How BIM Brings Safety to the Construction Site

Construction is one of the most dangerous and hazardous industries worldwide — even with a significant drop in the rate of injuries over the last 20 years. Fortunately, there are new advancements being made every day to improve construction-site safety.

BIM Software Keeps Construction Projects Running on Time

One single building project can involve designers, engineers, architects, and subcontractors spending hundreds of hours drafting the plans and executing the build. And while this type of collaboration has the potential to take a project to the next level, it can also be problematic without proper coordination.

Moving to Digital Collaboration: Save Time and Money

Blame Johannes Gutenberg. His 15th century printing press essentially sparked the world’s love for the printed word. In 1455; his first production of a set of 200 illustrated Latin Bibles launched Europe into the original information age. Fast forward to the 21st...

Invest in Construction IT: Preparing for the Future

It’s difficult to build towards something impossible to envision. The truth of the matter is we do not have a crystal ball; we cannot predict the future. We can look to the past for lessons and trends, but we must rely upon dreams, visions, and educated guesses for...

Transforming Construction Through Automation

Historically, the construction industry has been labor-intensive and slow to embrace emerging technologies. One could argue that it’s been generations since the industry has experienced significant changes in methods and processes. But all that is changing, as recent...

Are You Ready for BIM?

Building information modeling (BIM) is quickly transitioning from a “nice to have” technology to a “MUST have” technology. If you want to compete effectively, you need BIM technology in your toolbox. This is real. We aren’t saying that BIM is critical to your success...

Trending: Modular Construction to Grow Again in 2017

There can be no doubt: the modular (also known as “offsite”) construction concept is becoming more and more important to the construction industry. A Google search revealed six major real estate and construction sites that list modular as a trend to watch in 2017....

3D Laser Scanning & the Point Cloud: Seeing Is Believing

Laser scanning technology cuts costs for wall panel manufacturing for existing buildings. When it comes to technology in the construction industry, there’s a new kid on the block: 3D laser scanning. This process creates digital images of existing structures and...

Modular Construction Is Green Construction

One compelling reason to consider modular construction is its positive effect on our environment. According to the Modular Building Institute, modular techniques are “inherently” green. Not only is it the right thing to do, but modular construction also translates...

Modular Construction: Safer Materials, Safer Workers

Safety does not happen by accident. This axiom holds true at home, on the road, and on the job. Safety on job sites under construction is extremely important; quite literally, lives are at stake. Did you know projects using modular construction techniques may improve...

Modular Construction for the Healthcare Industry

It’s no coincidence that modular construction is becoming increasingly accepted as a viable building method. A recent survey of 800 Australian design and contracting professionals confirms that modular techniques result in shorter project schedules, lower budgets, and...
