The industry continues to explore uses for volumetric modular construction, which produces factory-assembled six-sided fully outfitted modules, and hybrid modular construction. How can AEC firms capitalize on these methods and best take advantage of their efficiencies? We'll discuss how to fulfill the promise and avoid the pitfalls of all types of modular construction.
Technological disruption impacts every industry. The construction industry is being radically transformed by emerging technologies at an ever-quickening rate. We’ll introduce you to the transformative technologies that will shape the future of our industry and offer you simple guidance on how to begin the process of technological transformation inside your company.
Discover prefabrication strategies your organization can implement for successful projects, beginning with estimation and sales through the design phase, manufacturing and completion. Clark Pacific discusses how they adopted tech throughout the whole lifecycle of a project to build better with accelerated schedules and reduced costs for their customers.
In heavy construction, the synergy between people, technology and process can determine whether an equipment maintenance program will flourish – or fizzle. We'll discuss how best to achieve buy-in from all levels of the organization, while tracking the most important KPIs – taking equipment uptime to 95% or better through a holistic, proactive approach.
The construction industry is changing how it tracks project progress, budgets, & schedules using new tech that promises to enable near real-time information from the field. We'll talk to those working & evaluating new reality-capture and scheduling technologies, and whether it is time to move away from long-established practices on tracking project progress and finances.
Automation is critical for improved safety, increased efficiency, and easing the challenges caused by a global workforce shortage.
We'll discuss the different stages of autonomy, where the industry is now & the future of an autonomous construction site. Learn how new hardware and software solutions make it easier to enable connected workflows and manage projects remotely, with capabilities that include the wireless transfer of 3D designs and dashboards that show real-time job progress.
What can contractors do today to prepare for tomorrow? The economic impact of COVID-19 has caused contractors of all sizes to reexamine business practices and invest in everything from accounting overhauls to cloud-based collaboration. But where do we go from here? This webinar will consider what strategies contractors are using to plan ahead in this unusual time.
Construction firms trying to prevent the spread of COVID-19 were faced with shutdowns, cautious re-openings and concerns that jobsites could be virus hotspots. San Francisco-based Peacock Construction and representatives from Arup’s New York and Los Angeles offices will explain how they have found opportunity in the pandemic by repurposing a system for startup and handover of complex new facilities.
Prefab and modular construction’s potential to improve quality, safety, speed and workforce efficiency is enticing, but experts warn it can be full of surprises. We will hear from panelists who have learned from experience about the need for the entire team to collaborate from the earliest stage to think through the complexities of creating assemblies offsite and integrating them into the job.
We'll discuss the best-leadership approaches to change, drawing on more than 500 case studies of construction leaders with advice about the right way to use change agents, communicate change, training, measuring adoption, and minimizing and managing change resistance. We'll also discuss practical insight for identifying and developing emerging leaders, based on key human attributes that are significant indicators of future performance.
