Technology will not solve the AEC industry's productivity problem. People will. Of course, people will need technology to do it, but as an industry we can’t afford to forget that it is individuals, all working together, who will deliver the actual change. With the current job shortage facing our industry, how do we invest in building the workforce that can deliver on the promise technology offers? Rick Khan, (Mortenson Construction), Jeong Woo, Ph.D., (Milwaukee School of Engineering), Greg Schleusner, AIA, (HOK) and Danielle Dy Buncio (VIATechnik) offer their views and suggestions on enabling the future AEC workforce in this third installment of a four-part series of bonus content from Accelerate Live! 2018, sponsored by Bluebeam

Accelerate Live! talk: Regenerative design — When sustainability is not enough

 

SUMMARY
A fundamental shift is occurring from the old guard of sustainability to the new one of regenerative design. Whereas sustainable development attempts to meet the needs of the present without compromising the needs of future generations, regenerative development seeks to rejuvenate the environment and the people who live within its ecosystem. 

In this 15-minute talk at BD+C’s Accelerate Live! conference (May 10, 2018, Chicago), HMC’s Eric Carbonnier poses the question: What if buildings could actually rejuvenate ecosystems?

Carbonnier discusses how the goal of regenerative design is not simply to take less from nature, but to inspirit the environment around us. This starts by understanding our limitations and embracing the unknown. While the theory of regenerative design is—to some degree—may be unattainable, it is this "unknown" that inspires us to push the limits of what we know.

Accelerate Live! talk: The smart jobsite — Predictive visual data analytics for proactive project controls

 

SUMMARY
The rise of reality capture technology, combined with enterprising software development, has opened the door to true real-time analysis of construction jobsites.

Firms are utilizing images and video from smartphones, drones, rovers, laser scanners, and 360 cameras to more effectively track progress and productivity on the jobsite, and identify risk for potential delays. 

In this 15-minute talk at BD+C’s Accelerate Live! conference (May 10, 2018, Chicago), a trio of experts in predictive visual data analytics presents how design-build giant Clayco has leveraged this technology to achieve production efficiency on several construction sites.   

They present how images and videos from drones and smartphone cameras are used within computer vision algorithms to automatically generate 3D reality models over project timeline. They also show how AI algorithms compare reality models with 4D BIM to track progress and productivity and identify risk for potential delays.
