He received his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering with an emphasis in Construction Management from Clemson University. During his 8-year career as a virtual construction manager he has worked on all types of projects such as Mixed-Use , Historical Renovations, High Rise, Higher Education, K-12, etc. using technology to solve workflow challenges in the industry. Some of those iconic projects have been the Steven Tanger for the Performing Arts Center, Fuquay-Varina HS, The Dillon, Durham ID and 400-H. In addition, Whitelock is a regular guest lecturer at Clemson University, NC State, and ECU teaching students on Virtual Design & Construction in Practice. He is also regular presenter of AGC (Associated General Contractors of America) CM-BIM Program in the US. Cody assists the next generation of AEC students learn the industry in his efforts in STEM Outreach programs including the ACE Mentor Program teaching high school students to pursue careers in AEC Careers using project-based mentorship. He currently works on the on the UNC Kenan School of Business Addition in Chapel Hill, NC and is leading Barnhill's Building Technology Committee/Drone Operations Team in Raleigh, NC.
What to expect during the event
In the construction industry, one of the biggest challenges is constructability of complex projects while implementing coordination practices that translate to the field. Revizto, Evercam, and Cmbuilder give contractors, engineers, architects, and subcontractors the opportunity to collaborate in a common environment for constructability/coordination/site logistics while allowing them to use multiple different authoring tools such as Revit, AutoCAD, Infraworks, Civil 3D, etc. and different Reality Capture data such as Laser scans, Drones (Aerial Photogrammetry), Total Stations Points, 360 Photos, and Fixed based Construction Cameras can be incorporated in the review process. As workforces become more diverse and delegated in this new AEC world, working together to design buildings as an AEC team becomes much more challenging. Cloud-based products like Revizto, Evercam, and Cmbuilder are removing many of the barriers to connect and collaborate with remote team members. This cloud connected capabilities of these technologies are enabling users to step away from the office while maintaining connectivity with their teams with limited interruption in productivity. By doing so they spend less time on the repetitive tasks and more energy on the important parts of the constructability process. In this class, you will learn how this technology can support your constructability reviews and project coordination workflows for better project collaboration and job productivity.
