Crane-mounted sensor and jobsite intelligence startup Versatile announced on Sept. 14 that it has secured $80 million in Series B funding. This comes on the heels of a $20 million Series A funding round secured in December 2020.
Product demos by startups, networking and venture capital panels brought back a familiar, if masked, sense of collegiality Sept. 1, for demo day of the BuiltWorlds Summit 2021 at Chicago's Westin River North.
Officials and water sector professionals warned of ongoing cybersecurity vulnerabilities in the nation’s water and wastewater utility infrastructure at a Senate hearing on escalating cyber attacks against U.S. utilities and water-management organizations.
After a successful trial of a railcar-mounted robot to drill holes for tunnel cable racks, the MTA is putting together an open bidding process for vendors to further develop a robot drill rig for use in New York City’s subway tunnels.
We'll examine how new project and field management tools are unleashing the true value of the 4D model as it transforms into a construction digital twin connected to real-time project data. Learn how a live construction digital twin will transform workflows such as resource tracking, inspections, and project management through the 4D model context to deliver projects on time and more profitably.
The requirements for project data are evolving. Owners are setting high expectations for documentation, and as BIM is increasingly mandated by both regulators and owners, quality business analysis requires proper data hygiene. Join us for this webinar where experts from across the industry will weigh in on what you need to do to keep up with construction's changing data requirements.
Advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning are giving firms new insights into what can go wrong on their projects. From providing advice on where to allocate resources to identifying real safety risks on jobsites, A.I. advisors are promising to deliver real competitive advantages. Learn how to get past the hype around A.I. and find the benefits of these tools.
Working remotely has been a reality for the past few months. While some companies have transitioned relatively well to the new normal, others have struggled and continue to have lingering doubts and concerns. Join us as we dispel popular myths and misconceptions around construction data in the cloud.
Tight project control and business governance are essential for growth and prosperity. But how do you stitch together your patchwork quilt of systems and tools, maintain the integrity of the system, and drive new working practices—all while running your business in testing times? We'll discuss how to build an integrated construction application ecosystem.
MEP contractors and other small firms’ investments in prefabrication, cloud collaboration, and other digital technologies have positioned them well to spin back up once the economy starts to reopen and recover. These small & agile firms will show how their technology investments let them keep on target through 2020 and rethink business practices that were holding them back.
Combining the advantages of aerial drones and agile mobile robots in complex work environments, you’ll learn how to use Boston Dynamics’ Spot robot to autonomously capture site data in a repeatable path using a 360 camera then send their data to the cloud where it is processed by DroneDeploy to create a comprehensive 360 virtual walkthrough of their project.
Technological disruption impacts every industry. The construction industry is being radically transformed by emerging technologies at an ever-quickening rate. We’ll introduce you to the transformative technologies that will shape the future of our industry and offer you simple guidance on how to begin the process of technological transformation inside your company.
The construction industry is changing how it tracks project progress, budgets, & schedules using new tech that promises to enable near real-time information from the field. We'll talk to those working & evaluating new reality-capture and scheduling technologies, and whether it is time to move away from long-established practices on tracking project progress and finances.
Automation is critical for improved safety, increased efficiency, and easing the challenges caused by a global workforce shortage.
We'll discuss the different stages of autonomy, where the industry is now & the future of an autonomous construction site. Learn how new hardware and software solutions make it easier to enable connected workflows and manage projects remotely, with capabilities that include the wireless transfer of 3D designs and dashboards that show real-time job progress.
