An advanced weather service recently taken up by airlines and other industries that need hyper-accurate forecasting is making inroads into construction, and early-adopting roofing companies already are beginning to rely on its granular forecasts and alerts.
Construction companies face the same challenges as technology companies and must be willing to embrace new delivery means and methods for their services... just as Netflix embraced streaming over mail-delivered DVDs.
The focus of IBHS outreach in 2019 is calling out details of landscaping, construction materials, and the assembly of decks, roofs, siding, soffits and vents as ignition-point risks when seeded by wind-blown embers. It also is looking at the fire resistance of manufactured lumber, versus natural materials.
Despite advances in recent years in bringing digital data to projects management and oversight, a new report from Dodge Data & Analytics with Viewpoint Construction Software shows there is still a great deal of work to be done.
More than 200 major firms are acquired in the construction space each year. But how do you integrate the merged company into the parent company's technology backbone, including project management, financial and administrative software systems? Attendees will learn best practices from companies that have experiences in acquiring firms successfully.
Because of recent technology advances, today’s 3D LiDAR, Nadir and Oblique aerial images can be used to quickly tease out and report surprisingly deep and accurate information about project sites and surroundings. During this webinar, we will talk with several construction industry users who are discovering new ways to get the most out of 3D aerial images to reduce costs and improve project outcomes.
Construction groups are increasing using VR immersive technology to attract and train new talent. The next generation of the industry can drive virtual dozers, walk virtual sites and perform virtual tasks to earn credits while minimizing risk and cost. Attendees will find out how this technology is evolving, including the caveats, cautions and next iterations.
Drones are transforming the way large companies do business across the entire enterprise. Once small programs prove their value, they tend to grow quickly, so starting with a strong foundation is key. In this webinar, we’ll present case studies from some of the most successful in-house drone programs in the industry as well as advice from top drone consultants.
Construction work starts and progresses as decisions are made, obligations are accepted and commitments are communicated. Until that happens, progress stalls and everything that’s waiting on a decision is at risk of delay, disruption or dissolution. In this webinar we will talk with construction industry executives about the changing technologies and techniques that help them smooth out and de-risk critical project information flow.
Technology can play a critical role in enabling better project management processes and outcomes – but can it affect your firm’s bottom line? This webinar covers the spectrum of technology’s critical role in effectively managing design projects from inception to completion. Attendees will hear invaluable perspective not only from the product side, but from the end-user as well.
Stantec is transforming how it delivers projects—moving from unmanaged drawings and data to centralized data management. Join this discussion on the technical drivers that are compelling this top, global firm to standardize on a Common Data Environment, and hear examples of the business results they are seeing—both expected and unexpected.
With fully autonomous construction equipment on the horizon and semi-autonomous equipment already at work on jobsites, ENR will talk to some of the early adopters and technology providers for autonomous equipment and sensor-heavy jobsites about the benefits and challenges of these new technologies.
Recent innovations in HD aerial imaging such as high-res 2D orthomosaics, oblique aerial imagery, and 3D location content allow architecture, construction, and engineering firms to quickly identify ground conditions, improve workflows, and enhance collaboration with up-to-date, clear visualizations. During this webinar, attendees will learn how these new forms of location content can help their organizations.
As more technology tools hit the market, it can be overwhelming to cut through the clutter and invest in a solution that adds value without adding unnecessary technical complexity or burden. How can contractors identify and implement solutions that work across different project sites? Attendees will learn the top solutions, strategies and best practices for maximizing construction’s digital transformation.
