The pandemic has been a catalyst for business innovations to balance needs to move forward, while protecting health and safety. Companies had to improvise to stay connected with their teams and business development pipelines. We'll discuss that while success still comes down to focusing on people, process and tech, the lever for strategic innovation and growth through these times of disruption is now, more than ever, operational intelligence & data.
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.
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.
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.
Constructible BrIM models and digital as-builts are already widely used in Europe and, during this webinar, we’ll explore how they needn’t be a pipeline dream in the US. Early collaboration and continuous digital dataflow throughout the project lifecycle can give bridge designers, contractors and DOTs the edge. In fact, technology available today will allow constructible design and connect all disciplines, creating a seamless digital flow of information throughout the bridge project.
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.
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.
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.
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.
