New study says that union construction projects are similar in cost to non-union projects because higher union labor costs are offset by savings in other project components such as materials and safety, but critics point to prevailing wage laws that may have skewed its findings.
Engineering and construction projects are plagued by systemic coordination and communication challenges - and delivery teams get hit especially hard. Find out how to coordinate your office and field teams to optimize resources and mitigate risks across all your projects.
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.
ON DEMAND: ENR will talk to some of the experts in how best to navigate the increasingly digital world of federal and state projects, and work effectively in a more collaborative data-management environment.
Join our experts as they detail how construction companies can implement best practices to their projects to ensure they’re delivered on-time, on-budget and why offering facilities/service management contracts on the assets they build, can provide more stable and repeatable revenue streams.
As we harness the power of data analytics to arm construction professionals with the best possible information to build a project, this group of panelists will share thoughts on how disciplined use of data analytics can drive process improvements, and what skill sets construction professionals should look to acquire in order to best leverage these new tools. By addressing people, process and technology, the panel will cover the major pillars needed to prepare construction for a data-driven future.
On Demand Learn how these designers and contractors are using new workflows to make better projects with a better understanding of field conditions thanks to GIS information used in both design and preconstruction.
