By installing a pilot pile for the settling Millennium Tower's troubled foundation repair, Shimmick Construction hopes to prove the efficacy of revised construction methods so that work can continue without triggering accelerated building settlement.
UMass Chan Medical School is betting big on geothermal heating and cooling to slash the greenhouse gas emissions from the newest addition to its Worcester campus, a $325 million research and education complex.
After successfully completing the mind-boggling top-down expansion of the 932,000-sq-ft facility, with its 45-million-lb landmark roof shored safely overhead, the Mortenson-led building team overcame myriad supply chain disruptions caused by COVID-19.
Shimmick Construction successfully completed the 36-in.-dia pilot pile casing installation at San Francisco’s Millennium Tower, proving the efficacy of the initial step of a less-disruptive construction method designed to allow the paused foundation fix to resume.
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
On Demand Building and construction are responsible for 38% of all carbon emissions in the world. This webinar will present the latest strategies, materials and technologies used to create buildings with lower embodied and operational carbon by looking at the new Meyer Memorial Trust headquarters in Portland, Ore.
