Leveraging Artificial Intelligence to Optimize Construction Projects

By Construction Tech Review | Wednesday, March 06, 2019

Modern high rise buildings are the quintessential of human dwelling. From small huts to architectural marvels, Technology has played a significant role in the evolution process of complex housing and work structures. Construction companies are leveraging technology tools to improve the structures continually. Artificial intelligence (AI) technology can also play a critical role in increasing the efficiency of construction companies by optimizing the work schedule, improving workplace safety, and keeping a tight watch on construction facilities. Here is a detailed analysis of the advantages of AI in the construction industry:

Improving Construction Efficiency: Large scale construction projects require years of preparation and planning, which is possible only through the coordination of various teams involved in the process. A lack of coordination can lead to scheduling conflicts, design-related changes, construction material delivery delays, and many other unforeseen project complications. Modern AI tools can eliminate these issues by monitoring all the aspects of a construction project. These tools can analyze patterns in construction projects to indicate the schedule-related problems and optimize them for project delivery.

Enhancing Construction design: AI-powered tools can help to augment the construction design process by analyzing previous construction plans and applying aspects of one project with the others. In addition to that AI tools also capture the designer’s plan in the knowledge management systems, and use the information to train AI agents to curate rule-based workflows. Computer vision and machine learning techniques allow construction companies to analyze proposed construction sites, helping them to create maps, blueprints, and construction plan that meet the design goals. Additionally, AI tools also offer adaptive modeling techniques to explore a wide range of design alternatives, and reinforcement learning approaches which help to find an optimal design that fits with the overall aesthetic goals of the project.

Improving Construction Safety and Efficiency: Construction projects have various safety and security challenges, which can delay the project to a large extent. Construction companies have started installing cameras, sensors, and other IoT devices to monitor the operation of the construction sites. AI tools can analyze the IoT data to flag any safety hazards and unsafe work behavior, eliminating any potential danger.
