Can Technology Replace Traditional Construction Methods in 2020?

By Construction Tech Review | Monday, January 13, 2020

It is essential to leverage the technologies at service to make way for extraordinary projects that can lead the country into becoming an industry leader in the long run.

FREMONT, CA: Construction technology in the world, despite the large-scale rollouts, has remained a bit slow when it comes to adopting new tools and techniques. With various government initiatives serving as significant drivers of growth and progress, the construction industry will be the business sector to watch out for in 2020.

People and businesses are most likely to witness an improved usage of BIM in years to come. Modular, along with prefabricated construction projects, will attain utmost  popularity as they can assist in speeding up the residential and commercial building contracts. Statistics reveal that the modular construction market might come out as the most profit-making sector in the next two years. The tools can make computer-generated images that can reflect roads and other properties, allowing the contractors to envisage the construction method at the stage of development.

Additionally, it can help in understanding how building materials sustain over a while and evaluate the quantity that is needed. It will significantly reduce the excess by figuring out the areas for energy development, as well as usage through trial tests and analysis.

The focus of the entire construction market is on creating materials and outputs that are sustainable, as well as energy-efficient, with the help of advanced technologies. Different sectors of the construction industry must implement new trends to stay relevant in the market, having various project timelines flinching and increasing their expenses.

The construction industry in 2020 will be inclined towards the use of technologies such as 3D printing, modular building, drones, cloud computing, wearable safety devices, and building information modeling (BIM) that can change how construction projects are managed and executed. Modern technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), and augmented reality (AR) are vital tools that serve to enhance worker performance and competence. The construction industry is focused on strengthening the onsite safety of the workers rather than searching for a way to replace the human hands. 3D printing is considered one of the most profitable construction industry technologies so far. It brings design flexibility, higher sustainability, and lower costs. Construction firms can let their planners design better user experience for their customers at every step down the lane by using special user interface software.
