The American Wood Council and International Code Council have released a joint publication, Mass Timber Buildings and the IBC, which gives an overview of code changes regarding mass timber construction.
The New York City Dept. of Buildings has granted permission to use SpeedCore in New York City. The high-rise lateral-load resisting system of tied dual-plate wall modules field-filled with concrete has the potential to slash superstructure construction time compared to steel frames with reinforced concrete cores.
There is good news for boosters of a modular system of tied dual-plate walls field-filled with concrete—dubbed SpeedCore for its potential to slash superstructure construction time compared to steel frames with reinforced concrete cores.
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.
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.
We'll discuss an integrated CAD and BIM approach to project delivery, which allows engineers to work in a 2D CAD environment to deliver 3D BIM models and high-quality 2D deliverables from the same workflow. Using a 3D model to drive 2D deliverables augments existing plans production process with the best features of 3D modeling: automated rebar detailing, conflict detection, & quantities/geometry reporting.
To deal with an accelerated pace of change, can engineering and construction firms adapt and be agile successful businesses if they continue to run their businesses using a patchwork of non-integrated business systems? During this webinar, we’ll discuss the impending challenges facing the industry and how integrated software is now a must.
Knowing your project status at all times and being able to say with confidence what has been finished, what's next and how you are progressing on the plan is a sure fire way to improve your business. Learn how recent advances in reality capture are being put to work on jobsites to nail down progress and improve company reputations for being on top of things, all the time.
COVID-19 prevented this year’s group of national Top 20 Under 40 winners from meeting in person to share ideas for tackling key construction challenges, but the virtual voices of these visionaries came through loud and clear.
