It’s #TimeToBuild, and we believe the timing is perfect to consider technology and connectivity as new infrastructure is built, as a fundamental part of the thinking, planning, investment, implementation and ongoing management of “smarter smart communities.”

Smart City Works is hosting a day-long seminar in Washington, DC as part of Infrastructure Week, an annual series of events.

Our seminar will focus on the intersection of the physical and digital worlds, bringing experts in building smarter villages, towns and cities using connected solutions. Whether more efficient roads, bridges, tunnels and public transportation, the control and management of energy usage that reduces cost and carbon emissions, the use of cameras incorporated into assets to enable law enforcement to keep citizens safer and respond to natural disasters faster – technology is the lifeblood of next generation public investment in sustainable infrastructure.
