    Safety Culture & Technology: The Keys of Risk Prevention

    Tue Oct 12, 10:00 AM – 10:30 AM PDT

    Shawmut Design and Construction has seen firsthand the progress that results from coupling a culture of safety with technology. From 2019 to 2020, the firm saw a 22% increase in engagement in its safety program and a 53% reduction in OSHA recordable incidents. This year, they’re on track to pilot eight new software and hardware solutions—from subcontractor pre-mobilization safety workflow to wearable technology. In this presentation, Shawmut Chief Safety Officer Shaun Carvalho will share how to establish a culture of safety—from developing policies and procedures to launching initiatives—to engage an entire company.

    Grow Your Career Beyond Your Job Title

    Tue Oct 12, 10:35 AM – 11:05 AM PDT

    Education doesn’t stop once you leave the classroom. Whether you’re working in the field or from the office there are infinite opportunities to learn from your peers. Everyone you encounter can be seen as a teacher, and it’s up to you to take advantage of these learning opportunities for your own career development. In this session, you’ll hear from two industry veterans who have held numerous positions throughout their careers and have mastered how to advocate for their career development. They’ll share their tried-and-true tactics for learning as much as possible from each role and how that directly equates to being valued for all of the skills they bring to their jobs.

    Improve Cash Flow by Connecting Your Project and Accounting Teams

    Tue Oct 12, 10:35 AM – 11:05 AM PDT

    Hear from Marathon Electrical Contractors and Dolan Concrete about how they are leveraging Procore’s mobile change management and real-time cost management solutions as specialty contractors to improve cash flow and achieve financial health.

    Healthy cash flow is not a new challenge to the construction industry; but it’s one of the most important challenges that contractors need to solve in order to grow their businesses in a post-pandemic world. For specialty contractors that are looking for ways to scale, it all starts with better cost management practices that increase visibility for finance teams so they can make better decisions. This starts at the project level—enabling all project stakeholders to streamline and standardize operational procedures that provide finance teams with the right information at the right time, causing a domino effect towards healthy cash flow.

    Boost Your Labor Productivity With The Right Tools And Workflows

    Tue Oct 12, 1:05 PM – 1:35 PM PDT

    Gain insight from a diverse group of mechanical contractors on how they are applying Procore’s solutions and enhanced workflows to the lifecycle of construction––applying small, but powerful process changes that increase productivity, team morale, time savings, and profitability.

    By equipping your field and office teams with the tools and connected workflows purpose-built for their environments, you can have a transformative effect on labor productivity. As Procore’s platform expands and redefines what collaboration looks like, your field and office teams can leverage the velocity of information and their ability to take action on that information to remove crippling inefficiencies and increases their ability to keep talent, materials, and cash flow moving.

    This session will feature streamlined project turnover, the advantages of leveraging a combination of 2D and 3D views in the field, insight into how to achieve real-time labor costing, and streamlined resource management through Procore’s platform ecosystem.

    The Story Your Data Can Tell

    Wed Oct 13, 9:35 AM – 10:05 AM PDT

    Ryan Companies, ENR 42, has been building stories across the country for the past 100 years and, in recent years, has been investing in technology to aid them in their storytelling. No stranger to Procore, Ryan Co has been leveraging Procore as the central hub of their construction business process for several years and adopted StructionSite in 2019 to standardize their jobsite documentation processes, taking further advantage of the platform ecosystem that Procore created. The data collected throughout the pursuit process all the way through closeout tells a deeper story than the final designed product itself. Join Ryan Company’s Lisa Leighton and StructionSite’s Chris Jervey for a conversation about how this platform-first mentality has enriched the data story collected throughout the construction building process.

    Project Technology Plans – Improving Coordination between IT and Project Teams

    Wed Oct 13, 10:10 AM – 10:40 AM PDT

    Construction project teams move quickly and can sometimes leave their IT counterparts in the dust scrambling to resolve issues––resulting in frustration on both sides. In this session, presenters will look at the issue from both perspectives, and discuss how to use technology to reduce complexity on the jobsite instead of adding to it.
