Construction firms trying to prevent the spread of COVID-19 were faced with shutdowns, cautious re-openings and concerns that jobsites could be virus hotspots. Reps from Peacock Construction and Arup will explain how they have found opportunity in the pandemic by repurposing a system for startup and handover of complex new facilities.
As artificial intelligence draws attention for ways to address individual challenges in construction, a new class of machine learning-driven technologies are coming online to tackle the broader planning and scheduling issues. We'll talk to the experts and users of these new machine-learning tools on what construction businesses can learn from these AI advisors.
When it comes to project information, email is the letter of today, and has become more critical since the start of the pandemic. Project information management doesn't need to be expensive and clunky. Arup has developed another way, which is simple and cost effective, and brings their project information and critical correspondence into one, central location.
