Mobile technology and cloud services are improving productivity on job sites by sharpening the tools managers use to understand the financial impacts of decisions and changes. Join us for this webinar to hear from project managers in the field who will tell us how they are using cloud services and mobile technologies today to reach better outcomes, control costs and stay on—or even ahead—of schedule.
The rising frequency of extreme weather events has created new demands to build or adapt buildings to deliver superior performance over a widening range of conditions. This webinar will discuss how to prepare for the next extreme weather event by transitioning to more resilient building materials, systems and designs, and by ensuring critical systems maintain functionality when disaster strikes.
Succeeding with Lean Construction’s systematic approach to reducing waste, rework and delay requires the implementation of a set of inter-related production management policies. Getting the right technology is key, but without implementing the right policies, the hoped for results won’t be achieved. In the webinar, the experts who understand Lean Construction will share their tips for setting it up and doing it right.
Discover your firm’s super power — the power to quickly create 3D experiences in real-time from your design files for VR/AR devices, using tools you probably already have, or can easily acquire.
