Six prefabricated modules forming an 80,000-sq-ft new concourse have rolled into place at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Delivered on self-propelled modular transporters between Aug. 26 and Sept. 9, they are a first of their kind for North American airports.
San Francisco Dept. of Building Inspection advises the Millennium Tower homeowners association to “refrain from resuming” the pile foundation retrofit for the settling 645-ft-tall condominium until a new approach to the fix is reviewed by the city.
Since Haiti’s magnitude-7.2-earthquake on Aug. 14, which struck the underserved Tiburon Peninsula, Build Health International has marshalled its staff, supporters and resources in Haiti and the U.S., where it is based, to help.
Construction management software is a wide-ranging term representing many different types of software and products. Without transparency from providers, contractors can waste both time and money on the wrong solution. During this webinar, we'll discuss the 5 insights that contractors must consider when looking for the best-fit in a solutions provider.
As civil projects become larger and more complex, the need for easier data access, efficiency of data collection and the right data analysis tools have become imperative to teams’ success. This webinar will dive into optimizing project resources when they’re spread across large spatial regions, leveraging field mobility to improve project processes, and more.
The industry continues to explore uses for volumetric modular construction, which produces factory-assembled six-sided fully outfitted modules, and hybrid modular construction. How can AEC firms capitalize on these methods and best take advantage of their efficiencies? We'll discuss how to fulfill the promise and avoid the pitfalls of all types of modular construction.
Discover prefabrication strategies your organization can implement for successful projects, beginning with estimation and sales through the design phase, manufacturing and completion. Clark Pacific discusses how they adopted tech throughout the whole lifecycle of a project to build better with accelerated schedules and reduced costs for their customers.
Constructible BrIM models and digital as-builts are already widely used in Europe and needn’t be a pipeline dream in the US. Early collaboration and today's tech will allow constructible design and connect all disciplines, creating a seamless digital flow of information throughout the bridge project, giving bridge designers, contractors and DOTs the edge.
As infrastructure engineering and project delivery become more complex, the need to adopt new methods become more urgent. We'll discuss how technology can help engineering teams overcome Digital Twin implementation challenges, by adopting a progressive Virtual Twin approach delivering significant efficiency while minimizing adoption challenges.
Prefab and modular construction’s potential to improve quality, safety, speed and workforce efficiency is enticing, but full of surprises. We'll hear from those who have learned from experience about the need for the entire team to collaborate from the earliest stage to think through the complexities of creating assemblies offsite and integrating them into the job.
We'll discuss the best-leadership approaches to change, drawing on more than 500 case studies of construction leaders with advice about the right way to use change agents, communicate change, training, measuring adoption, and minimizing and managing change resistance. We'll also discuss practical insight for identifying and developing emerging leaders.
Commitment, collaboration, communication and compromise
