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.
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.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced both suppliers and contractors to strengthen their supply chains amid worldwide shortages and logistics nightmares. However, there is some doubt over whether these adaptations will continue once COVID restrictions are lifted. ENR will ask a panel of experts how to ensure supply chain improvements stick in a post-COVID world.
When it comes to project information, email is the letter of today, and has become more critical since the start of the pandemic. Project information management doesn't need to be expensive and clunky. Arup has developed another way, which is simple and cost effective, and brings their project information and critical correspondence into one, central location.
On Demand Having a single platform to integrate the workflows of many different project discipline allows connected projects to stay on track, on time and supported, despite supply chains that have been strained since the pandemic. You’ll learn how connected cloud tools can avoid rework and data duplication, producing major improvements in the engaged owner's workflow.

On Demand This panel will look at several case studies from early users of the Boston Dynamics SPOT robot on jobsites, for everything from regular reality capture to advanced work-progress tracking. With new forms of automation coming to the construction process, contractors are finding clever uses for small, versatile robotics platforms like SPOT.
On Demand Building a Building Information Model should be approached with as much care and forethought as designing and constructing the facility. Our panelists will define and guide best practices that yield truly useful BIM results for the lifecycle, from contract drafting to operations.
As the end of the year approaches, AEC firms are shifting their attention to new opportunities in 2022. They’re looking to grow while dealing with the challenges that come with today’s hybrid workforce, working with disparate systems and creating high-quality proposals to win new businesses. We'll share the results of 500 AEC firms about key priorities, key challenges and how they plan on leveraging technology to grow.
As the number of new renewable energy installations are overtaking the number of traditional fossil-fuel based generating plants being built, how are contractors and consultants changing their business practices to meet the new demand? We'll explore the transition from new ways of working with clients to the changing skills needed for labor to build solar or wind projects instead of coal plants.
ENR will query a panel of worldwide experts to discuss how technology can help better prepare for a changing climate – from AI that predicts risks to our infrastructure posed by flooding, landslides, and other natural disasters to insight tools that calculate carbon emissions and sensors that detect pipe leaks before they turn into water main breaks.
