Connect, Content-Enabled, Constructible... The Three C’s of the future; Construction 4.0
More has changed in the construction industry in the last three years than the prior 20. Is your organization ready? Join us as we explore Construction 4.0 – the reality of connecting the owner and contractor, the field to the office, and the physical aspects of a project to the digital side of the project.
Today’s leading design project managers, engineering managers, and BIM managers are leveraging a wide array of new digital strategies to more easily deliver projects on time, in budget, and according to specifications. A panel of practicing experts will discuss key digital strategies that helped them stay on schedule, avoid risk and rework, and drive better project outcomes.
Construction-specific solutions improve planning accuracy, expose inefficiencies through visualization of problem areas, & provide documentation to support or justify change order requests and construction claims. Learn how CMiC’s Mobile Crew Time (MCT), a mobile time tracking solution with automated time-in/time-out data capture capabilities and RFID technology enabled features, can help!
Adverse and unpredictable weather conditions can wreak havoc on the ability to deliver construction projects on time and on budget. However, weather risk solutions are being developed and delivered to protect project income and lead to more predictable profit margins. Join this engaging discussion about deploying parametric weather solutions to balance risk and achieve better project outcomes.
Change will happen throughout the course of every project. It's our ability to manage scope change that helps projects come in on schedule and within budget. We'll look at the benefits of effective change control, key contributors to change, and review proper processes and procedures for proactive change control with the goal of generating awareness of best practices and providing actionable insights.
The insurance market for contractors continues to evolve with specific coverages seeing difficult times for rates and capacity. Worldwide capacity for underwriting construction risk remains a challenge. We'll discuss best practices that are driving favorable market responses along with alternative risk financing techniques that contractors are using to better finance losses and control rate impacts.
Many construction projects go over budget and off schedule because their office and field teams are looking at different data. But when contractors run their business applications in a connected cloud, they can easily share data. Three contractors will share how connected cloud technology is helping them make better business decisions that are leading to more profitable operations and growth.
Even with a poor track record for on-time, on-budget completion, cost estimating and project planning for CAPEX projects over the last half century has remained virtually unchanged. But thanks to the advent of artificial intelligence (AI), those processes are undergoing a transformation. During this webinar, you’ll learn how AI is now being used to proactively guide and validate the entire project planning process.
The National Transportation Safety Board’s Oct. 8 release of documents related to its FIU bridge collapse investigation raises questions but provides no definitive conclusions about why the partially built structure suddenly crashed to the ground on March 15, 2018, killing six.
