With a climb seen in U.S. construction activity and a sense that equipment makers may finally have absorbed price hikes from decades of emissions-compliance upgrades, activity was brisk at the World of Concrete show, held in Las Vegas on Jan. 23-26.
A construction tech company that printed the walls of a 350-sq-ft “tiny house” in 48 hours in Austin, Texas, in March is now partnered with a nonprofit that aims to start printing walls for 800-sq-ft homes in El Salvador—in 24 hours for each—by the end of the year.
Driven by rising construction activity, an opinion survey of contractors, fleet managers, equipment dealers and rental shops is showing a generally positive outlook for the U.S. construction equipment market in the next year.
A New York company and two utilities have a cost-effective solution to the nation’s aging underground infrastructure: a robot that crawls through cast-iron natural-gas pipelines and replaces their deteriorating joints, effectively renewing the pipes for up to 50 years.
This webinar will take a transparent look at the use of Brasfield & Gorrie, LLC's, laser scanning implementation as well as merging it with other reality capture technology, and is geared toward those using laser scanning along with anyone considering other forms of reality capture technology.
As with any new technology, drones also introduce new risks when not managed well. During this webinar, Tim Conroy of DPR Construction will share his experience of creating a drone program and establishing safety standards and risk-mitigation procedures—all while operating at maximum efficiency.
Drones are a great asset to many projects, but they also add another layer of complexity beyond juggling contractors, scheduling delays, permits, and inspections. Learn best practices in managing and scaling your drone program from the experts, as well as lessons learned while expanding a drone program expansion.
Today’s drones help project managers, superintendents, and virtual design & construction (VDC) teams build instant ROI with aerial photos, maps, and 3D models. Attend this webinar to hear from industry experts leading the charge to bring drones to construction, and learn how you can leverage drones on your job sites.
With fully autonomous construction equipment on the horizon and semi-autonomous equipment already at work on jobsites, ENR will talk to some of the early adopters, technology providers, and industry experts about autonomous equipment, sensor-heavy jobsites and evaluating the benefits and challenges of these new technologies.
The market is strong and growing steadily, but contractors worry that the work may outstrip the industry’s capacity to deliver due to workforce shortages and materials supply delays in the wake of tariffs.
