Abstract: The current state of digital engineering adoption falls short of its potential in terms of efficient data sharing and survey expertise in the field of civil engineering. There exists a disconnection between commercial management and geospatial surveyors, which has led to unsustainable practices in construction. To address this issue, our proposal emphasizes the importance of improved data management for sustainable growth in the construction industry. We believe that civil engineering surveyors should take the lead in bridging the gap between geospatial and commercial management through digital engineering, benefiting both the industry and society. To achieve this vision, the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (CICES) recognizes digital transformation as a crucial aspect for the future of the profession, ensuring its relevance beyond 2050. This paper identifies the barriers hindering the adoption of digital engineering, including information management, data sharing, and building information modeling (BIM) in infrastructure projects. It also outlines how surveyors can assess their digital maturity and take the necessary steps to overcome current and future challenges. In addition to individual efforts, this paper highlights the supportive roles of contracts, protocols, technology, education, training, standards, and professional bodies in enabling the desired change. A deeper understanding of the expertise of geospatial surveyors and commercial managers is crucial for informed decision-making in infrastructure projects. The paper recommends involving civil engineering surveyors earlier in the planning phase, as their input during this stage can significantly impact project outcomes. By understanding the required data, its accuracy, and its use in scenario planning, costing, scheduling, and monitoring, efficiency gains can be realized, leveraging the expertise of surveyors. The roles and engagement of surveyors throughout the project lifecycle are also outlined in the paper. The drafting of this paper involved the collaboration of over 30 surveyors, with the participation of industry bodies such as Survey4BIM, the UK BIM Alliance, Women in BIM, BIM4Heritage, and the BIM Academic Forum.
