With the recent opening of the 1,401-ft-tall One Vanderbilt Avenue, New York City’s supertall office building stats are on the rise. The tower is the third tallest in North America, trailing the 1,776-ft-tall One World Trade Center, also in Manhattan, and the 1,453-ft Willis Tower in Chicago.
Construction started last month on the 284-ft-tall mass timber-and-concrete apartment building in Milwaukee—which, if completed as planned in mid-2022, would be the world's tallest hybrid timber tower.
The daring rebuild of the dysfunctional landmark Portland Building, designed by the late Michael Graves and considered to be the building that triggered the postmodern movement in architecture, was so successful that the building team is writing a playbook for the delivery model it used, which it calls collaborative design-build, with progressive contracting.
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.
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.
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.
Get the power of BIM out of the office and job trailer and into the hands of field workers where there’s tremendous untapped potential to harness the model to boost productivity, quality and safety. Using real-world project examples, the panelists will show you how they rolled out technology to craftworkers, fabricators and other field employees with streamlined training and maximum benefit.
Historically, the construction industry has been conservative when it comes to enterprise technology. However, with the fast pace industry disruption that digitalization will bring with technologies, the need for future-proof ERP has never been greater. We'll discuss how to move towards digitalization and how companies can drive true business value from their enterprise software.
As the movement toward LEED and Envision projects grows, owners and contractors alike are prioritizing green best practices for the construction phases of the project life cycle. This webinar will explore those best practices—from recycling materials to minimizing waste to using alternative energy—on projects that have achieved LEED and Envision certification.
With research showing field productivity boosted by 25% and installed project cost reduced by up to 10%, Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) is a successful project management approach based on project thinking with the end in mind, emphasizing construction sequencing in driving upfront planning. Megaproject owners were early adopters of AWP, but more owners now require it before bidding on a project.
Capital projects are incredibly complex and expectations for the project organization have never been higher. Yet, too often project leaders are not empowered with the processes and tools to accurately know what’s happening or to proactively improve project outcomes. In this webinar, we’ll discuss the challenges being faced and the path to project success that can make both you and your organization a champion.
Safety should be at the forefront at every project stage. This webinar will explore ways to go beyond compliance by holistically incorporating safe work practices into a jobsite and—better yet—eliminating hazards during design before they occur. Panelists will address the processes they follow to create a comprehensive safety culture and work environment.
Project success relies on laying the proper groundwork for construction to start, by ensuring the proper budget is set, due diligence is performed to reduce risk and that the best team is assembled. Newsmakers will discuss the key elements in funding, developing and managing a project from beginning to end to ensure not just on-time and on-budget completion, but also that all workers stay injury free.
