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.
Jobsite cameras have become an essential tool for the modern connected jobsite. Understanding these systems and how they support construction best practices is important in today’s ever-expanding jobsite technology array.
The Spot-R tag from Triax Technologies can monitor when a worker experiences a sudden fall and alert supervisors. Now its compatible with site access control technology for a clearer view of where workers are on the jobsite.
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.
Project and technology managers at many mid-sized construction companies are eager to implement new technologies to improve project delivery. During this webinar, ENR will interview successful innovators at several firms who have broken through the barriers to get their organizations to embrace new technologies, and we will hear about the techniques they use to keep tech adoption simple, successful and standardized.
Through the use of 3D laser scanning, construction organizations can benefit greatly when working with prefabricated components. Gaining exact measurements for off-site preparations and manufacturing can result in massive savings in time and labor. Learn how you can leverage 3D Laser Scanning and automatic prefabrication technology to become a world class contractor.
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.
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.
