A three-day conference providing demonstrations, presentations and networking by firms inventing, piloting and implementing technologies to address construction’s future left attendees bullish on tech prospects for the construction industry and heading home with ideas to deploy.
Various “thought leaders” in the industry have been trying—some would say hitting their heads against the wall—for at least the 37 years that I have been covering buildings (and likely before that), to use technology to streamline, automate and quicken building design and construction.
In preparation for the launch of its next-generation truck and SUV lines, General Motors embarked on an aggressive program involving renovations and upgrades across their North American production facilities. During this webinar, we will discuss how the team improved collaboration and accountability, and completed designs quickly with fewer errors.
Many technology offerings are designed to help contractors meet requirements on complex projects, because any GC who can’t be sure they are is just waiting for the next “oops” moment to turn profits into losses. During this webinar, we will talk with managers about how they use technology to meet project control requirements—and get a good night’s sleep.
A new study from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has been released! Join this webinar to learn about the new study’s findings, hear how technology has played a key role in these productivity advances, and gain insight into a specific construction company’s path towards productivity gains.
This webinar will explore the human elements of virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and new devices on job sites, as well as how trainers and developers are incorporating critical human interactions in how technologies and devices are deployed and how well they are embraced on site.
During this webinar, we will hear from supervisors and project managers in general contracting and mechanical and civil work about how they get the right flow of concise, consistent and comprehensible performance data from the field, so they can continuously evaluate, adjust and re-balance resources to keep projects on track.
Advances in procurement technology are helping companies increase the number and quality of bidders, drive down costs through greater competition and eliminate many time-consuming manual procurement processes. During this webinar, participants will learn procurement best practices.
Broadcasting LIVE from FutureTech 2018 | Construction firms are turning to machine learning and data analytics to automatically sift through data as it is acquired to recognize trends and patterns, reduce risk and support data-driven decisions. Our panelists will share examples of their progress toward this goal and discuss where they see it heading.
Broadcasting LIVE from FutureTech 2018 | Our panelists’ firms are early adopters of the tools of virtual and augmented reality. For years, they have been devoting sustained resources of their own to establish a foundation for leveraging those tools on jobsites. We will get a report on where they are now, and where they are going with this technology tomorrow.
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.
ENR will call on two top forecasters, asking them to share their views on the market prospects for the industry at midyear, both nationally and regionally. We then will add another layer by asking a leading industry technology strategist about how the year is playing out from a construction technology perspective.
