Sir Robert McAlpine have been at the forefront of the transition to project data analytics. They have a vision that is helping to shape the industry. Grant Findlay has taken a leading role in mapping out this vision, from shaping the strategy for the Project Data Analytics Task Force through to chairing the Construction Data Trust. He is also championing transformational change within his business, with partners and in the wider supply chain.
Grant will set out why and how he believes the profession needs to change, the potential prize available to us and share insights into his journey so far. Although his challenge is focused on the construction industry, the insights will be applicable to every sector that aspires to transition towards data driven project delivery.
Register here - Insights from the US: AI construction institute to reality capture solutions. | Meetup
The US National Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Construction will create the first-of-its-kind institute for the application of AI in design, construction and operation of buildings and infrastructure systems. Mani Golparvar, Associate Professor of Civil Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology Entrepreneurship at University of Illinois has been a key part of the creation of the institute. Mani will provide an overview of their journey so far, aspirations and how the institute fits within other US developments in the field of project data analytics.
In the 2nd part of his presentation Mani will present how reality capture and BIM data can be processed to form a visual production management system for achieving production efficiency on construction sites. Specifically, he will present how images and videos from 360-degree cameras, smartphones and drones can be used within computer vision algorithms to automatically generate 3D reality models of indoor and outdoor environments over a project timeline. He will also demonstrate how measurable reality models can be integrated with BIM and project schedules in the form of digital twins such that AI algorithms can track progress and productivity and identify risk for potential delays.
A great opportunity to gain insights into the latest developments in the US and specifically, the latest in reality capture, BIM and schedule integration.
Mani Golparvar is the CTO and Co-founder of Reconstruct Inc., a Software-as-a-Service company that integrates reality modeling, BIM and project scheduling to visually track progress, analyze productivity, and proactively detect potential delays using predictive analytics. He is also Associate Professor of Civil Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology Entrepreneurship at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His work in the area of computer vision, machine learning, and BIM has been the recipient of many numerous awards including 2018 Walter Huber Research Prize from ASCE, 2017 National Top 20 Under 40 from ENR; 2017 Hojjat Adeli Innovation in Civil Engineering from Wiley and 2016 Dan Halpin Award for Scholarship in Construction from ASCE. Reconstruct has also been recognized by several awards such as Crunchbase’s 50 hot tech companies globally in 2019, 2016 World Economic Forum most innovative startup company and 2016 Innovation Award from Turner Construction.

Project data is different from ordinary data; there is more qualitative data and fewer quantitative measures. Timelines are really important and there are many more dates; e.g. project and task start, and completion, milestone dates. This creates challenges in analysing the data. For example we often need to calculate what happens between two dates rather than on a date. What we measure is also different, capacity, availability and demand, as well as the t

09 November 2021, 12:00 PM 02:00 PM After a very successful 2 prior events, we bring to you the 3rd and final 2021 Project Data Analytics Starter Kit with James Smith, PhD on November 9th.
He will be walking you through all the components of project data analytics, through the lens of a project delivery professional. Many existing roles will look radically different in a few years time; for some it will be a matter of adapt or become obsolete.
Project Data Analytics can be used to support project delivery through:
