Telematics, wearables, online collaboration, 3D model management tools and the ever-evolving ways contractors collect and use data took center stage in the first day of ENR's all-virtual FutureTech construction technology conference.
The premise of a digital twin has become confused in an engineering and construction world with several levels of analysis and approval. How best does a fully digital representation of what will be a physical building or infrastructure asset illuminate its construction process? Is it really as easy as seeing how an exhaust port that goes right to a vessel's main reactor might be a problem?
25 British architecture firms have written a letter to Autodesk asking for more development of its Revit design software platform, citing license costs that have increased 70% over the last five years.
Rail dispatch control centers are dominated by two-tier theaters with video walls and multiple monitors. What if augmented reality could eliminate all of that hardware and crowding? Ross & Baruzzini are studying how that might be accomplished.
We’ll hear from the team that has set the standard in building construction’s most powerful analytics platform, and will break down the current state of AI and data in construction and look at what technology contractors should be investing in today to ensure better outcomes tomorrow. This webinar is the ultimate primer for any contractor looking to be on the winning side of technology.
We'll address how forecasters see construction markets developing in 2020. Top forecasters will share their views on the market prospects for the industry both nationally and regionally. We will also hear from a leading industry technology strategist about how they envision the year from a construction technology perspective.
Get the power of BIM out of the office and job trailer and into the hands of field workers where there’s tremendous untapped potential to harness the model to boost productivity, quality and safety. Using real-world project examples, the panelists will show you how they rolled out technology to craftworkers, fabricators and other field employees with streamlined training and maximum benefit.
In this webinar, Italo Cruz, Senior Construction Technology Specialist at CORE, will discuss how the company’s investments in drones and drone data transformed key construction workflows and helped the ENR 400 company enhance operational excellence. He will also discuss the metrics the firm uses to evaluate its technology investments and its future goals.
Planners are touting digital models as a way to test different scenarios in the virtual world. Some “digital twin” users want comprehensive virtual platforms that incorporate real-time data collected from major infrastructure systems within the real city, which then helps city agencies optimize those systems. We’ll discuss how digital twins can help infrastructure decision-makers optimize their assets.
Historically, the construction industry has been conservative when it comes to enterprise technology. However, with the fast pace industry disruption that digitalization will bring with technologies, the need for future-proof ERP has never been greater. We'll discuss how to move towards digitalization and how companies can drive true business value from their enterprise software.
This webinar will address how the markets are playing out in 2020 amid the COVID-19 Crisis. Top forecasters will share their views on the market prospects for the industry at midyear, both nationally & regionally, in the midst of these unique challenges. We'll also chat with a leading industry technology strategist about how the year is playing out from a construction technology perspective.
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.
Tight project control and business governance are essential for growth and prosperity. But how do you stitch together your patchwork quilt of systems and tools, maintain the integrity of the system, and drive new working practices—all while running your business in testing times? We'll discuss how to build an integrated construction application ecosystem.
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.
