Construction started last month on the 284-ft-tall mass timber-and-concrete apartment building in Milwaukee—which, if completed as planned in mid-2022, would be the world's tallest hybrid timber tower.
The daring rebuild of the dysfunctional landmark Portland Building, designed by the late Michael Graves and considered to be the building that triggered the postmodern movement in architecture, was so successful that the building team is writing a playbook for the delivery model it used, which it calls collaborative design-build, with progressive contracting.
Real Estate Opportunity Investments has proposed building Burlington Dream, a mixed-use project, on a 26-acre site on the Delaware River that was formerly the site of a U.S. Pipe & Foundry plant, as well as the McNeal mansion.
With the lengthy and complex permitting and approval process complete and almost all the other details worked out, construction could begin in mid-November on the estimated $100-million fix for San Francisco's 645-ft-tall Millennium Tower, which has settled more than 17 in. since its completion in 2009.
How leading firms drive higher margins with better data-driven decision making
What if you had a way to understand your profit margin potential BEFORE you started a project? Maybe even before you generated a proposal to pursue a project. During this webinar, leading firms are beginning to see the value in data that already exists within their organization to help them make better informed, data-driven decisions.
In this webcast, leading contractors share strategies and technologies they have adopted to cut costs and downtime through a more automated, proactive approach to preventive maintenance. These experts will also discuss how they link maintenance, scheduling/dispatching and field management workflows to optimize how they deploy, track, move and maintain their fleets.
Both public outreach during a project and crisis management when something goes badly wrong requires communication with the public. What are the strategies for each? What are the similarities? What are the differences? In this webinar, industry insiders will discuss keys to forming a communication structure during the public outreach phase of a project.
Email is the default method of day-to-day communication, meaning the bulk of project information is buried in emails, 'locked' inside individual inboxes. This makes email critical in not only preventing disputes but reducing businesses’ overall risk exposure. We'll discuss the pitfalls construction companies in the US fall into when it comes to disputes, and how email management can help avoid these legal disputes.
Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) is being touted by many as “next-generation project planning” – and for good reason. AWP is equally relevant to both owner and contractor organizations, driving a more collaborative and transparent approach to executing projects. This webinar details how organizations can excel at AWP-driven projects to ensure more on-time, on-budget project successes.
Legacy work processes and aging technology won’t cut it in today’s rapidly evolving project delivery landscape, and understanding the trends driving growth can better prepare you and your team for successful project delivery. During this webinar, we'll identify the top emerging trends in project delivery and discuss key strategies project leaders need to take to stay ahead of the curve.
Imagine if you and your team could create a model to predict profit fade or had access to real-time project reporting or could provide PMs direct access to data at the end of their fingertips? You'll learn changes your organization can make to take your project review status meetings to the next level, and hear best practices from a panel of contractors that have made changes to their processes.
As remote work becomes the new normal, today’s top design project leaders are adopting new digital strategies to keep their teams connected to information and each other. Join this webinar to hear ENR talk with a panel of practicing experts from small and mid-size teams on how they are overcoming remote work challenges to deliver projects faster, and with less risk and rework.
During this webinar, newsmakers will talk about what they have learned about the dynamics of human error, organizational failure, preventive teamwork and balancing of competing interests in recovering from calamities. They'll describe how to build a foundation of data and interpersonal cooperation that can head off possible failures and bounce back quickly when they occur.
Most in construction know the obstacles to innovation. Fears of failure and liability, resistant clients, reluctant building officials and discomfort about change are just some of the difficulties of being first. In this newsmaker panel, change-makers will offer ways to find a path through the innovation maze. Joining the group to share insights is a recent ENR Award of Excellence winner.
Florida Dept. of Transportation investigators are assessing damage to the Pensacola Bay Bridge, which sustained multiple impacts from two construction barges unmoored by Hurricane Sally’s storm-driven waves on Sept. 15.
