Turner Mining Group Improves Operational Efficiencies with Drone Solutions
We live in a world where data is increasingly available and at our fingertips. The ability to collect it is also becoming easier and more cost effective, especially with drone technology. But what do we do with it? How do we use it effectively? In this presentation, we will discuss how Turner Mining Group has improved their operations by going beyond just data. They take the insights they receive and turn it into business intelligence that they use to make key operational decisions and improve operational efficiencies.

Site Management with Augmented Reality Technology (S.M.A.R.T)
Standard construction management technologies are an inefficient utilization of modern tools for coordination, documentation, and acceleration during construction. S.M.A.R.T technology allows efficiency and enables communication with the team anywhere in the world. This class will showcase the case study of a $1.6 billion airport project and how smart technology was implemented to streamline the construction process through Virtual and Augmented reality. Attendees will see first-hand how a 4K, 360 degree camera was used to scan and produce point-clouds for existing conditions, virtually document punch lists and record imaging for archiving. In addition, attendees will learn how smart glasses were integrated with Autodesk BIM 360 tools to review 3D models in current field conditions while virtually collaborating with designers, engineers, contractor, and clients concurrently.
Technology Case Study: Achieve Streamlined Estimating, Budget Maintenance and Forecasting While Eliminating Communication Failures
Children’s Hospital & Medical Center (CHMC) Hubbard Center project is located in Omaha, Nebraska. The project consists of adding 426,000 square feet to the existing hospital and the construction of a new 750-stall parking garage. The hospital addition is a $292 million Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) contract, and the parking garage is a $28 million Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) contract. From the beginning this team committed to innovation and cutting-edge methods starting with the collaborative IPD contracting approach to optimize project results, increase value, reduce waste, and maximize efficiency through all phases of design and construction. Robb Steffes, Senior Project Manager at Kiewit, and Megan Siefker, Client Solution Manager with InEight, will share how Kiewit is using the latest software technology on the Children’s Hospital & Medical Center to: aggressively manage budgets, capture accurate costs, and collaborate through an integrated document control solution. They will provide further insight into how they are streamlining the entire estimating process, providing real-time budget management and forecasting, boosting operational efficiency with mobile solutions and eliminating communication failures across the entire project team.
