The upcoming conference, scheduled for July 15-16, 2024, at Nelson Mandela University in Gqeberha, South Africa, focuses on Construction 5.0 (C5.0) as the next stage in global construction advancement. In contrast to the predominant Industrial Revolution 4.0 technologies, C5.0 emphasises a human-centric approach to construction, aiming for high efficiency, health and safety, sustainability, and innovation. The conference asserts that C5.0, aligned with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, has the potential to bring about increased profitability, environmental sustainability, customisation, and adaptability to market dynamics. The vision involves up-skilling and re-skilling the construction workforce to work collaboratively with new technologies, prioritising human-machine collaboration, sustainability, and societal transformation. The conference aims to address challenges and opportunities associated with C5.0, including the need for industry-wide acceptance of advanced technologies, substantial investments in training, and the critical role of C5.0 in addressing sustainability challenges in the construction sector. The agenda includes discussions on smart construction sites, Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and robotics in the context of C5.0.
