Code-based earthquake engineering is on the verge of getting simpler, thanks to the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program’s recommendation to replace the traditional seismic hazards maps with an improved seismic hazards database.
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.
Rumor is that owners typically have a 10,000-foot view of their capital projects, seeing things only at a high level with minimal detail. But with advancements in today’s cloud-based capital project software, the view from above is giving owners more control than ever before. We’ll discuss how cloud technology has sharpened the owner’s view of the entire project life cycle, yielding better project outcomes for all.
Like every profession, the construction industry was upended by the COVID-19 pandemic, and practices of temperature monitoring, PPE usage and social distancing were adopted as some work continued. We'll discuss how construction estimates can be built to account for changes in labor and equipment due to COVID-19 and what impacts the use of social distancing could have on construction project timeline.
Ensuring that the right data is accessible to all parties involved in a project can aid in the quality, cost and overall project execution. Hexagon PPM introduces Project Collaboration: a web-based, role/rules-driven, data-centric collaboration solution that can be accessed from any place by multiple parties while controlling the privacy of information and managing all project information.
