WGIC received accession as an Associate at WFEO and a formal announcement was done during the World Engineers’ Convention (WEC 2019) in Melbourne in November 2019 during WFEO General Assembly. During the general assembly in 2019, WGIC presented its perspectives and vision to actively work with WFEO on the development of joint programs and papers on the integration of geospatial know-how in advancing AEC.
At the WFEO General Assembly, WGIC also interacted with members of WFEO technical committees to find synergies for co-operation:
- Engineering & the Environment,
- Disaster Risk Management
- Engineering for Innovative Technologies
- Information & Communication,
- Energy, and
WGIC will be working on a series of Joint Papers with WFEO on ‘Value of Integrated Geospatial and Building Information Modeling (BIM) Solutions to advance UN Sustainable Development Goals’ to help larger AEC community benefit from the body of knowledge that WFEO & WGIC would like to create together through such association.
