Smart Cities – More Than Just Gigabytes

Carl Bodimeade, SVP Hatch Mott MacDonald

Smart Cities conjures up images of Information & Communication Technology (ICT) centric cities, creating the perception that technology will shape our urban futures in the world, in which urbanization is an undeniable trend. Technology will indisputably be an essential enabler; however, it takes more than bits and bytes to make a city “smart”. We believe our urban futures are being shaped by very powerful contradictions: resistance vs resilience, doing more with less vs doing more with more, centralisation vs de-centralisation, etc. Examples from the GTA, and other cities will be used to demonstrate how advances in ICT, “big data” and innovative approaches can be leveraged in city infrastructure, services and planning to maximize socio-economic benefits and address some of their most pressing problems.

Carl Bodimeade has over 30 years of experience in project management, engineering and planning for a wide range of projects in the water & wastewater, urban infrastructure and brownfield development, and power sectors. He is Senior Vice President of Hatch Mott MacDonald, responsible for strategy and business development of the Canadian business unit. Carl is regularly invited to participate in expert panels on infrastructure funding, the value of water, sustainability and urban resiliency. He has also contributed to several thought-leadership reports on the water and urban sustainability. As a member of the Infrastructure Committee of the Toronto Board of Trade, Carl helped develop policy positions and advocated for the strong infrastructure important to the GTA’s economic competitiveness.
