Few firms in the risk-averse world of commercial contracting are willing to invest heavily in developing their own project-delivery software and even fewer opt to share those innovations with peers and competitors.
ENR sat down with Martin Fischer, the director of Stanford University’s Center for Integrated Facilities Engineering, to get his assessment of gains being made for increasing construction productivity through virtual design and construction.
For 20 years, contractors and architects have been increasing their use of building information modeling to reduce conflicts, provide comprehensive material takeoffs and deliver beautiful 3D renderings for improved design and construction of buildings. But mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineers have been stuck in 2D.
Geospatial Media and Communications, an India-based market research firm, released a market report on August 2 about the state of Geospatial and BIM use in the construction industry and linking it to the construction economy as a whole
During this webinar, industry practitioners will share how their project workflows are integrating new capabilities for information exchange with data-rich construction models to reduce risk, increase productivity and improve real-time decisions.
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.
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.
Arch dams, classically curved monoliths situated in narrow valleys, are not as common as other types of dams, such as embankment dams and gravity dams. ENR takes a look at some of the biggest arch dams in the world, both completed and under construction.
