Here’s a great event on iPads in construction that I’d encourage both contractors and owners in the New England area to attend. AGC member and non-members are welcome!
On Thursday, March 8, 2012 from 8:30AM – 10:00AM at the AGC Conference Center in Wellesley, MA, the AGC IT Committee of the AGC of Massachusetts, The Association of Commercial & Institutional Builders, is sponsoring a discussion on iPads in construction, with construction industry leaders and IT professionals. The event is apply named “iPad Superusers.”
The iPad Superusers event will focus on the best apps or applications for the iPad in construction and in field management, such as quality (QA/QC), safety, documents to the field, commissioning (Cx), handover, and Field BIM – delivering BIM to the field for field superintendents, field engineers, and other field personnel, without having to be a trained BIM-expert or a seasoned VDC (Virtual Design and Construction) engineer.
The goal is to better understand how apps, coupled with mobile technologies such as iPads in the field, on the jobsite, and at the point of construction, unlock new forms of value and create ROI for builders, contractors, construction managers, and owners alike -- enabling collaboration, driving productivity, increasing profitability, reducing risk, and facilitating handover.
Chuck Vaciliou from Erland Construction will moderate the discussion for the AGC IT Committee. Additionally, Paul Maclelland from Vela Systems will demonstrate field management software, including the Vela Mobile: iPad app, delivering BIM to the field for field management programs.
