One of the three first builders to implement drone technology on our jobsites, Windover has been using drones for nearly all projects for the past few years. Drone expert, and Windover Vice President of VDC & Technology, Amr Raafat, continues to push the envelope by discovering new ways to utilize the technology in conjunction with
Windover’s Vice President of VDC & Technology and 2019 Autodesk Innovator of the Year, Amr Raafat, joins Neil Sandler in his podcast Measure This!. Amr’s novel use of BIM and implementation with technologies such as drone mapping, virtual reality, mixed reality, laser scanning, and robotics–helped him become the first U.S. citizen to receive this honor.
This past fall Amr Raafat received Global recognition for his pioneering efforts in VDC and construction technology as he was honored as the AEC Autodesk 2019 Innovator of the Year. Amr was selected from a diverse group of 41 finalists from around the world. This award recognizes a person who is leading, changing, and transforming the
The BIM framework coupled with other VDC technologies is bringing greater efficiencies for projects using modular and prefab building components. In this feature for Archinect.com, Senior Project Manager Derrick Seitz and Vice President of VDC & Technology Amr Raafat share their expertise on BIM and modular construction in the context of the recently completed Canvas project, a 153,000 SF
The Weissman Foundry at Babson College was recognized this year in ENR’s 2019 top regional work round-up with an Award of Merit for Higher Education/Research. The Foundry earned this great honor due to Windover’s innovative sequencing plan to deliver on a challenging project schedule and the use of virtual design & construction technologies for design
This past fall, Windover received two Autodesk AEC Execellence Awards, one of the most prestigious honors for innovation in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC). Amr Raafat, Vice President of VDC and Technology was named 2019 Innovator of the Year, an international award recognizing an individual that is leading, changing, and transforming the design and/or construction
The use of drone technology is becoming more and more mainstream. So much so that these days the sound of that unnatural buzzing overhead hardly provokes more than a casual glance upwards. Everyone from Amazon to Uber is touting their use – or future use – of drones to enhance and expand their service offerings.
The Furniture Trust’s 2019 Eco-Carpentry Challenge An old, worn fabric remnant gave nautical inspiration to our visionary team when it came time to develop a concept for the 2019 Eco-Carpentry Challenge. This piece of fabric, among many other materials, had been salvaged from a commercial office fit-out and with our team’s great imagining, soon would be taking sail
Our multi-family project at 211 Rantoul Street is progressing quickly thanks to the use of prefabricated modular sections and BIM technology. As compared to conventional construction, it is estimated that the overall construction schedule for this project has been shortened by three months by using modular!
