Innovation Through Acceptable Failure | EP. 020

We dive into all things construction with Dan Smolilo this week. He is the Director of Process and Innovation at the Walsh Group. Here we go!

We talk with Dan about the balance between analog and digital innovations in the construction industry. We dig into what projects need technology and which are better suited for a pen to paper approach.

We learn why we should give our employees some freedom to explore new technologies, how big data is going to drive the future of the industry and the difference between acceptable and unacceptable failure.

*Note: [20:12 on the subject of smart glazing, Dan went on to say, “When using smart glazing, designers are able to do run an analysis on their model to eliminate the need for expensive smart glazing systems.”
