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.
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.
As pressure mounts on coal-and natural-gas-fired power plants—as well as cement kilns—to reduce CO2 emissions, researchers are looking to not only capture and store those emissions but also to convert CO2 into marketable products.
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.
A three-day conference providing demonstrations, presentations and networking by firms inventing, piloting and implementing technologies to address construction’s future left attendees bullish on tech prospects for the construction industry and heading home with ideas to deploy.
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.
