The Impact of Blockchain on the Construction Industry

By Construction Tech Review | Friday, August 02, 2019

While more blockchain capabilities are rolled out, it is only a matter of time before this impressive technology delivers the project efficiencies that are guaranteed

FREMONT, CA: The construction sector has often been used to kick-start the economy in times of recession, to sustain growth and spur employment. Every industry has its pros and cons; similarly, the construction industry has some of its challenges to deal with. Industry specialists have been working to surmount these obstacles, enhance productivity, and deliver projects on time and budget.

The construction industry is a much-focused area because of its application of technology to lift project productivity. An initiative like Building Information Modeling (BIM), drones and 3D printing acknowledge the integration of design processes, IoT, and VR. The construction sector remains persistently fractured and dysfunctional.

Re-imagining processes enhance information transparency. Lifting the industry's strategy to traceability and accountability for work product will help project stakeholders rightly consider risks and expenses, leading to a better-informed judgment. Trust among the stakeholders is the main ingredient when it comes to implementing the approaches. Many distributed data collections can be fed into a common platform using blockchain. This includes rethinking the whole supply chain via quality assurance to the incorporation of elements into infrastructure to achieve its lifecycle.

Blockchain is increasingly being developed and used in several industries. It enables the safe integration and use of data that relates or records to transactions. Information is stored beyond a network of computers and shielded by cryptographic technology installed algorithms that are stored chronologically and can't be changed.

The technology acknowledges approved stakeholders to ingress information in the ledger with a considerable degree of transparency and trust, through a verified and reliable chain of records. Blockchain delivers profits through the reduction of delegates. By mitigating risks, related costs such as insurance and legal expenses also diminish. It is imperative that the integrity of the blockchain is protected and not subject to cybersecurity threats.
