The drive to create “digital twins” of physical facilities is transiting from idea to reality, as sophisticated owners and their construction management consultants begin harnessing the growing power of computer processing, reality capture and improved data management tools and techniques to begin putting digital meat on the twins’ bones.
When Microsoft first unveiled the HoloLens mixed-reality headset nearly four years ago, skeptics wondered whether the floating holograms of the bulky headset could serve the design and construction industry as more than a display tool.
Technology and mobile connectivity have gone a long way toward fixing problems with the traditional design and construction process, but only a business model with volume production can reduce risk and deliver results that can truly offset unexpected events.
A software developer with a focus on quantifying weather risk in the insurance industry has branched out to apply its chops to the development of a hyperlocal software-as-a-service weather risk-management system for construction that launched Jan. 29.
In preparation for the launch of its next-generation truck and SUV lines, General Motors embarked on an aggressive program involving renovations and upgrades across their North American production facilities. During this webinar, we will discuss how the team improved collaboration and accountability, and completed designs quickly with fewer errors.
Many technology offerings are designed to help contractors meet requirements on complex projects, because any GC who can’t be sure they are is just waiting for the next “oops” moment to turn profits into losses. During this webinar, we will talk with managers about how they use technology to meet project control requirements—and get a good night’s sleep.
This webinar will explain how to look at the design and needs of a building and develop an optimal solution, based on specific requirements and improved control. You'll also learn best practices for minimizing costs through connected systems for service and maintenance.
