Educating staff about not opening themselves up to spearphishing and hundreds of other people-based threats, and also making sure that software and the equipment employees use that's connected to the 'net means today's construction IT departments must fight two very different security wars.
U.S. Army Corp. of Engineers' researchers, leading a team that recently completed the 3D printing of 9.5-ft-tall reinforced concrete walls for a 32-ft x 16-ft deployable barracks, are setting their sights on a future project--3D printing of concrete roof beams--even before they have put the precast concrete lid on the printed walls.
As a younger cohort coming up with expectations about automation, data access and connectivity in their lives, the Top 20 had some pointed thoughts about the industry’s relatively slow adoption of new technology.
Pushing the limits of additive-manufacturing processes, 3D-printing startup Branch Technology recently completed installation of a bandshell in Nashville, Tenn., that it says is the largest 3D-printed structure in the world.
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.
During this webinar, we will discuss how today’s project and enterprise management systems can support that understanding by analyzing the digital DNA of past success. The insights mean resources can evolve, and firms can deliver even more winning solutions to clients.
The increasing reliance of long term initiatives on new technologies is raising the question of, “How do you ensure that systems and data delivered at the start of the project can survive technology changes over the life of the project and asset?” Experts will discuss the experience facing these challenges to hear what they are doing now to future-proof their digital project data for the long haul.
During this webinar, experts will weigh in on making the choice of a technically-focused career path, or the management track for engineers and construction professionals. We will discuss how employees can assess skills and motivation to pick the right path, and more!
Digital signatures have significantly changed in recent years precisely to fit the workflow of architects, engineers and construction companies for everything from project submittals to drawings and RFIs. This webinar will sit down with experts in the industry about how they are using digital signatures on a marquee project as well as other customer success stories.
To better evaluate construction ERP alternatives, companies are advised to work with those users early and get granular about the exact tools and functions that will satisfy both office and field, as well as agree about the goals they want to achieve as they transition to a construction ERP. Our construction industry panelists will share their lessons learned and strategies during this webinar.
Technology is transforming our industry, and we’re making some bold statements about the top 10 tech trends that could make or break your company’s strategies for 2018 and beyond. With keen industry insight, Procore will explore the possibilities of how these technologies impact the way you.
This webinar will address how forecasters see construction markets developing in 2018. ENR will call on two top forecasters, asking them to share their views on the market prospects for the industry, both nationally and regionally. We will then ask a leading industry technology strategist about how he or she envisions the year from a construction technology perspective.
During this webinar, learn how Mott MacDonald and Costain Vinci & Bachy employed digital project delivery principles to coordinate multiple design disciplines and subcontractors located across Europe and increase client engagement.
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.
