White House seeks comment by March 18 on approaches to extract CO2 from sources and from the air, with $2B for new pipelines. Capture projects have strong critics, but DOE also funds $4M of planned Rio Tinto-Talon Metals nickel mine demo project in Minnesota.
Growing from 50 to 500 employees in three years, the building materials delivery service announced a significant financing increase from its latest funding round amid the company's continued expansion.
The venture capital and technology investment arm of Boston-based contractor and real estate firm Suffolk started a startup accelerator to bring construction technology companies together to expand their networks and raise funding.
On Demand Having a single platform to integrate the workflows of many different project discipline allows connected projects to stay on track, on time and supported, despite supply chains that have been strained since the pandemic. You’ll learn how connected cloud tools can avoid rework and data duplication, producing major improvements in the engaged owner's workflow.
Manage all ENC project data in one integration platform
On Demand This panel will look at several case studies from early users of the Boston Dynamics SPOT robot on jobsites, for everything from regular reality capture to advanced work-progress tracking. With new forms of automation coming to the construction process, contractors are finding clever uses for small, versatile robotics platforms like SPOT.
On Demand Building a Building Information Model should be approached with as much care and forethought as designing and constructing the facility. Our panelists will define and guide best practices that yield truly useful BIM results for the lifecycle, from contract drafting to operations.
On Demand There’s always been a lot of focus on the benefits of aligning your CPM, 90-day, and weekly lookahead schedules. But on today’s complex capital projects, how do you go about it? By using the right technology and knowledge-based techniques. Join us for this webinar to explore best practices for finding and applying today’s most advanced planning and scheduling technology, all to achieve better project certainty for better outcomes every step of the way.
On Demand With a big federal infrastructure spend expected sometime in the next year, contractors, engineers and other firms may find that some state and federal owners are asking for more digital-focused bid packages. ENR will talk to industry firms and experts on how some DOTs and agencies are moving toward better digital project management, and how to be ready to bid on new work.
On Demand AEC project teams create information of many data types, various formats and from a range of applications. HNTB and HDR share how they aggregate this data to improve the way they work internally, while also improving the way they communicate project status with other project stakeholders. Leading firms will show how GIS, BIM, CAD, LiDAR and other information sources are combined to improve project delivery across design, construction and owner/operator workflows.
On Demand Good companies give their people good tools to work with....but in a competitive job market, how can you make sure your best prospects get the message and understand that your technology is more than flashy window dressing and that it enriches the work-life of its users and truly runs deep? We'll hear how companies can leverage the technology they have not only to work better, but to attract top talent into their ranks as well.
On Demand Join Thompson Turner Construction and Skyward as we discuss what it takes to adopt drones at your company. As a bonus, we’ll look at a real-world construction site and show you how to plan a drone flight, obtain fast access to controlled airspace, fly a mission, and create high-quality maps and models — all from the Skyward platform.
On Demand A robust digital twin created during design and construction can be used by owners of major developments for everything from building operations to optimizing systems’ use. This webinar will show how owners and facilities managers put their digital twins to work after handover. Additionally, you'll learn how designers and contractors gather data and make it useful during the construction process.
On Demand Today’s construction industry is undergoing a digital transformation. However, in an industry that has traditionally looked at technology as yet another cost to control rather than as a strategic investment, this type of initiative brings with it not only many challenges, but several opportunities as well. Join InEight’s conversation with Graham Construction about their digital transformation journey.
