In response to devastating floods in the past few weeks from Hurricanes Harvey and Irene in Texas, Louisiana and many areas in the Southeast, the American Society of Civil Engineers’ library has assembled a set of papers and publications that highlight post-flood response and the risks posed by flooding in urban areas, making them free and publicly available to non-members until Dec. 31, 2017.
Successful performance in fire tests of three types of off-the-shelf metal connectors for glue-laminated-timber column-to-beam assemblies will make it easier for designers to get approval for GLT structural systems in buildings up to 85 ft in height, says the Softwood Lumber Board, which sponsored the tests.
Our panel of forward thinkers discuss the future direction of immersion through gaming, VR, AR and mixed-reality in construction, including how it is inspiring next generations of architects, engineers, builders and craftworkers to change the way they approach their work.
This webinar will describe the ways that contractors are merging the two systems, and the digital tools that make that possible, so that Last Planner methods that are part of Lean can add important workflow, crew size, location and resource information to keep the Critical Path Schedule properly updated and keep the long-term goal of on-time completion paramount.
You are cordially invited to an Executive Briefing, which will be broadcast LIVE online from the physical event in Arlington, Virginia! During this briefing, attendees will hear why and how The Ohio State University and Carolinas HealthCare System use and require Building Information Modeling (BIM) project deliverables.
Innovative construction management software systems can provide a foundation for supportive networks and idea exchanges. During this webinar, ENR will convene a panel of design and construction company information systems managers to hear about how they are using such systems to help their firms make creativity bloom.
The new guidebook, entitled “Planning Sustainable Cities: An Infrastructure Based Approach,” provides tools for knitting those individual projects into a seamless and sustainable network. During this webinar, we will ask a panel of academics and industry leaders to discuss the new tool for infrastructure system performance and how to leverage synergies among buildings and other assets to minimize demands on infrastructure.
As projects grow more challenging with compressed schedules and cost pressure, many firms are turning to project collaboration and worksharing systems that improve the coordination of professional teams around the globe. ENR will sit down with engineering managers to learn how they are tapping into the benefits of a distributed workforce, and to hear their advice about implementing such systems.
