    • Changing the Game with the Cloud in Architecture, Engineering, and Construction
      Changing the Game with the Cloud in Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Laurence Sotsky, Vince Sarubbi, Cliff Moser, Julie O'Brien Recorded: Mar 28 2013 5:00 pm UTC 61 mins
    • According to survey findings in the 2012 Construction Industry Hiring and Business Outlook from the AGC (Associated General Contractors of America), one in four construction firms plan to switch financial, job cost, or operational software to the cloud this year. The reasons are simple -- the right cloud applications can maximize project collaboration, make your business more agile and reduce operational costs. Join us to learn how you can use secure cloud collaboration to centralize your content and make information available anywhere, anytime -- using any mobile device. We’ll discuss common use cases, plus the most popular desktop and mobile productivity applications for AEC professionals.

      Speakers:
      Laurence Sotsky - SVP Worldwide Sales, Gehry Technologies

    • Augmented Construction: How Virtual Environments are Impacting the Physical
      Augmented Construction: How Virtual Environments are Impacting the Physical Rob Charlton, CEO, Space Group & Adam Ward, Director, BIM Technologies Recorded: Nov 30 2016 1:00 pm UTC 48 mins
    • In an age of perpetual advancing technology, it’s often difficult to keep up with what’s going to be the “next big thing”.

      Traditional construction methods are fast being overtaken by modern building processes, and what we’re now terming; digital construction.

      As industry innovators, we’re championing the leap from digital construction to augmented construction. There is scope for augmented reality to play a major role in helping construction teams in the field understand how various systems and components fit together during production. But more importantly, it can facilitate a route for architects to take their designs into a virtual environment before the high risk move to construction.

      The current process for a structure is that it is designed in 3D, transferred to 2D documents and then built in a virtual

      3D format. The transition from 3D to 2D and back again can often lead to errors, therefore, what if we could cut this middle step out altogether?

      Just imagine being able to put on an AR headset and see exactly which line on a 2D construction document corresponds to a given object, such as a section of pipe or cable network. Being able to bring drawings into a physical model, giving a sense of scale, proportion, form and space.

      In this webinar, we’ll take you through the following:

       What is Augmented Construction

       Technological advancements and what benefits they bring to the industry

       How to use AR effectively

       What role does data play in this?

       Example projects, who’s using this now

       The next step

    • Strategy Indices And Their Role In Institutional Portfolio Construction
      Strategy Indices And Their Role In Institutional Portfolio Construction Brendan Maton Recorded: Feb 16 2012 10:00 am UTC 62 mins
    • MSCI invites you to attend a special webinar on ‘Strategy Indices and Their Role in Institutional Portfolio Construction.”
      The event will be hosted by Dimitris Melas, MSCI Executive Director and Global Head of New Product Research, and Roger Urwin, Special Adviser to MSCI and Global Head of Investment Content at Towers Watson.
      Topics for discussion include:
      * Definitions of alpha are evolving as investors recognise that strategy indices can capture various systematic risk premia (alternative beta) such as value, size, low volatility or momentum. Systematic factors are increasingly considered key drivers of long-term performance.
      * Institutional asset allocation may be on the verge of a shift from diversification across active managers in multiple alpha mandates towards diversification across strategy betas in multiple index mandates.
      * We present a risk budgeting framework for integrating strategy indices into institutional portfolios where allocations to risk premia strategies are based on their expected risk and performance characteristics.
      * Increasing adoption of risk-based asset allocation, growing acceptance of the potential impact of systematic risk factors on long-term portfolio performance and the need to capture these factors through transparent and cost effective vehicles may drive further innovation and new product development in the indexing arena.

    • Construction and Demolition Waste Recycling Market Growth Fuelled by Circular Ec
      Construction and Demolition Waste Recycling Market Growth Fuelled by Circular Ec Monika Chrusciak, Research Analyst Recorded: Jul 25 2014 11:00 am UTC 16 mins
    • Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste has become a major concern in Europe, driven by legal requirements regarding waste reduction, recycling and diverting waste material resources away from landfilling. The gradual increase of waste and limited landfill space boost recycling efforts, which benefits the development of the C&D waste recycling services market. Legislative goals are targeting 70% recycling of C&D waste by 2020, which is a key driver for this market. The push for C&D waste recycling has further prompted waste management companies to optimize collection systems and increase recycling levels to sustain market revenues. Optimization of collection and recycling technologies is expected to increase revenue for C&D waste recycling companies. This briefing provides top-level insight of the analysis conducted on the European C&D Waste Recycling sector for the forecast period from 2012 to 2020.

    • Safety Culture World Webinar: Tone from the Top
      Safety Culture World Webinar: Tone from the Top David Watts, Atkinson Construction; Mark Helm, Dolese Bros. Co. Recorded: Nov 19 2014 4:00 pm UTC 64 mins
    • Each time a leader speaks with employees is an opportunity to build and sustain a culture of safety excellence. Whether the topic is production, scheduling, quality or any other issue critical to your business, the message relates to safety and has an impact on performance. The way in which middle managers, vice presidents and top executives engage tells employees what is important to the organization – and what’s important to the organization will be important to employees. Make sure your leaders are equipped to conduct every conversation in a way that fosters your safety journey.

      Leaders from two Caterpillar Safety Services customer organizations will co-present this interactive discussion. We invite you to add your own experiences and lessons learned to the dialog -- come prepared to engage, challenge and learn.

    • High Design; Low Impact: Building LivingHomes
      High Design; Low Impact: Building LivingHomes Steve Glenn, CEO, LivingHomes Recorded: Apr 25 2012 3:00 pm UTC 49 mins
    • As the visionary founder of LivingHomes, the award-winning prefabricated homes that combine world-class architecture with an unparalleled commitment to healthy and sustainable construction, Steve Glenn has become a leading voice within the sustainable building movement.

      The developer of the nation’s first LEED Platinum home, and with over nine LivingHomes in development that are designed to achieve LEED Platinum, Glenn is one of the more experienced builders of environmentally conscious homes in the United States. While LivingHomes uses the LEED program for external review and validation, the company has established its own Z6 sustainable building goals, which serve as development objectives for each LivingHome, insuring that they have as close as possible to zero negative impact on health and environment. The Z6 goals are Zero Water, Zero Energy, Zero Waste, Zero Emissions, Zero Carbon and Zero Ignorance.

      Glenn will share his experiences working with leading architects, including Ray Kappe, FAIA, one the most celebrated modern architects in the US, and KieranTimberlake, the AIA 2009 Firm of the Year, to create LivingHomes. He will discuss the specific elements that go into a LivingHome to achieve the Z6 goals and the process of building a LivingHome - from its factory construction to on-site installation in mere hours. Attendees will gain new insights into sustainable design and prefabrication, and will be able to get any questions answered about building a LivingHome.
