When working on big projects, it can be hard to stay on top of which workers are qualified to do what. Luckily, there are now ways to bring training certification data into smarter workforce management tools. During this webinar, ENR will talk with the experts about their experiences tracking training certifications more intelligently.
This webinar reviews the steps of the estimating process and takes a detailed look at developing a thorough construction Scope of Work (SOW). Additionally, attendees will learn reliable sources of cost data and practical ways to check and validate that data to build a better estimate.
Collaboration with digital data is helping the construction industry head-off safety issues that arise from miscommunication and faulty coordination, as well as prevent rework and enhance productivity and quality. During this webinar, we will talk with project managers about how they use connected digital data to help keep their jobsites coordinated, productive and safe.
Stantec is transforming how it delivers projects—moving from unmanaged drawings and data to centralized data management. Join this discussion on the technical drivers that are compelling this top, global firm to standardize on a Common Data Environment, and hear examples of the business results they are seeing—both expected and unexpected.
