The world is becoming a global metropolis with an estimated 60% of the population living in cities by 2050. The “Smart Cities” movement envisions the quality of life in urban areas are sustainable, efficient and humane. Generally, a smart city is one that incorporates information and communication technologies (ICT) to meet this goal. Smart city development includes the use of smart initiatives that leverage technology investments.

The construction industry is literally building these cities, so contractors play a pivotal role in the smart city movement reaching its potential.
