How Will the Evolving Digital World Affect the Construction Industry?
It’s clear that Digital Transformation within the construction industry is a reality. Whether organisations are willing to accept and adopt this change is another matter. The barriers to digital transformation and innovation may include budget constraints, internal resistance to change, skills shortages or a lack of clear leadership.
For the industry to move forward it needs to understand the benefits of the new technology available and the opportunities it presents for creating new business models embracing productive, collaborative and profitable strategies.
BIM and Augmented Reality is rapidly becoming widely accepted across the sector. But what are the new technologies coming down the line that will make a real difference to the day-to-day supply chain? Robotics, UAV’s, Automation, Mobile Communications and Wireless Technologies, Autonomous Vehicles, Advanced Materials and the Internet of Things are all predicted to change the industry and have a direct impact on how projects are planned, delivered and funded in the future.
