The American Institute of Steel Construction’s group reviewing problematic built-up plate girders in San Francisco’s Salesforce Transit Center is considering the girders’ design detail—where the brittle fractures occurred. The team will also look into a similar girder failure at the SoNo Collection mall in Connecticut.
The American Institute of Steel Construction’s virtual steel conference—which replaced AISC’s annual gathering canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic—offered dozens of no-cost online professional development hours to its 9,146 registrants.
The only group in the U.S. and Canada that collects and disseminates lessons from failures, errors, mishaps and safety issues is calling for reports on structural and jobsite hazards arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Corps Chicago District Commander Col. Aaron Reisinger and Walsh Construction Project Manger Tom Caplis detail how convention center will transform into an alternate care facility in days, including upgrade of Hall B mechanical system to produce negative air pressure for care of contagious patients.
As the Army Corps of Engineers planned and built alternate care facilities in Chicago's McCormick Place and Detroit's TCF Center, its public health strategy shifted to using convention centers for COVID-19 patients without severe symptoms rather than just for non-COVID-19 patients to take the strain off hospitals.
The public authority that owns and runs the Salesforce Transit Center in San Francisco forcefully disagrees with the Metropolitan Transportation Commission's independent expert panel that reviewed the 2018 brittle fractures in twin built-up plate girders.
The American Institute of Steel Construction has formed a task force to consider the recommendations made by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission peer review panel, on the fractured flanges in the Salesforce Transit Center, to determine if any changes need to be made to the AISC Steel Specification.
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.
Building solar and wind energy generation efficiently in the field can often be more like manufacturing than construction. But as with every construction job, the work requires careful planning and program management. We'll discuss the software the experts use for every step of the process, from planning to operations to how new manufacturing techniques and robots are helping execute.
Driving innovation is never simple. Infrastructure can be a barrier. But cultural and process challenges can be equally – if not more difficult – to overcome. Sundt Construction will share the lessons they've learned in introducing innovations like drone imagery and analytics – and the impact of innovation to company performance and employee safety and engagement.
Join us for this webinar as Steve Jones, Senior Director at Dodge Data & Analytics presents key discoveries from a new SmartMarket report that reveals current methods of gathering and analyzing data, as well as the potential for leveraging technology to further improve project performance, profitability and competitiveness.
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.
During this webinar, we’ll discuss how working in a collaborative manner with input from agency leadership, employees and stakeholders can successfully create and-roll out entirely new, consistent protocols, supplemental training and hands-on instruction, and pilot programs that allow best practices to thrive and set the stage for positive outcomes.
Case Study: Learn how DocuSign and Procore developed the Best Tech for Construction Execs
Going digital makes your construction business and contract approval process go faster. In this webinar, we’ll share how Procore and DocuSign are helping thousands of construction firms digitize their workflows helping keep their projects on time and on budget. We'll demonstrate how using DocuSign and Procore helps them deliver more agreeable construction projects.
Scope, budget, and schedule: three variables highly sensitive to design changes, measurement mistakes, or miscommunication. But you can improve the accuracy and consistency of measurements, and you can keep stakeholders informed. Layton Construction shares how they use drone technology and other innovations to drive safety, accuracy, and visibility to all stakeholders throughout the construction lifecycle.
Technology that gives managers better visibility about what’s happening on the job site in near real-time, gives them tools to spot and mitigate inefficiencies and risks before they become disruptions or expensive calamities. Project tech specialists will share how technology is helping to improve management’s ability to see what’s going on, while there’s still time for corrections to enhance production, profits, and safety.
As the number of tech solutions grow, the C-Suite must look at both the benefits that new tech might bring to a single project, and also at how the tool integrates with other technologies to increase value and reduce risk. We'll discuss how accurately defining, predicting and measuring the cost/benefits of tech initiatives across complex organizations is a key to controlling costs and ensuring the success of innovation.
