Where research intersects with construction equipment and materials, applications of machine learning and knowledge-based systems, robotics, 3D Printing, internet of things, wearable computing, applications of drones to construction, safety systems
Efficiencies in design, construction and building use are being unlocked thanks to analysis and proactive changes informed by construction data. Even 3D printing for a NASA project on structures on Mars is on the table.
“Ideas and solutions are the easy part,” says Ricardo Khan, senior director of innovation at Mortenson Construction. It’s “the process” that is the real challenge. Khan’s midday keynote captured one of the key themes of the second day of the virtual ENR FutureTech conference—the need to identify the problems in your construction process before you start throwing technology at them
Telematics, wearables, online collaboration, 3D model management tools and the ever-evolving ways contractors collect and use data took center stage in the first day of ENR's all-virtual FutureTech construction technology conference.
A new coordination workflow between Autodesk BIM 360 Model Coordination and Navisworks allows users to assign and track clashes and other issuers from anywhere to anywhere without meetings and other face-to-face activities.

We've designed Revu 2019 to be our fastest, most efficient version yet, with improved speed, enhanced takeoff functionality and a new tool to help you quickly roll out Revu across your organization. We'll take a deep dive into Revu 2019 and explore new features and tools that reduce errors and rework, deliver consistently smooth performance and provide new ways to standardize Revu across teams.
As organizations introduce new technologies, new standard processes, or organizational and cultural changes, it’s important to understand how these changes will impact employees. Utilizing change management and adoption strategies will help ease turmoil when change arrives. This panel discussion includes leaders who have spearheaded or been involved with major organizational changes.
Knowing your project status at all times and being able to say with confidence what has been finished, what's next and how you are progressing on the plan is a sure fire way to improve your business. Learn how recent advances in reality capture are being put to work on jobsites to nail down progress and improve company reputations for being on top of things, all the time.
In August, Procore acquired Honest Buildings to double down on our commitment to build purpose-built technology for owners. During this webinar, we’ll hear about the vision for the future of software solutions for owners, and learn the benefits owners can gain through managing projects and capital through a connected ecosystem of technology used by all stakeholders.
Today’s design and engineering world rely on multiple applications for building design and analysis to optimize energy efficiency, structural integrity, and mechanical system sizing. This leads to disparate systems not linked together. Attendees will learn how Bentley’s Open technology brings together all of these applications to maximize project efficiencies and drive better results.
Facing a tight labor market, many contractors are considering off-site modular prefabrication as a way to boost productivity, quality and safety without staffing up. But builders who have gone there warn that you had better think it through. During this webinar, we will talk with representatives from firms that have set up and operate modular prefab shops for tips on what to do, what not to do, and how best to get started.
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.
