Image-Based Construction: How Industry Leaders Are Blazing a New Trail

The leap from paper-based construction management to digital-powered construction management has been swift and powerful. But the change isn’t stopping there. Industry leaders are embracing a new shift to image-based construction.

Reality capture—using 360° images—makes it possible to integrate the latest job site conditions into project workflows in a way that wasn’t possible before. Allowing key stakeholders to see as-built conditions when not physically present on-site means teams can move faster and stay on schedule. In this on-demand webinar, you’ll learn how image-based construction makes tasks and processes easier, builds accountability and transparency, avoids waste and rework, enables remote project management, and improves collaboration.

Watch this on-demand webinar to:

  • Learn about image-based construction and its many benefits for GCs, owners, and trades.
  • Discover best practices in image-based construction from a panel of industry experts and hands-on tips that you can start to apply today.
  • Understand how the latest technologies are simplifying routine tasks like scheduling crews, submitting RFIs, verifying invoices, and managing OAC and coordination meetings.
  • Gain valuable perspectives on the future of image-based construction.
