As Construction Technology Manager for Rogers-O’Brien Construction, Todd Wynne is responsible for the implementation of new technologies and developing innovative processes to advance the company’s methods of building. Todd’s interest in construction technology started early in his career when he introduced several innovative solutions to his project teams while working on the Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas and then the Forest Park Hospital in Frisco, Texas.
Joining Rogers-O’Brien Construction where he is known by the operations staff as “the iPad Guy,” Todd is on a mission to get accurate data to workers with “wrench in hand.” He does this by seeking out and researching the latest mobile hardware and software applications, and developing simple procedures to effectively apply usage and ensure interoperability of all technologies. Innovations introduced by Todd include Digital Documents, now implemented throughout Rogers-O’Brien, and the use of project based communication platforms that capture project team correspondence, record progress and track quality compliance.
Over the last 3 years, Todd has been key to Rogers-O’Brien’s reputation as a technology leader in the construction industry. He has been a noted construction technology speaker at ENR FutureTech, BIM Forum, Texas Society of Architects, Apple, OSHA, American Subcontractors Association, AIA and numerous other BIM symposiums. Todd was an original Google Glass beta tester, and has been published in leading industry outlets including Construction Executive, Building Design + Construction and Engineering News-Record.
