Futuristic Construction Technologies

By Construction Tech Review | Tuesday, January 29, 2019

Digitalization has penetrated virtually every aspect of design and engineering, but in many ways, the physical construction itself has remained a stubbornly analog process. A lot of new technologies such as smart wearables and devices, drones, robots, and software and applications have emerged to enable construction companies in designing safer job sites, improving communication, and reducing costly injuries and delays. 

As we step into the future of construction, everything appears to be talking to each other. Internet of Things in construction creates a huge potential for improving efficiency and conditions such as wearables used on job sites will now provide valuable information to the user.

Virtual reality is another technology that is changing the construction industry. As every construction is different and every site is unique, construction has never been an easily scaled industry. VR has made this easy to share across teams and stay up to date on relevant issues. Also, creating a 3D model of a construction site is a complex process whereas 3D modeling software assists to create a detailed, accurate model quickly and at reduced cost. Through VR models, clients can see what the project will look like when it’s built. This allows them to make smart decisions and improves the contractor’s ability to meet the client’s expectations.

Thus, the upcoming year’s construction technology developments will be focusing on how to build quicker and smarter, and be environmentally friendly. As the pace of change continues to accelerate, the industry needs to be ready with the regulatory frameworks required, and construction companies need to ensure that they have the skills and systems in place to build the associated infrastructure.
