Apps for Use in Construction

Summary: This session will feature new and innovative Apps that your field staff can use on smartphones and tablets for supporting your construction processes. It will provide an overview of current Apps that will enable your field staff to stay out more on the project with access to email, photos, drawings, and connecting in real time to send RFIs, safety reports, or update punchlists. This will allow field staff to be more productive and avoid staying in the trailer to catch up on RFIs, emails, and questions that can be resolved more quickly while in the field. These Apps work and can save your organization substantial productive hours.

From Excel to the Cloud: Discuss Success in the Cloud

Summary: Can your organization really make the leap from home-grown construction management methods (Excel spreadsheets + email + boxes of physical documents) to a cloud-based system? Does a cloud-based approach to project management really improve project performance?
 
Hear from companies who have made the transition to cloud-based tools for team collaboration, cost control, risk management, and tracking all project documents and communications in a single repository. Our panelists are managing a diverse set of capital projects—saving time, saving money, going paperless and efficiently integrating the entire project team.

Interoperability: A Technology or People Problem?

Summary: Over the last 10 years, advancements in software technology and migration to the cloud have given CM a whole new set of tools and systems. But what happens when these tools or systems don’t integrate or speak with one another? This session, derived from research conducted by CMAA's Emerging Technology Committee, will identify the most common types of systems integration, address the interoperability challenges CMs and organizations face and assess whether the underlying issue is really a people or a technology problem.

Leverage BIM for a Truly Different Building Experience

Summary: What information is necessary in a Building Information Model (BIM) provided by a design team to tee up a successful project for your CMAR? This session defines the translation and evolution of the design model provided by the architect and engineers to the federated fabrication and coordination model created and used by the project’s trade contractors. This session answers the question of what BIM information is really helpful to construction professionals. Session attendees will be surprised by what a CMAR is looking for in a design BIM. Additionally the session looks at the role of CMAR as gatekeeper of the model.

New Techniques in Technology-Based Field Data Collections

Summary: This session will address and demonstrate the different forms of automated field data collection, primarily focusing on three topics:
1.) Laser Topics
 
2.) Photogrammetric methods
 
3.) Augmented Reality
 
The session will define each method and describe the workflow required to produce a 3D model utilizing the data input. In addition, it will compare the methods in terms of time and cost investment, product quality, software and hardware required, and typical uses.

Robots and Hackers and Drones, Oh My! The Ethical Challenges of Emerging Technology

Summary: With the frenetic pace of technology advancement, it is sometimes unclear what "side effects" accompany new solutions. It is easy to embrace the next newest thing without thoughtful regard for the ramifications. This presentation explores the ethical role of CM professionals in recommending and using new technology. It will provoke thought and reflection on CM practices beyond "does this work?" to "does this benefit stakeholders?

Shaping the Model for Lifecycle BIM

Summary: The true benefit of BIM lies in the beneficial reuse and analysis of data and information, but can we really trust all information provided to us in the model by the architect, engineer, contractor, or consultant? What are the checking procedures that a model should undergo for us to be able to truly trust all information output from the model? This session will address possible pitfalls if the Building Information Model is not thoroughly checked, and present workflow best practices for model validation and model conditioning to further prepare the model for effective information extraction.
