The Knock-on Effects of Construction Technology Adoption

With new technology adoption accelerating, the brain work of evaluating the hidden risks and unintended consequences of implementing new systems is a large task that few contractors are prepared to handle well. But it is exactly what Rose Hoyle, the operations manager for strategic risk engineering at insurance giant AXA XL, thinks about every day. She will talk about how she and her team evaluate the benefits — and knock-on consequences — of implementing new construction technologies, and tell us how they push past the sales pitches to really think things through.

Panel: The Human Side of Digital Transformation

DPR Construction's East and West Coast Innovation Leaders team up to describe how they foster an internal innovation culture while simultaneously coping with a flood of outside vendors with demos and pitches. Their challenge is to cut through the noise and match solutions to actual problems, without losing the human touch that keeps talented innovators and promising startups engaged. Also, Tomislav Zigo, Clayco's VP for CDC, will share lessons learned by his team as they have traveled the path of digital transformation, and especially their need to keep the human aspects of technology adoption firmly in mind.

Digital Twin Models & AI for Owners: Managing Construction of a Three-Million Sq Ft., 18-building Campus

A CM's perspective on using digital twin models and artificial intelligence to manage construction of one of the largest construction projects under way in the U.S. Mahoney will share lessons learned integrating both above and below ground BIM and frequent reality capture plus schedule to track construction progress inside and outside of each of 18 buildings on a 72-acre site. A visual command center was created to help advance development of the software organizing tool, Reconstruct, and integrate each reality model with its corresponding BIM and schedule, and then tie all of the resulting digital twins to give facility stakeholders a 3D timeline on all of the work in progress. Instant visual insights guide the project team’s efforts in reviewing work against plan and provide owner with transparency on progress and quality to resolve issues before they impacted cost and schedule.

Demo: Now See This

Live demo by David Alpert, with Rotimi Seriki, to show how they are using AR to view designs in full scale on-site before construction, eliminating costly misunderstandings. The value extends beyond the project team, allowing planners and community members to review projects on site before approval. Designers and builders can import 3D models quickly into AR and then into a headset or smartphone in one click. With headsets, such as the Magic Leap, AR models can be viewed at any scale, from tabletop to full size, overlaid and georeferenced on site.
