Episode 38: Salla Eckhardt - The digital building lifecycle framework and innovation in the built environment
Salla Eckhardt, Director of Transformation Services at Microsoft, joins us to chat about rebranding traditional Construction processes and the digital building lifecycle framework. We discuss the disconnect between AEC & O, the top innovations happening in the built environment right now, such as open innovation, how the digital building lifecycle framework improves the profitability of projects and helps decide what needs to be delivered, when, and the biggest obstacles in adopting the digital building lifecycle.

Excited for the challenge, Salla is looking forward to collaborating with the AEC industry entering into the digital frontier and reimagining what the digital built environment can be in terms of physical, social and virtual space.
