State-of-the-art and emerging design and construction technologies are opening up opportunities for a profound restructuring of the design and construction process with dramatic performance improvements of the completed facility and the design-construction process. This talk will summarize which state-of-the-art technologies can be used with confidence and success in practice today, highlight emerging tools and technology trends, and show how these technologies are supporting integrated practice.
