Tracy Young had enough project smarts and technology vision to create PlanGrid, a now widely used cloud-based platform that has transformed field-document handling and brought an eye-popping buyout price from software giant Autodesk.
Growing up in heavy construction, and running projects for his dad during summers, one thing Gregory Penza says he learned is that the only way to compete in construction is to come up with new and better ways to do things.
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.
Integrating design document creation and project execution into a unified platform is the strategic goal of Autodesk's $875 million acquisition of a tech startup that set out to replace blueprints with digital workflows delivered by mobile devices on jobsites, seven years ago.
This webinar will address how forecasters see construction markets developing in 2018. ENR will call on two top forecasters, asking them to share their views on the market prospects for the industry, both nationally and regionally. We will then ask a leading industry technology strategist about how he or she envisions the year from a construction technology perspective.
During this webinar, learn how Mott MacDonald and Costain Vinci & Bachy employed digital project delivery principles to coordinate multiple design disciplines and subcontractors located across Europe and increase client engagement.
Drones are a great asset to many projects, but they also add another layer of complexity beyond juggling contractors, scheduling delays, permits, and inspections. Learn best practices in managing and scaling your drone program from the experts, as well as lessons learned while expanding a drone program expansion.
Usually with the best intentions, some contract writers can be very prescriptive about a construction team's technology products, standards & deliverables. And sometimes that can set teams up for trouble as technology evolves. Our expert panel will discuss ways to help you avoid getting tripped up.
Good ideas are common, & successful pilots and field trials are too. What's unusual are ideas that make it through the trials and become implemented into standard practices to make permanent improvements in company operations. How do you put your money on ideas that will really work? Our innovation experts will share their strategies.
In preparation for the launch of its next-generation truck and SUV lines, General Motors embarked on an aggressive program involving renovations and upgrades across their North American production facilities. During this webinar, we will discuss how the team improved collaboration and accountability, and completed designs quickly with fewer errors.
Many technology offerings are designed to help contractors meet requirements on complex projects, because any GC who can’t be sure they are is just waiting for the next “oops” moment to turn profits into losses. During this webinar, we will talk with managers about how they use technology to meet project control requirements—and get a good night’s sleep.
This webinar will explain how to look at the design and needs of a building and develop an optimal solution, based on specific requirements and improved control. You'll also learn best practices for minimizing costs through connected systems for service and maintenance.
A new study from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has been released! Join this webinar to learn about the new study’s findings, hear how technology has played a key role in these productivity advances, and gain insight into a specific construction company’s path towards productivity gains.
