Platform Integration for Engineers, Contractors and Owners

Available On-demand Until June 15, 2022

Duration:60 minutes

Abstract:

Having a single platform to integrate the workflows of many different project disciplines—including, design, estimation and materials procurement—allows today’s connected projects to stay on track, on time and supported, despite supply chains that have been strained since the beginning of the pandemic. 

During this webinar, you’ll learn from experts about how connected cloud tools can avoid rework and data duplication, producing major improvements in the engaged owner's workflow. 

The content of this webinar is produced and directed by ENR's editorial team.

Speakers

Andy Leek

VP - Technology & Innovation

PARIC

Andy is responsible for strategic planning, implementation of enterprise technology, and innovation. Andy’s tenure at PARIC has evolved quickly with a focus on developing a proactive strategy to integrate cloud-based technology ranging from VDC to AI; with processes that enable extended project teams to be more collaborative and efficient. With an architectural background, Andy has utilized technology to design and build solutions, create compelling presentations that communicate the build process from planning through construction.

The convergence of AEC technology and a variety of industry experience has enabled Andy to lead an innovative team with a focus on both design, construction, and analytical technology. Andy has developed several collaborative partnerships with technology providers to influence the development of new tools and integrated processes, and this interaction has further enabled PARIC’s core business practices. In recent years, his use of reality-capture technology including drones and robotic survey and layout instruments has enabled highly accurate projects with controls for the installation of prefabricated MEP systems and structural components.

PARIC’s use of integrated technologies has further enabled their project teams to focus on ‘building’, with significant reductions in RFI’s and design-related field errors. Most recently, Andy and his team have collaborated with leading technology developers to integrate preconstruction activities, including model-based QTO and cloud-based estimating, along with aerial scanning and GPS to more closely align and integrate project contextual and topographic information. Continuing with his cloud-based strategy for data management and content sharing, Andy’s highly integrated approach to technology has enabled PARIC to grow their use of technology rapidly, with confidence and accuracy. This approach is based in connected data, analytics, and mobile accessibility. The value Andy finds is in the access of information, and moves far beyond simple data.

Nathan Wood

CEO

SpectrumAEC

Nathan C. Wood is the Executive Director of Construction Progress Coalition (CPC), a grassroots non-profit initiative to educate AEC professionals about the need for open interoperability standards between project delivery stakeholders. Nathan’s experience with Virtual Design and Construction (VDC), Lean process improvement, and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) has led him to realize how even proven technology solutions can result in lost ROI when the needs of people and processes are not addressed. As Executive Director of the Construction Progress Coalition (ConstructionProgress.org), Nathan balances a passion for data insights and interoperability with stakeholder empathy and produces a pragmatic strategy for digital standards adoption in design and construction. When not fighting for open standards, Nathan also supports the people and process transformation as Chief Enabling Officer of SpectrumAEC. Nathan continues to support industry progress through speaking engagements, research publications, and workshop facilitation.
