Despite a force majeure port slowdown hampering the procurement of a Chinese curtain wall, German cabinets and Italian window-washing equipment, San Francisco’s 399 Fremont finished nearly two months early.
Shanghai Construction Group ranks protecting the crews working 300 meters above grade and higher—especially while erecting the cantilevered steel structure and the curtain-wall bracing system—as the most challenging aspect faced during construction of the 632-m-tall Shanghai Tower.
The Dept. of Energy continued its campaign to halt construction of the multibillion-dollar Mixed Oxide Fuel Fabrication Facility project, often referred to as MOX, this time by pointing out construction errors and defects during a Sept. 8 media tour of the Savannah River Site facility.
At the mouth of the Bay of Fundy on the border between easternmost Maine and New Brunswick, Canada, Ocean Renewable Power Co. has been testing huge undersea turbines that the company claims eventually will generate low-cost tidal power from the tidal flow in Cobscook Bay for all of Downeast Maine.
This webinar will discuss how and why construction managers have developed their own mobile apps in house. This event will dive into how these apps can assist with preconstruction planning, tracking project kickoff meetings, materials and tools management, providing updates on projects and transferring data.
This webinar will teach attendees how to determine what the common electronic file-sharing practices that construction teams are using today, assess why current file-sharing practices can be disconnected and problematic, how they can pose risks to the enterprise and when they can actually hinder collaboration among project teams. This event will also discuss how to identify new trends in file-sharing that will lead to better working relationships and easier document retention/retrieval while still tying into advanced business processes.
This webinar will explore how technology is enabling AEC firms to embrace a digital workplace to manage complex challenges and customer demands with total accountability, transparency and real-time decision-making.
This webinar will discuss the new tools and technologies that are emerging to help construction teams track and benchmark cost, schedule, progress, people, equipment and other things on the jobsite to help drive efficiency and productivity.
Our expert panel will discuss how the Internet of Things is now finding its way into the construction industry, how project teams are using big data to build profit, reduce risk and deliver better project outcomes and future trends.
In this webinar, attendees will learn how global collaboration produces surprising benefits such as a reduction of carbon footprint, as well as how the concept of ‘Information-led design’ inspired the creation of AECOM's world-class collaboration system.
This webinar explores how design and construction teams are using drones today and how this emerging technology will change the way work is done in the future- from imagery and data collection to mapping, surveys and beyond.
