By using these advancements to inform and predict project budgets before they break ground, Federal practitioners can be better equipped to stay focused on agency mission and maximize limited funding. View this webcast as industry and government experts explore:

  • How agencies can better estimate their construction projects leveraging industry expertise and innovation
  • Which new construction technologies, such as cloud computing and AI, drive more accuracy and consistency in project workflow development
