What are the Trends That Will Rule 2020

By Construction Tech Review | Friday, January 17, 2020

The construction industry is slowly following the trend of automating processes and leveraging technology. As a result, modular buildings are becoming highly popular.

FREMONT, CA: It might seem that one of the largest industries, among others, has not yet started adopting technologies and are slow in changing their traditional methods. Still, several forces shape how contractors do business and build the structure. Here are some of the techniques that construction has started to implement in their sector.

In the last few years, the construction industry has witnessed some severe structural failures that have resulted in many deaths. It can be forecasted that the construction companies will experience more inspection from the carriers of insurance which will try to file a lawsuit instantly when an accident takes place.  

Modular will Increase its Demand the market

The last few years, the demand for modular buildings in the commercial construction market has increased rapidly. However, there are still many sceptical observers, and there is no doubt that the modular technology still has a long way to go to achieve a better and more stable flow of demand from the owners. It is estimated that the year 2020 will be an enormous year for the business as the industry will start changing, and more contractors will adopt modular technology. 

Automation will not Steal Jobs

The various construction equipment, like drones nailing the roof tiles or self-driven cars, will move forward with their autonomous work.  

The construction industries will keep focusing on semi-autonomy, autonomy and remote operation as they keep increasing their offerings. Moreover, on-site employees also do not have to be concerned about robots or any other autonomous tools for stealing their jobs. Instead, all the autonomous techniques will increase their efficiency in work, along with decreasing issues regarding safety.

The contractors are also welcoming automation as due to its flexibility and easy to use methods such as capturing photographs of the job site, a task that was done by the employees earlier. However, it will take a while to implement automated tech in everyday life of the construction sites.
