A Catalyst for Innovation: A Developer's Learning Laboratory
What happens when a building developer unlocks innovation by adding funding for R&D to a project? Join Doug Moore as he describes the South Landing Development in Spokane, Washington, a zero-carbon, zero-energy project that launched new innovative market offerings.
Design to Value: Industrialized Construction
A design-to-value approach challenges designers to lead the way in creating more innovative and stakeholder-centric analyses, workflows, construction techniques, and products. In this webinar, Jaimie and Maria will discuss the manifestation of Design to Value as Industrialized Construction, giving examples of recent innovations, and projects, and discussing the potential for wider adoption.
They will draw on the platforms approach used for the first time in a recent project in London, and examples of creative technology solutions that are being applied globally in transport infrastructure and the data center sector.
They will illustrate how warp-speed progress in rapid engineering modeling, digital configurators, and reference design is irreversibly changing architecture, engineering, and construction, and offer some ways in which companies can avoid being left behind.
Design to Value
Using the combined powers of data, construction technology, and imagination to establish the most effective solutions for complex buildings, Bryden Wood has led major design and construction projects in pharmaceutical and process facilities, data centers, aviation, healthcare, education, residential, water infrastructure, and transportation infrastructure.
Now operating from eight offices worldwide, Bryden Wood has become widely known as a global disruptor for pioneering new approaches in the design and construction sector that seek to transform how value is generated, enhanced, and retained in the built realm.
Join Jaimie Johnston and John Dyson as they begin at the roots of the company’s innovation story to discuss Bryden Wood’s Design to Value philosophy. Seeking to create deep and lasting impacts on industry, society, and the planet, Design to Value rejects the industry’s current professional services model. Jaimie and John will draw on their decades of experience, share successes and learnings through pivotal projects and client relationships, and map out a new, dynamic route to industrialized construction.
Machine Learning & Artificial Learning Intelligence: Opportunities & Threats to Design Practice
Join Phil Bernstein as he explores how big data and machine learning might change the structure and approach of design practice, exploring both opportunities for performative improvement and threats to the agency of architects. What strategies might design professionals adopt to take maximum advantage of these new technologies?
Innovation 2050: Building Owner's Perspectives
How do Building Owners think about Innovation? Innovation will improve many of today’s environmental, efficiency, and worker safety challenges. So why aren’t we seeing more innovation? What are the obstacles for an owner to embrace true innovation?
Accelerating Innovation at the Core of a Business: The Bosch Story
Dr. Peters, the Global Head of Smart Sensors & Hardware Systems at Bosch Research will share how this company keeps innovation at the core of its business. For over a century, Bosch has invested deeply in research and innovation. What can the design and construction industry learn from this strategy?
The Ukraine: Living Under Siege While Planning for Peace
In the midst of war, remarkable stories of innovation and hope have emerged from Ukraine.
Join us on the first day of the 2022 Fall Forum for a very special conversation with Ukrainian leaders as we discuss how people work today while developing the vision of a rebuilt country.
Software to Develop Data-Driven Design Through Optimization
Creating a carbon-free future lies in rethinking building design. Join Sandeep Ahuja as she shares the innovation story that led her to found and lead the development of a software solution cove.tool that weaves energy, daylighting, and costs analyses into a user-friendly tool that is disrupting the design world.
Using Prevention through Design (PtD) to Create a Safer Construction Industry
Prevention through Design (PtD) aims to improve safety and health through the elimination of hazards before they exist on the job site. This webinar provides a wide-ranging overview of PtD in the construction industry, including its foundational support, examples of safe designs, and guidance for practical application.
With John Gambatese, PhD, PE(CA):
John is a Professor at the School of Civil and Construction Engineering at Oregon State University. His research is in the broad area of construction engineering and management, and more specifically related to safety, prevention through design, work zone safety, risk and reward, innovation, and sustainable and lean practices.
Innovation is the New Risk Management
It has taken two decades to achieve cultural buy-in, shared best practices, and a collaborative forward approach to risk management in the AEC industry. Yet today, many still struggle with cultural and behavioral implications and proving the return on investment. This session will use lessons learned from prior disruptive initiatives in construction to forecast what we can expect for innovation, and then draw a roadmap for the future sustainability of the construction industry and beyond.
