THIS EVENT IS GREAT FOR:
GC’s and Construction Executives
As the professionals in charge of executing large-scale building projects, it’s up to them to make sure their company is using the most relevant technology to run an efficient, collaborative job site. Our slate of speakers and technology experts will introduce them to the latest technologies and softwares that can make this happen.
VDCs, Project Managers, & Field Managers
As the true leaders in the creation of technology products that impact our building processes, these
individuals must find creative ways to integrate solutions into the field. That starts with understanding the different technology options available to them on the market, where to start when implementing these solutions, and how to get executives to buy into investing in new tech.
Real Estate Developers and Owners
They’re in charge of the maintenance and operations of buildings (which project management plays a crucial role in) and are the decision makers investing in new technology. Understanding the full landscape of industry trends, evolving standards, and end-user needs is crucial for them and the Projects Conferences gives them that chance.

Day 1 Schedule
Analyst Luncheon and Foundry Group Workshop
Matt Gagne, Research Manager, BuiltWorlds
The Aches & Pains of Project Management
John Lichtenwalter, Division President, Catamount Constructors | Lee Rogers, Project Manager, Catamount Constructors | Jeff Jozwiak, Principal, Norcon, Inc. | Sarah Roxworthy, Project Executive, Norcon, Inc.
Hear about the challenges and opportunities of a project management system that works for everyone in the project lifecycle from the owner to the project manager to the subcontractor and beyond.
Data Sharing Council to Advance Predictive Analytics
Josh Kanner, Founder & CEO, Smartvid.io
Many firms have agreed to share digital project data from a period of more than 10 years to build predictive models for safety and risk. The council is not financially backed by any vendors, although some of the participating firms will provide some funding.
Keynote: Constructability: Going Beyond the Limits of BIM
Michelle Frye, Director of Buildings Strategy, Trimble
Today’s construction stakeholders don’t care how fancy a BIM model is, they care about getting projects done on time with minimized overruns or mistakes. By combining design, project management, and engineering models into a collaboration platform, data from different sources can be used to make more informed decisions before build and beyond. This session will provide an overview of the Constructible Process along with real-world examples of how users are moving beyond BIM to eliminate errors, automate field work and optimize a broad range of construction workflows.
