Small Unmanned Aerial Systems: Keep Your Drones From Going Rogue

Are you flying a drone without a pilot’s license? Laugh if you will, but the Federal Aviation Administration adopted rules recently to regulate the commercial operation of drones. Drones offer extensive benefits to all the parties involved in construction projects, but drones are not mere off-the-shelf toys that you can take out of their boxes and fire up for use. For better or worse, operating a drone is legally considered operating an aircraft in U.S. airspace, with all the attendant regulatory burdens and legal risks.

Using Lean Techniques for Measurable Productivity Gains

While many of us are familiar with the concepts, few of us have taken the time to actually attempt to implement lean construction techniques, often due to misconceptions that it is a total project commitment. James Choo and Roberto Arbulu of Strategic Project Solutions Inc. show how lean construction can be implemented, with the level of optimization determined by what you want to achieve. Some prefab and logistics planning is better done and implemented ahead of the project starting, but lean construction can be implemented at multiple levels. Join Choo and Arbulu to learn more about synchronizing supply with installation, logistics design, production control, prefabrication and virtual operations design, and other lean concepts you

can apply to your project.

Traditional Productivity Improvement Techniques

Construction productivity expert Michael Casten presents his views and techniques for development and management of productivity improvement. The average construction operation underperforms production capacity by a factor of three or four times. Careful study of work at the crew level will reveal massive amounts of delays, wasted effort, and inefficient and ineffective use of resources. Casten provides solutions to help project managers, supervisors, and engineers find opportunities for reengineering process and resource utilization that can almost immediately double the output of many operations.

An Introduction to Subcontractor Default Insurance

For many years, owners and general contractors have looked for cost-effective alternatives to the traditional payment/performance surety bonds, three-way agreements in which a surety guarantees to one party the performance and/or payment of another party. A new subcontractor default insurance (SDI) product, issued by Zurich Insurance under the name of Subguard, has emerged as a viable alternative that protects an owner and general contractor from the consequences of a defaulting subcontractor while eliminating many of the delays and other problems associated with traditional surety bonds. This interactive program will provide you with a firm understanding of subcontractor default insurance, including coverage parameters, exclusions, and other important information.
