Technology within the construction industry
In the Modern Age, both manufacturing and construction have changed to a great extent. Construction is effectively the process of moving and assembling all of the necessary parts until there is a finished and functioning design. And although construction operations are essentially the same and the process may be repetitive, it is neither in a fixed location or in a fixed sequence.
Many automated processes are now being introduced at various stages of construction including pre-construction and post-construction. The planning and management of a projects helps to foresee any potential problems, reduce defects, and save on time and money.
We are seeing a shift from an industry that was very hands on to an industry that is becoming more automated through the use of technology. See which technologies are being introduced and how they are helping to change the way we construct in the future including:
