In 2017 Hilson Moran celebrated its fortieth anniversary. In recognition of this achievement the practice produced a year of events and initiatives which looked forward to our next 40 years in design and construction, and consider how the industry will look in 40 years’ time.
Future Forty celebrated innovation and communication, asking questions about the state of design and exploring modern methods of construction, new technologies and design tools.
Our Emerging Technologies Hackathon Series delved into the possibilities offered to our industry by new innovations: How will wearables be used to make our buildings more efficient and improve the wellbeing of their occupiers? How will automotive vehicles impact upon the built environment?
In our Qatar and UAE offices, we will be looking at how advances in engineering are allowing us to design comfortable environments in this region, inside and out, while in Cambridge a panel discussion explored the pros and cons of autonomous vehicles.
