Projects Conference NYC – Planning + Pre-construction

When

2.20.2019 - 2.21.2019

Where

Company (formerly Grand Central Tech) 335 Madison Avenue New York, NY 10017

Premier Sponsors

Before you even break ground on a project, your project has to be financed, designed, budgeted, value engineered, scheduled, insured, and more. From big software players, like Microsoft, Oracle, and Autodesk to more specialized players, like Alice, Pype, and IrisVR, technology is streamlining pre-construction activities on our projects.

At Projects New York, we’ll spend the morning showing you how to leverage emerging technologies to revolutionize how you plan your projects and then in the afternoon, you’ll get to experience it first-hand. We’ve curated a group of cutting-edge startups across six categories – Design, Testing and Validation of Designs, Scheduling, Estimating, and Logistics Planning. Get ready to roll your sleeves up, put on that Oculus, and grab the controller yourself. You’ll be inspired with new ideas to implement on your next project and leave with a deeper understanding of how the many different technologies work together.

Exhibitors

This conference 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 plan and run an efficient, collaborative job site. Our slate of industry leaders and technology experts will introduce them to the most innovative approaches and latest tech that are making an extreme impact in preconstruction.

VDCs, Preconstruction Leaders, and Project 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 planning of the entire project. That starts with understanding how BIM, AI, and Machine Learning are making a splash in preconstruction.

Real Estate Developers and Owners

They’re in charge of the maintenance and operations of buildings and are the decision makers investing in new technology. Understanding the full landscape of industry trends, end-user needs, and the utilization of digital twins preconstruction is crucial for them.

Keynote: AI in Building Estimating and Scheduling

Rawle Sawh, Head of VDC, Gilbane

What is the relationship between VDC and preconstruction? How do they work together? Used to be an estimating department to determine the planning, but we grew this VDC group that works with a model. Do these groups work together? How does the VDC effort support the process of developing estimates and schedules? What did it mean to be head of VDC 2 years ago, what does it mean today, and what do you expect it to mean in 2 years?
