Generative design is being used by the Quebec Wood Export Bureau and VIATechnik to deliver purpose-designed relief structures designed for sites as well as mission needs for COVID-19 health care, first responders and other disaster needs.
Dam owners, state and local authorities must do a better job of understanding the history of the dams in their inventory as well as preparing for ice runs that could destroy dams like Nebraska's Spencer Dam, which collapsed under the weight of heavy rain combined with cold temperatures and frozen ground last spring.
Construction in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Wisconsin is seen as essential infrastructure, so work continues on most sites in those states. Minnesota, Kentucky, Missouri and Kansas's orders broadly exempt outdoor activities. Michigan's order includes public works construction as essential.
Construction workers and site supervisors will get training for COVID-19 protection, the latest infectious disease for which the industry is ill-prepared, says NY Environmental Contractors Association chairman Morris Napolitano.
During this webinar, we’ll discuss how working in a collaborative manner with input from agency leadership, employees and stakeholders can successfully create and-roll out entirely new, consistent protocols, supplemental training and hands-on instruction, and pilot programs that allow best practices to thrive and set the stage for positive outcomes.
No matter how well-managed the project is inside the gate, the public space outside marks a dangerous frontier of risks and liability through which workers, materials and equipment constantly pass. During this webinar, we will talk with site safety managers about how they manage the risk, and what technologies are available to help.

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.
A safe and hazard-free jobsite is the goal to which every contractor should subscribe. Regardless of how well-developed the processes in place are, efficiency and redundancy are common when processes are manual and the field isn’t directly integrated with the back office ERP. Join our panel of experts as they share their challenges and results from digitizing and integrating their safety inspections and audits.
Safety should be at the forefront at every project stage. This webinar will explore ways to go beyond compliance by holistically incorporating safe work practices into a jobsite and—better yet—eliminating hazards during design before they occur. Panelists will address the processes they follow to create a comprehensive safety culture and work environment.
The challenges of keeping jobsites safe and projects on schedule are perennial issues in construction, and a disruptive development like a viral pandemic emphasizes that reality.
