A new application turns hard-to-manage physical documentation into a searchable cloud and mobile-enabled database to save time spent searching for operational and achieved facility management documents.
The United States is hungry for concrete. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, in 2014 the U.S. produced 80.5 million tons of Portland cement and 2.2 million tons of masonry cement. Portland cement is a primary ingredient in concrete, and most of the cement produced domestically went to the production of concrete. Though concrete is a sustainable material the amount produced every year results in significant environmental impact, making the development of recycled aggregate sources of dire import.
The new technology that can be used to reduce the power consumption and carbon footprint of new Smart Cities is exciting, but it is also encouraging to see the vast opportunities we have to improve the performance of the myriad buildings in the cities we already occupy.
Autodesk’s cloud service, called Forge, is free for developers for the next 90 days, the company announced at its inaugural conference for application programming interface developers. It also announced new investment in three start-ups.
Technology for true augmented reality—with 3D models and metadata floating before a user’s eyes and mapping to the environment in real time—is still in development. But technology firm Scope AR is trying to get augmented reality into the hands of industry professionals today, providing the tools to build their own AR visualizations.
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.
Streamed LIVE from FutureTech 2016 | This webinar chats with a panel of design, construction and academic experts that will present on recommendations for successfully navigating this period of transformative change.
