150 North Dearborn Street
Chicago, IL 60601


There’s a fine line between transformation and disruption when implementing new technology solutions. Digital tools like drones, laser scanning, & BIM collaboration provide innumerable data points, but the value of that information depends on how your firm is leveraging it. This program will break down the latest technology trends impacting the AEC industry through case study examples of what’s working, and what’s not. Prepare to discuss your experiences with digital collaboration by sharing your experiences and perspectives in a roundtable discussion. We will identify “low-hanging fruit" opportunities for design and construction professionals to change traditional process through integrated technology solutions that positively impact everyone's bottom line.
