Topcon Speakers to Hold Construction Validation Classes at Autodesk University

Livermore, Calif., U.S. – November 9, 2018 – Topcon Positioning Group is participating in the 2018 Autodesk University conference in Las Vegas. At the annual event, Andrew Evans, Topcon product manager for mass data, will host a class titled Construction validation faster than the speed of light. The class will highlight how new advances in technology have made near-real-time construction validation possible. Additionally, Topcon representatives will take part in the Connect and Construct Summit early bird session.

Evans said, “Today, vertical construction contractors have access to near-real-time validation utilizing a combination of hardware and software solutions, enabling site engineers to complete day-to-day validation tasks in a third of the time that was previously required. This has resulted in huge time and cost savings with mistakes and project hold-ups avoided.”

Evans will also join Lisa Duncan, Topcon director of vertical construction, in the Connect and Construct pre-conference event to host a class titled Preconstruction and Layout: Featuring Assemble, Sigma Estimates and Topcon. “This class will explore keys to unlock better workflows and provide actionable advice that attendees can bring back to their teams and implement on projects for immediate results,” said Duncan.

Autodesk University expects to host more than 10,000 industry professional attendees from the construction, manufacturing, architecture, and engineering fields.

Evans’ session is scheduled for Wednesday, November 14, from 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. in the Marcello 4406 room on level four.

The pre-conference early bird event is scheduled for Monday, November 12, from 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. in Palazzo N on level five.

Topcon personnel will be exhibiting vertical construction solutions and more throughout the conference at booth B739.
