The Texas Dept. of Transportation has suspended design work on Corpus Christi’s Harbor Bridge pending a safety review of plans prepared by FIGG Bridge Group, one of the firms faulted by the National Transportation Safety Board for last year’s deadly pedestrian bridge collapse at Florida International University.
The rising frequency of extreme weather events has created new demands to build or adapt buildings to deliver superior performance over a widening range of conditions. This webinar will discuss how to prepare for the next extreme weather event by transitioning to more resilient building materials, systems and designs, and by ensuring critical systems maintain functionality when disaster strikes.
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.
From a new Panama Canal to sea-level rise to near-limitless cloud storage to a rumored WSP-AECOM design mega-merger, the last 10 years had big industry impacts. What's ahead for firms, owners and professionals?
