This guide discusses how the construction industry is ripe for disruption and how technological advances will boost productivity, increase transparency, reduce cost, and prepare for more sustainable and eco-friendly buildings.
In nearly every field of construction, agencies are using GIS technology to get accurate representations of data and locational considerations.
3D modeling and Building Information Modeling (BIM)
The use of BIM reported shorter project life cycles and savings on paperwork and
Drones can be used to record images and videos, survey, inspect, and manage construction sites. It can provide a quick and easy way to surveil job sites, improve security, and curtail theft.
Augmented reality (AR)
Construction workplace fatalities costs can be significantly reduced with safety training programs through AR.
This cutting-edge technology can review, analyze, and instantly categorize comments for you based on each comment’s sentiment and feedback.
IoT will make your entire capital program work together more effortlessly by connecting and exchanging data with other devices and systems over the internet or other communications networks.
Mobile & cloud technology
Cloud-based software systems allow you to save and access crucial documents, contracts, approvals, and more in one location.
It can use real-time data to manage and update a physical asset through the
cloud, optimize schedules, stay on top of details, and ensure safety.
Implementing sustainable design, engineering, and construction practices will power relevant data to track, measure, and reduce emissions and waste throughout the project life cycle.
While still in the infancy stages of development, 3D printing at a large scale can produce submodules and concrete structures to be assembled on-site.
With prefabricated buildings, factory-made components or units are transported and assembled on-site to form the complete structure.
