An audience of over 300 attendees in construction, real estate and property development and management, engineering solutions, specialist contractors, and other related industries heard insights from Mukund Sridhar, Partner at McKinsey Singapore, and the five founding members of the Asia Construction Technology Alliance.

Construction is a key pillar in many countries, yet remains among one of the least digitalised industries.
