Citing a growing and increasingly crowded field of grade-control systems and site layout technology, the Association of Equipment Manufacturers announced on Feb. 18 that it is working with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) on a common standard for grade-control data sharing.
Standing before a crowd of curious onlookers at a corner of the show floor at the World of Concrete trade show in Las Vegas, Advanced Construction Robotics president and cofounder Jeremy Searock made a sales pitch for TyBot, his company’s rebar-tying robot.
At the King George the Fifth dock site on the River Thames, a contractor is using smart sensors to monitor the strength of concrete it’s casting to form 75,000 sq meters of slab over water to extend the footprint of London City Airport.
In late December, the Federal Aviation Administration published proposed regulations governing the usage of drones in the U.S., triggering a pushback from drone professionals over rules requiring live transmitting of drone locations during operation.
We are starting to enjoy the advantages of a wealth of new image analysis technologies that can nearly automate the daily collection of work-put-in-place metrics, correlated to crew performance and schedule. The jobsite-ready tools enabling this are now being integrated into project management systems to take their place in the daily workflow. We'll talk with early adopters to get their advice.
It can be challenging to find software products that meet the requirements of the IT organization while serving the needs of the business. This webinar will focus on the latest release of CMiC’s suite of software: R12. We'll discuss CMiC's transition to the Cloud and how they found an optimal balance between a deep set of product features and a consistent and intuitive user experience across the entire suite.
Who are the go-to leaders solidifying and advancing technology improvements at your firm? Chances are it’s not the director of IT, but the project managers and supervisors who drive for productivity gains every day. Attendees will get tips for tapping into this valuable tech feedback loop from leaders at construction firms where nurturing and supporting internal technology user groups is part of the DNA.
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.
Succeeding with Lean Construction’s systematic approach to reducing waste, rework and delay requires the implementation of a set of inter-related production management policies. Getting the right technology is key, but without implementing the right policies, the hoped for results won’t be achieved. In the webinar, the experts who understand Lean Construction will share their tips for setting it up and doing it right.
