When the COVID-19 pandemic first spread across the U.S. earlier this year, construction sites saw a raft of new safety procedures to ensure essential work could continue without casually spreading the virus.
A team of New Zealand-based software designers that brought digital 3D modeling to engineering geotechnics less than two years ago recently launched an upgrade to their software. It is now being used on some major projects, including the U.K.’s multibillion-dollar London-Birmingham high speed railroad (HS2).
Hawaiian Dredging has used manual processes to track the productivity of the cranes on its jobsites in the past, but a deployment of Versatile's CraneView sensor package is automating some of that tedious and difficult work.
At its first all-virtual Autodesk University conference, software vendor Autodesk announced three new construction cloud products, a partnership for electrical design and a new digital twin offering for owners and operators.
In an effort to create a common environment for design visualizations across multiple platforms, Autodesk has partnered with Nvidia to bring its broad suite of design software to Nvidia Omniverse, a recently launched collaborative 3D environment that allows users of different software to see their 3D designs in one shared online space.
SoFi Stadium's digital twin from Willow consolidates 3.1 million sq ft of stadium and all its moving parts into a 16GB graphical and relational model that can be accessed from an iPad and analyzed by stadium management for optimizing building operations.
This webinar will provide an overview of how data organization can solve some of today’s biggest challenges in the construction industry. Data can boost productivity, collaboration and reduce rework. Companies who have successfully built a data-centric foundation will discuss how to improve data collection and analysis for the best outcomes.
Email is the default method of day-to-day communication, meaning the bulk of project information is buried in emails, 'locked' inside individual inboxes. This makes email critical in not only preventing disputes but reducing businesses’ overall risk exposure. We'll discuss the pitfalls construction companies in the US fall into when it comes to disputes, and how email management can help avoid these legal disputes.
Buildings account for nearly 40 percent of annual global CO2 emissions due in part to the use of Fossil fuels. Strategic Electrification is an alternate approach that uses electric-powered technologies to increase energy efficiency, leading to cost optimization, and reduced pollution. During this webinar, you'll hear from industry professionals whom have been successful in implementing energy-efficient systems.
We'll address how forecasters see construction markets developing in 2020. Top forecasters will share their views on the market prospects for the industry both nationally and regionally. We will also hear from a leading industry technology strategist about how they envision the year from a construction technology perspective.

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.
With over five years of experience as a UAV pilot, P Agnes Construction Project Manager Ian Larson shares insights and practical examples about using drones for take-offs, the bidding process, site documentation, subcontractor tracking and client communication in both horizontal site and vertical building methods. Join us for this informative webinar.
Companies early in the process of creating a drone program have a lot of questions and concerns from different business groups. Discover how Moss & Associates, a national construction management company, effectively collaborated between their employees, executives, and other business groups to develop the company’s first drone program.
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.
In this webinar, Italo Cruz, Senior Construction Technology Specialist at CORE, will discuss how the company’s investments in drones and drone data transformed key construction workflows and helped the ENR 400 company enhance operational excellence. He will also discuss the metrics the firm uses to evaluate its technology investments and its future goals.
