Increasing labor costs, high turnover rates, not enough technically savvy staff; these nightmares in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry are all too often the reality of running a business.
After announcing a technology partnership with Autodesk last November, virtual reality and gaming engine platform producer Unity Technologies has introduced its first-ever product for the construction industry.
The moves pull closer into the Autodesk orbit technologies and services that support the conversion of the ideas defined by Autodesk’s design products—the company’s traditional core offerings—into the processes and outcome of construction.
Tridify, a software technology firm developing automation products for AEC, announced on Dec. 11 a partnership with the virtual reality platform vendor Unity Technologies to leverage a new cloud service, Tridify Convert, that lets developers rapidly import BIM and 3D CAD files into Unity with its Industry Foundation Class-formatted BIM data intact.
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.
Software is now available to automatically assess work status by applying image recognition technology to video from reality capture tools like 360º cameras that go along for the ride on supervisors’ jobwalks. Our panelists are experimenting with such tools on jobsites now and will share what they know about how this technology is playing out, and what it looks to be best suited for in the future.
Bundling building technology systems for owners and developers will reduce the total cost of ownership, strengthen net operating income (NOI) and asset valuation over the lifetime of your project. From costs and performance, to tenant satisfaction and net zero sustainable solutions, this webinar will provide insight into what building owners and investors should be thinking about when planning new construction.
Mobile technology and cloud services are improving productivity on job sites by sharpening the tools managers use to understand the financial impacts of decisions and changes. Join us for this webinar to hear from project managers in the field who will tell us how they are using cloud services and mobile technologies today to reach better outcomes, control costs and stay on—or even ahead—of schedule.
Today’s leading design project managers, engineering managers, and BIM managers are leveraging a wide array of new digital strategies to more easily deliver projects on time, in budget, and according to specifications. A panel of practicing experts will discuss key digital strategies that helped them stay on schedule, avoid risk and rework, and drive better project outcomes.
The process of modeling even simple bridges can become tedious and error prone after engineers complete several design and analysis iterations. Engineers and drafters are faced with analysis coordination, complex diaphragm placements, reinforcement detailing, and clash detection. Join our webinar to learn how 3D modeling of common bridges can help you unlock greater project design efficiencies on your next project.
Your world is changing. Projects are becoming more complex, new paradigms of work are emerging, and expectations are higher than ever to deliver top-quality projects ahead of schedule and under budget. ENR will talk with a panel of practicing design project leaders about new industry challenges and the solutions that they leveraged to remain competitive and drive better project outcomes.
As the death toll from the record-setting hurricane mounts in the Bahamas and damage estimates there and in the U.S. head into the billions, industry experts see increasing pressure to address infrastructure resilience.
