Virtual reality, long seen as a presentation tool for marketing, is being used more for actual BIM review and commenting.Panelists will discuss how they use virtual reality systems to perform BIM walkthroughs, make notes and annotations and even generate RFIs. We will explore how collaborating with others in the same virtual space—even thousands of miles apart—can offer value to any job, pandemic or not.
Autonomous Vehicles will be computers on wheels, drastically impacting traditional vehicle development processes. The future success of carmakers depends on autonomous driving and inclusion in mobility-as-a-service offerings. You'll learn more about closed-loop vehicle development and digitalization throughout the supply chain: from chip, through system and vehicle, up to city level mobility systems.

Ensuring that the right data is accessible to all parties involved in a project can aid in the quality, cost and overall project execution. Hexagon PPM introduces Project Collaboration: a web-based, role/rules-driven, data-centric collaboration solution that can be accessed from any place by multiple parties while controlling the privacy of information and managing all project information.
Like every profession, the construction industry was upended by the COVID-19 pandemic, and practices of temperature monitoring, PPE usage and social distancing were adopted as some work continued. We'll discuss how construction estimates can be built to account for changes in labor and equipment due to COVID-19 and what impacts the use of social distancing could have on construction project timeline.
Rumor is that owners typically have a 10,000-foot view of their capital projects, seeing things only at a high level with minimal detail. But with advancements in today’s cloud-based capital project software, the view from above is giving owners more control than ever before. We’ll discuss how cloud technology has sharpened the owner’s view of the entire project life cycle, yielding better project outcomes for all.
Most in construction know the obstacles to innovation. Fears of failure and liability, resistant clients, reluctant building officials and discomfort about change are just some of the difficulties of being first. In this newsmaker panel, change-makers will offer ways to find a path through the innovation maze. Joining the group to share insights is a recent ENR Award of Excellence winner.
Newsmakers will explore how contractors and engineers can create a built environment that uses energy more efficiently, emits less carbon, produces less waste and creates more resilient buildings, roads, transit systems and utilities. Considering new techniques, technologies and with plenty of imagination, the group will envision how to build a better future for all.
During this webinar, newsmakers will talk about what they have learned about the dynamics of human error, organizational failure, preventive teamwork and balancing of competing interests in recovering from calamities. They'll describe how to build a foundation of data and interpersonal cooperation that can head off possible failures and bounce back quickly when they occur.
The impact of COVID-19 on the construction sector workplace illustrates how quickly disruption can occur. Newsmakers will discuss how employers are meeting new challenges that include crisis management and workforce recovery and rebuilding, how knowledge is being managed and transferred, recruiting and developing next generation talent and why diversity and inclusion not only matter but are core to growth.
