PlanTech Week 18 is the second annual week looking at how digital transformation will disrupt and improve the planning system. Over the course of the week, we heard from more than 15 speakers across four events, with specialisms ranging from conservation science, local government and 3D Modelling.
As part of the series of events, we created a new exhibition showcasing some of the most exciting innovations and companies working in PlanTech.
“Mapping the real estate projects of today. Inspiring the projects of tomorrow”
Built-ID’s engagement tools enfranchise the silent majority, transforming community buy-in for both public and private development schemes. The prototype exhibited illustrates a virtual map tour of the City of London. This Map Tool is powered by the consultants themselves, who showcase their work on Built-ID.
FLOW helps transport operators and local authorities plan and monitor smarter transport mobility solutions by simulating the impact of new or adjusted transit and on-demand transport services, infrastructure investment and road and parking management. FLOW can predict changes in ridership, on-time performance and emissions resulting from both incremental and strategic changes to the transport network. This helps public agencies proactively manage every aspect of transport provision.
(Social Infrastructure Demand Modelling)
SidM Systems is a suite of cloud-based digital spatial tools designed to assist in social infrastructure planning and provide a data-driven evidence base for needs assessments, infrastructure plans, local plans as well as planning of social infrastructure assets.
It has been designed and developed by Coplug (Design and Technology), a London based start-up founded by professionals working within London local authorities, with a dedicated team of data scientists and software developers specialising in spatial data analytics.
Participatr creates interactive online tools for town planners, architects, developers, local government, others to gather ideas, aspirations and feedback on built environment projects.
Participatr’s tools are designed to overcome the real-life barriers that ordinary people face when getting involved in the planning process.
Commonplace is an award-winning digital engagement and consultation platform for cities and places.
Commonplace helps cities, developers and infrastructure providers to maximise reach into communities. It does this by delivering broad participation communities that are traditionally harder to reach.
