial and digital matters.”

Surin has a Masters Degree in mechatronics, electronics and engineering and a post-graduate diploma in Sustainable Built Environment.

Further high-profile speakers will shortly be announced for the event, the second Construction Technology Summit, which is being organised as a collaboration between Construction Europe and International Construction.
