PCL Construction | September 29, 2020
PCL Construction is pleased to announce that Webcor Construction, #36 on the ENR Top 100, has selected PCL's Job Site Insights™ (JSI™) smart construction platform to enable the future of construction on its job sites. Changing environmental conditions are one of the biggest challenges and risks to construction sites and workforces. JSI™ is a custom-built Internet of Things (IoT) platform that enables real-time data-driven insights in the field leveraging IoT sensors that continuously monitor environmental conditions in the field. PCL is continually looking for ways to enhance the safety, quality and schedule of its construction projects while reducing costs. Forming strategic partnerships that can drive construction processes towards a technologically-advanced future can enhance the industry as a whole. "By monitoring things like temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, water leak detection, concrete strength, sound, vibration, gases, and energy consumption to name a few, we can dramatically alter and enhance how construction is done today," said PCL's CIO, Mark Bryant. "Job Site Insights™ is the leading smart construction platform in the industry. By reducing costly rework, improving build quality, and making improvements to productivity, safety and energy efficiency we can rewrite the history book of construction," said Bryant. "Additionally, use of JSI™ reduces manual labor costs, and drives down insurance claims and premiums making it a "must have" for all budget-conscious construction organizations.
Dunwoody | March 10, 2022
Dunwoody College of Technology, a private, non-profit university and pioneer in technical education announced its Power & Construction Engineering Technology program. The program offers an online bachelor's degree completion option for electrical graduates interested in advancing their careers as electrical construction engineers, electrical design engineers, senior project managers, estimators, drafters, or solar energy systems engineers. Prospective students may enroll now for classes beginning in the fall of 2022.
Electrical Engineering Technology is a specialized field of electrical engineering that focuses on the built environment, from vertical and horizontal structures to infrastructure, including utilities. Transfer students with a two-year degree in electrical construction or electrical design are eligible for the online program, which offers part-time and full-time alternatives. Students will participate in synchronous or asynchronous classes via the Canvas Learning Management System and Microsoft Teams.
"At Dunwoody, we work closely alongside partners to understand the skills and training needed to fulfill the hiring pipeline ensuring that our students are the strongest candidates for the job, Through extensive industry research, we identified a need for electrical and solar system engineers and are proud to offer the Power & Construction Engineering Technology program to current and future students. Innovative pilot programs like this one help transform our learners into leaders and students into collaborators and creative problem solvers."
Polly Friendshuh, Dean of Construction Sciences & Building Technology
Dunwoody's new curriculum focuses on advanced control system design, building and energy codes, and advanced project management training. Students enrolled in the B.S. program in Power & Construction Engineering Technology will acquire and practice skills using industry-standard software such as AutoCAD, Revit, Microstation, Accubid, and Navisworks. Additionally, the program covers construction legislation, construction accounting, integrated field technologies, sustainable energy design, and the Internet of Things (Internet of Things). Enrolled students receive a laptop computer from Dunwoody with all the required software to complete the program.
Additionally, the program's final semester includes a senior capstone project that allows students to exhibit industry-relevant experience, emphasizing commercial building, utilities, or both.
