In an effort to prevent train accidents on a new $2.3-billion, 10-mile-long extension line in San Francisco, the Berryessa-Valley Transportation Authority/Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) team is installing a railroad intrusion-detection system (RIDS) that uses warning devices originally developed for protecting shipping ports from break-ins.
Clarified regulations that went into effect Aug. 29 represent great progress on this integration that will help construction and building operations optimize the benefits of drone technology—but the work still is incomplete.
Technology tools developed over the last handful of years bring some oft-overlooked lifesaving benefits to builders in coastal states. Most platforms in the digital world, from drones to social media, can double as powerful tools for hurricane and disaster preparations.
Unmanned Aerial Systems pilots are flying close to landslide-prone terrain to collect higher-resolution elevation data than traditional aerial imagery can deliver, and they’re doing missions in scant hours—putting near real-time monitoring of dangerous slopes within practical reach.
A research team at the University of Colorado in Boulder is using liquid crystal technology, widely known for its use in smartphones and flat-panel HD televisions, to create a transparent, solid film for windows that could significantly improve energy efficiency in buildings.
In its many studies on the benefits of building information modeling in construction, Dodge Data & Analytics has consistently demonstrated that larger companies are more likely to use BIM and to benefit from it than smaller ones.
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.
This is a webinar for project managers who'd like to liberate themselves from administrative overload! Instead of tips and tricks, this event takes a case study approach to illustrate better, more integrated processes.
In this webinar, ENR will host a discussion among panelists who’ve taken construction project management to the cloud to find out how they got there, and what they learned about making the right choices along the way.
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.
Streamed LIVE from FutureTech 2016 | This webinar will discuss driving innovation in a mature, stable construction industry, and how one must be prepared to think long-term, to be misunderstood from time to time, and how to always consider the unexpected.
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.
Streamed LIVE from FutureTech 2016 | This webinar will present examples of how it solidifies successful pilots in visualization, collaboration and prefabrication on complex projects into standard practices across the corporation.
