The pandemic has forced many asset owners to demand better models and maintenance of their infrastructure assets, giving engineering firms an opportunity to be data curators and analysts for everything from water systems to energy grids, executive says.
The Louisiana Dept. of Transportation and Development (DOTD) was already conducting a pilot project with HeadLight—a photo- and cloud-based construction inspection system—when 2020 came along with the COVID-19 pandemic and five hurricanes.
Autodesk announced Tandem, its digital twin coordination tool, at Autodesk University last year. That tool entered public beta this month, allowing anyone to start building out digital twins of their projects.
Improving construction data practices and finding new ways to use machine-learning and other advanced algorithms in projects has been a hot topic in the industry, but some firms are already seeing real benefits. That was the consensus of a panel of experts convened for ENR’s 2021 Top Young Professionals conference, held Feb. 24-26.
Do you want to develop invoicing and collections strategies to increase cash flow and streamline processes to improve workflow, but don’t know where to start? During this webinar, our speakers will discuss the 4 keys to improving workflow and cash flow in an engineering organization using business technology and software tools.
During this webinar, we will discuss the flow and enrichment of information known as a Digital Thread, from early capital planning through delivery to post-construction operations via a Digital Twin, which organizes the artifacts of design and construction into a single structured repository of mission-critical information. Together, these help drive project predictability.
Robots already are joining construction crews to protect their human counterparts from dangerous work or from the monotonous repetitive tasks that are hard on the human body. The COVID-19 crisis has shown additional potential needs for keeping human workers out of close contact with one another, Panelists with field experience will discuss what it’s like working along with robots, and what’s coming in the future.
Join ENR 400 top contractor, Rogers-O’Brien, to learn about the evolution of their UAS program from its humble beginnings with a single pilot to having a fleet of drones integral to their operations. Innovation Manager, James Holmes, will give his insights, best practices, and lessons learned on implementing drone technology at every job site.
This webinar will address how the markets are playing out in 2020 amid the COVID-19 Crisis. Top forecasters will share their views on the market prospects for the industry at midyear, both nationally & regionally, in the midst of these unique challenges. We'll also chat with a leading industry technology strategist about how the year is playing out from a construction technology perspective.
Rumor is that owners typically have a 10,000-foot view of their capital projects, seeing things only at a high level with minimal detail. But with advancements in today’s cloud-based capital project software, the view from above is giving owners more control than ever before. We’ll discuss how cloud technology has sharpened the owner’s view of the entire project life cycle, yielding better project outcomes for all.
Bluebeam Revu is a productivity solution built for today’s AEC industry, designed to improve quality and increase efficiency across the project lifecycle. But did you know you can use Revu to mark up documents with your teammates in real time, even when they aren’t in the office with you? Attend this webinar to learn more.
Autonomous Vehicles will be computers on wheels, drastically impacting traditional vehicle development processes. The future success of carmakers depends on autonomous driving and inclusion in mobility-as-a-service offerings. You'll learn more about closed-loop vehicle development and digitalization throughout the supply chain: from chip, through system and vehicle, up to city level mobility systems.
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.
