Efficiency, safety and sustainability within the construction industry are taking leaps forward as technology continues to improve.
The 21st century has brought a plethora of new advancements in technology to the construction sector. From super concrete to 3D printing, construction is seeing improvements in recent years that will help change and shape the future of the industry.
An article titled “Top 10 Construction Technology Trends” in Construction Global (www.constructionglobal.com) highlights a few of the upcoming trends that those in construction should watch out for. These include revolutionary advancements including aerogel insulation, machine learning and predictive analytics.
“Often, the difference between a successful company and a struggling one, lies in the ability to manage risk,” the article states. “The introduction of predictive analysis is about to make risk management much easier. The software analyses data from subcontractors, materials suppliers, design plans, and the site itself to examine risk factors and flag any potential dangers to avoid issues further down the line.”
According to an article published in Construction World (www.constructionworld.org) titled “The Top 10 Construction Technology Trends to Watch for in 2018,” cloud and mobile technologies are becoming mandatory in the construction sector.
“The sky is the limit for cloud devices as more people know the advantages, including essentially limitless amounts of data that can be stored and shared instantly with the touch of a button, and at about the tenth of the cost of old sharing technologies. It is accessible from anywhere that is connected online. This technology will go from being preferred in the construction industry to becoming mandatory in order to remain competitive in the market.”
