Technology and its many applications in the construction trades is the overarching theme for the upcoming AEC BuildTech Conference & Expo. In the conference's General Contracting track, attendees will learn how technology can tie all the moving operations together.
A collaboration between laser-scanning data capture firms ClearEdge3D and Rithm has resulted in a tool that is able to accurately measure floor flatness while the concrete slab is still wet, allowing pavers to make real-time adjustments.
Today’s drones help project managers, superintendents, and virtual design & construction (VDC) teams build instant ROI with aerial photos, maps, and 3D models. Attend this webinar to hear from industry experts leading the charge to bring drones to construction, and learn how you can leverage drones on your job sites.
Advances in procurement technology are helping companies increase the number and quality of bidders, drive down costs through greater competition and eliminate many time-consuming manual procurement processes. During this webinar, participants will learn procurement best practices.
BuildIT Construction, with 3D laser scanning, is the first consolidated software and hardware solution that enables users to perform immediate, real-time build and verify analysis through the entire project and facilitates a new level of cost management and operational efficiency. During this webinar, our expert speaker will discuss this new software.
Broadcasting LIVE from FutureTech 2018 | Construction firms are turning to machine learning and data analytics to automatically sift through data as it is acquired to recognize trends and patterns, reduce risk and support data-driven decisions. Our panelists will share examples of their progress toward this goal and discuss where they see it heading.
Broadcasting LIVE from FutureTech 2018 | Our panelists’ firms are early adopters of the tools of virtual and augmented reality. For years, they have been devoting sustained resources of their own to establish a foundation for leveraging those tools on jobsites. We will get a report on where they are now, and where they are going with this technology tomorrow.
Digital systems that manage processes with precision have been taken up by many project managers to ensure the timely exchange of accurate deliverables and to gain instant visibility and auditability into each step of the process. In this webinar, we will get advice from project managers who have made the transition to a digital workflow.
When working on big projects, it can be hard to stay on top of which workers are qualified to do what. Luckily, there are now ways to bring training certification data into smarter workforce management tools. During this webinar, ENR will talk with the experts about their experiences tracking training certifications more intelligently.
ENR will call on two top forecasters, asking them to share their views on the market prospects for the industry at midyear, both nationally and regionally. We then will add another layer by asking a leading industry technology strategist about how the year is playing out from a construction technology perspective.
The civil infrastructure world has always been a step behind its structural counterpart in implementing BIM technologies, but it is starting to catch up. This webinar will explore how transportation practitioners can understand key elements of BIM, how to implement it and how it can benefit their projects.
A shared understanding and agreement is the foundation of successful projects. We will talk with designers, construction managers and contractors about how they reach this state, and how modern technologies are making it easier to reduce disputes throughout construction and speed up the signing of agreements to save money and boost efficiency.
