Solving Labour Shortage through Technology

Construction Tech Review | Monday, November 22, 2021

“Unlike static inline, digital twins are dynamic and continuously calibrated to reflect the current state of the asset.”

Fremont, CA: Urbanisation is developing rapidly worldwide, especially in developing countries. While a workforce shortage can significantly impact the construction phases of this hastened urbanisation, optimising other stages can somewhat help in mitigating it. Perhaps the most important technology for pre-construction in that regard is building information modelling (BIM). BIM software allows companies to create, edit, and publish digital models much faster than physical alternatives. These tools also provide a single place to create and submit essential reports.

However, BIM improves efficiency not only through design optimisation. BIM supports the development of digital twins and the implementation of digital projects, which provide greater transparency and predictability over the entire asset lifecycle. Unlike static inline, digital twins are dynamic and continuously calibrated to reflect the current state of the asset. The 3D model becomes a digital twin, continuously updated from the physical assets represented by the digital assets. Meanwhile, embedded data and IoT technologies always provide up-to-date information about real-world assets. Digital twins of real-time data help improve collaboration between multiple stakeholders and increase productivity by democratising project information during the construction phase.

Alongside, BIM can help create a safe construction environment as well. BIM enables project managers to visualize the project in more than 2-dimensions, which help determine potential hazards before they cause problems throughout the construction project. Moreover, to make construction sites more durable and safer, BIM technology helps architects choose building materials ideal for the environment and human safety.
