Engineering firm establishes data and analytics team

November 7th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

The Aurecon Data and Analytics team was established following the success of firm’s Machine Learning Lab. The team will address increasing demands for technology solutions that transform the design, construction and management of modern infrastructure. Using technology, they hope to extract insights to better understand engineering data from assets such as transport infrastructure, utilities and production facilities. Eric Louw will be leading a core group of data scientists and data engineers providing expert support to the firm’s multidisciplinary project teams in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and South Africa. The team will work with specialist groups including the asset management and infrastructure advisory divisions of Aurecon’s advisory business, and the recently-acquired Quartile One business, a market leader in data analytics within the resources sector. According to Aurecon Chief Digital Officer Dr Andrew Maher, the use of data to plan and build infrastructure, then operate, maintain and monitor it with unsurpassed quality of information is creating new opportunities. Louw said a great deal of progress has been achieved with advanced analytics in the consumer space, but that there are plenty of untapped opportunities to apply similar techniques in engineering, construction, infrastructure, and built environments.
