Virtual Design and Construction Staff Phil Nagle and Neale Whitehead of Welty Building Company will discuss various innovative technologies and processes the can be used throughout the design and construction of a project. These tools are focused on enhancing collaboration between teams, reducing material and financial waste, and creating a safe and efficient work environment for everyone involved on the project. The tools that will be covered in the presentation include 3D laser scanners, virtual reality, fully-integrated BIM to prefabrication, and field observation techniques for continuous improvement. Technical examples will be shown from Akron Children’s Hospital projects to illustrate the benefit of the processes, discuss team member feedback, and explain lessons learned through the developmental journey.

After the course presentation, the session will allow users to interact and engage with these technologies to see their benefit first-hand. Equipment will be setup at different stations within the room, and the group will cycle through the stations to observe, experience, openly discuss the various tools in operation.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify how 3D laser scanners and drones are used to capture existing conditions, generate models that can merged with other design data, and review content in various platforms to aid in streamlined programming and design.
  • Investigate the tools and workflow associated with virtual reality, and identify value-added functions in development of design with active involvement of building occupants to ensure their spaces are designed to provide the best care.
  • Describe how a fully integrated model can be leveraged for precise layout and prefabrication of building components to reduce material waste, improve quality of construction, and reduce worker strain.
  • Identify various construction observation techniques and analysis procedures to capture current state of activities on site for collaborative team review, and explore improvements that focus on worker safety, efficiency, and quality of work in adherence to design documents.
