Technology for Secure Job Sites

Technology for Secure Job Sites

NOW AVAILABLE ON DEMAND

Reducing risk on the jobsite begins by controlling the perimeter fence and entry gate, and on big projects with large workforces just managing that can turn into a huge, daily proposition. Contractors are increasingly turning to software and systems that use electronic tags or biometric devices to tie entry permission directly to HR databases that validate employee status and rapidly clear the entries during shift changes. But having gone that far, they are beginning to see safety value in applying the same technologies to employee location monitoring and to monitor worker certifications and access to equipment and processes, as well as safety behavior throughout the job site, which is begging the question of just how far should this go? What’s unacceptably invasive, and what is justified in the interest of security and safety?

IPD Risks and Benefits Webinar Series

Many members of the building sector have explored and rejected integrated project delivery (IPD) because of the many complications and risks associated with IPD's multiparty contracts and new risk-sharing scenario. Instead, many contractors, designers and owners are pushing integrated delivery (ID) or collaborative delivery. Under ID, the building team adopts the collaborative behaviors of IPD without the contracting quagmire and the risks. ID is a process and operational framework, says one contractor. It can be realized under many contract types that use early team selection. It does not require complicated contracts and new insurance products and it does not blur the traditional responsibilities of the members of the building team. It also does not put members of the team at risk for the mistakes of others.

Dispelling the Myths of Fabric Building Design

Dispelling the Myths of Fabric Building Design

Available: October 22, 2014 / 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET

Fabric structures have evolved from the ice-age practice of adhering skins to sticks to modern practices that incorporate advanced engineering and installation techniques. Today’s building designs must meet requirements including flexibility, energy efficiency, construction and timeline adherence, and aesthetic concerns. Modern fabric structures are no exception.

With relentless improvements in performance, safety and speed of erection, we see the tides turning into fabric becoming another entry on the short-list of preferred materials. Although fabric is competitive with other building materials, myths about fabric’s viability persist.

Upon completing this session, you will be able to:

  • Discuss the history and evolution of fabric buildings
  • Define advantages and weaknesses in different types of tension fabric buildings
  • Identify the materials, engineering and construction of fabric buildings
  • Explain the advantages of tension fabric buildings on rigid steel frames
  • List case studies of industrial tension fabric buildings in multiple applications

Best Practices for Deploying Digital Signatures and How to Prepare for signing in the Cloud

Best Practices for Deploying Digital Signatures and How to Prepare for Signing in the Cloud

Available: NOW

AEC and EPC firms issue thousands of documents a project. Up to 40% of these documents need to be signed or sealed. The trouble is once documents are printed, signed and scanned, workflows cease to flow, causing delays to project schedules and bumping up project costs.

Finally the industry is waking up to workflow automation and digital signatures, as indicated in a recent industry survey conducted with Fiatech, March 2013. At the same time AECs are acknowledging the benefits of moving processes to the cloud, as indicated in ENR's Futuretech event this month. But with the growing popularity of web services in the cloud, AEC enterprises are confronting a new challenge – the loss of control and integrity under signature-dependent processes.

Join CoSign's John Marchioni and co-speaker Brian Hase of Agile Frameworks to discover:

  • The differences between digital and electronic signatures
  • Digital seals and signatures best practices
  • How to easily automate signature dependent processes with the proper controls and standards
  • How to maintain and inspect electronic document integrity and inspect signatory’s identity

Digital Signatures: Designing new levels of efficiency and collaboration

Available: NOW

AEC firms face increasingly fierce competition over projects as clients are demanding better, faster, and cheaper results. Digital signature technology gives firms the speed, control and competitive advantage to win much needed projects, and deliver on time and on budget.

Digital signatures replace slow and expensive paper-based approval processes with fast, efficient, and fully-electronic ones. Furthermore, digital signatures allow each engineer's contribution to be uniquely attributable and sealed from changes, thereby binding the liability to its source. This enhances internal and external collaboration among geographically dispersed engineers who can securely and compliantly sign, seal, and route drawings and other documents in minutes, rather than days. The result is enhanced quality through collaboration, faster project turnaround times, and significant savings from eliminated printing, mailing, and archiving costs.

Beyond ERP: How Project Based Solutions Provide Improved Benefits to the Integrated Project Lifecycle

Available on Demand

Project centric organizations have struggled for more than a decade to reap the kind of benefits the manufacturing industry has experienced with integrated ERP systems. The primary obstacle has been that traditional ERP systems were developed to support short, repetitive production cycles tied to a master schedule, whereas project centric companies generally have custom, Build-to-Spec projects. While ERP systems could support many of the corporate functions of a project centric organization, these companies were often forced to develop in-house applications, or modify their ERP solution in order to support their more complex business processes. Enter the Project Based Solution, which combines the integrated enterprise benefits of ERP, but are designed specifically to support the complex business processes associated with engineering, construction, EPCI contracting, fabrication, engineer-to-order, equipment installation and other more project centric organizations.
