Webinar Series Overview

We’re excited to kickoff AGC’s IT Conference Webinar Series this fall. If you missed the IT Conference, or had to choose between two sessions, here’s your opportunity to catch those dynamic speakers during this series.

We scheduled two webinars each day, for a total of eight webinars.

Your registration covers access to all webinars, and is complimentary for attendees of the 2021 IT Conference.

Webinar One: Avoiding Mistakes with Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) for Defense Contractors

October 26, 2021 at 2PM (EST)

CMMC is a new mandatory regulation affecting all 400,000+ prime and subcontractors providing services to the Department of Defense.  Many believe this standard will expand to other government agencies and to commercial companies.  Failing to comply will prevent contractors from being able to bid on new or renew existing DoD contracts.  Many contractors are unprepared or understaffed to address CMMC.

Use BIM for more than visualization and spatial coordination! This session will look at how to take the “flat” information (shop drawings, cut sheets, emails) that come from several different sources on a construction project and incorporate it into an intelligent, working model.

Webinar Four: Equipment Management – the Next Frontier for Construction Technology
November 16, 2021 at 2PM (EST)

You’ve heard of BIM and VDC. You’ve heard and invested in technologies that help manage your people and projects. But have you heard from construction companies that are leading the next frontier in construction equipment management technology?

Webinar Five: Turn the Pandemic into Your (Practical) Innovation Catalyst
November 16, 2021 at 3PM (EST)

Before the pandemic, digitization was often put off because it was rare to find tools that fit perfectly into your company’s processes.
But COVID forced many companies to react. Changes were forced in the field (goodbye paper!)... and the office (hello remote collaboration!). 

Now, construction companies of all sizes are making moves to catch up and get ahead of the next wave of change. This session will share how firms have created platforms (over buying off-the-shelf) that have scaled their operations and continue to future-proof their business.

We’ll pull back the curtain on the process of building in-house software tools that fit your workflows (not the other way around).

See how contractors increase operational efficiency and ditch the clunky workarounds for automation between systems. Learn how to leverage existing data for 1-click reporting and KPI dashboards.

Webinar Eight: New Trends in Last Mile Jobsite Connectivity
December 7, 2021 at 3PM (EST)

The future is the connected jobsite, but who is making sure the jobsite is connected? As technology adoption, the number of connected devices, and the need for real-time updates on construction jobsites rapidly grow, the underlying supporting infrastructure is essential. This session will focus on techniques and best practices contractors can leverage to establish and maintain connectivity as a cornerstone of technology implementation on the jobsite.
