Welcome & Introduction

3:15pm – 3:45pm
KEYNOTE: It’s Time For a Connected Built Environment

Jesse Devitte, Managing Partner, Borealis Ventures  

It is no longer possible nor sustainable to build and operate according to the status quo. Reality calls for fewer discrete AEC software applications and more data exchange solutions, mobile devices and a widely accessible cloud infrastructure. The promise of the future is a more connected and data-informed built environment.

3:45pm – 4:45pm
PANEL DISCUSSION: The Data Ecosystem

Jake Macholtz and Johnny Clemmons will discuss how Kiewit is going well beyond 4D and 5D to provide a visual aspect to everything on the project, from mobile status, to procurement, to equipment maintenance, to take-offs and estimating and beyond. German Aparicio will present on the use of data analytics and visualization in project management on one of the largest construction projects in the world. The presentation will describe ways to implement similar technologies and scale them for projects of any size. Kristopher Lengieza will demonstrate ways to free your data and use programs such as PowerBI and Tableau to analyze and communicate to team members by embedding metrics and dashboards into any browser. He says, to get the most out of your data, ask better questions.
