Reviewing the Value of Technology to Drive High Performing Teams: What Does a Good ROI Look Like?

• Hearing how to work with owners, designers and other project partners to define shared goals and metrics at the beginning and set up processes to make decisions and resolve issues on the job site

• Evaluating the holistic value and ROI that technology brings to the production system: breaking the silos of reviewing safety, quality or schedule benefits independently

• Exploring how technology enthusiasts can identify the right metrics, measure value and communicate convincingly to company executives the case for further investment in tools and innovation

Ready Builder 1: The power of gaming professionals in the construction industry
Lucas Richmond, Gilbane Building Company
Description: With the speed of technology in construction Gilbane is leveraging the talents of Gaming professionals to produce some of the industry’s best immersive experiences for our clients. We are shortening the decision-making process in design and construction with these powerful artists and their tools by immersing the end user into their virtual spaces and giving them the power to design in real time which saves everyone time and money. Gilbane has been building gaming models in the construction industry for more than 10 years and, with the advent of VR/AR, our models were a natural fit to these new technologies.
Learning Objective 1: With this new technology, attendees will understand the amount of time and money savings instantly while creating and using real time technology.

Structured Light Scans vs. Lidar (Laser Scan): Differentiating the Value Streams
Chad Knutson & Alexander Rayis, Gilbane Building Company
Description: Traditional laser scanning has proven its value with quality and accuracy of the data collected and will remain “the standard” for many uses on construction projects.  The downside to Lidar is cost, file size, and the speed of data collection.  Structured light scan implementation adds value where Lidar scans would not be practical; time savings, affordable technology, and easy cloud storage. This is ideal for smaller projects that do not require high dimensional accuracy, but understanding and communication is the goal.  I will discuss the delineation of uses where each type of scan saves time and money.
Learning Objective 1: Understand the difference between Lidar and Structured Light Scans
Learning Objective 2: Understand the differentiated value proposition for the use of each type of scan
