The construction industry is becoming increasingly technological. Think of the evolution from drafting tables to CAD and Revit software, or the introduction of cloud computing, 3D printing, drones, wearable technology and more. Construction industry leaders are looking to decrease costs and improve productivity with digital tools.
Digital transformation in construction goes far beyond augmenting specific functions with software or robots. Embracing digital tools results in a fundamental shift in how businesses operate and help them stay competitive in an increasingly digital work landscape. Time is money on the jobsite, and as the construction industry continues to grapple with labor shortages, supply chain roadblocks, heightened inflation and a likely recession, leveraging technology to drive efficiencies and streamline controllable expenses is more important now than ever.
