It’s impossible to know everything about construction, especially as the industry evolves at such a rapid clip. It makes continued learning a path worth following. In fact, whether it’s a single webinar or larger event, skilling up tends to pay off in dividends.
So, whether you’re learning new things yourself, or sending this list to your team, here’s ten of our most popular on-demand construction webinars from all of 2021. As you look through, it’s not surprising that software supporting tighter digital workflows continues to gain steam (as was the case for most industries).
You’ll find a diverse spread of topics relevant to general contractors, subcontractors, and owners. There’s webinars for designers, precon managers, estimators, BIM/VDC specialists, project execs, project managers, field teams, and more.
These webinars are free to watch whenever you have time so make sure to bookmark this article and come back if you don’t have time now. About 15 minutes of each webinar is dedicated to post-presentation discussion so they are actually shorter than they seem at a glance. Lastly, since the topics cover different areas of construction, and are fit for different types of roles, they’re in no particular order.
