Teams are working behind the scenes on longer-lead time COVID-19 retrofits and conversions for hospitals, hotels and dormitories. Many of these are aimed at increasing the supply of coronavirus-patient intensive care units and airborne infection isolation rooms to protect health-care workers.
Design professionals are mobilizing to provide advice and guidance during the COVID-19 pandemic. Health care facility practitioners are also warning officials that haste in creating temporary treatment centers can create unintended negative consequences.
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 process of modeling even simple bridges can become tedious and error prone after engineers complete several design and analysis iterations. Engineers and drafters are faced with analysis coordination, complex diaphragm placements, reinforcement detailing, and clash detection. Join our webinar to learn how 3D modeling of common bridges can help you unlock greater project design efficiencies on your next project.
Discover your firm’s super power — the power to quickly create 3D experiences in real-time from your design files for VR/AR devices, using tools you probably already have, or can easily acquire. We'll talk to field supervisors putting VR and AR to work to enhance project understanding, and business strategists with their eyes on advanced visualizations that will impact their company’s future.
Your world is changing. Projects are becoming more complex, new paradigms of work are emerging, and expectations are higher than ever to deliver top-quality projects ahead of schedule and under budget. ENR will talk with a panel of practicing design project leaders about new industry challenges and the solutions that they leveraged to remain competitive and drive better project outcomes.
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.
As bridge designs become more complex, engineering teams face many challenges with limited project budgets and tight deadlines. Join us for an exclusive webinar as we share details of a prominent bridge design project executed by Arup. Discover how they delivered a fabulous bridge design on-time without jeopardizing quality. We’ll also share the best practices they learned from this one-of-a-kind project.
