Several of the most important industry trends being witnessed today are based on new technologies that are redefining the design and construction processes.
Below are some of the especially powerful breakthroughs in construction tech that will only become stronger with time and development.
These homes and buildings use automation to direct and control important systems such as heating, air conditioning, lighting, and security. ‘Smart’ technologies are quickly gaining ground in the commercial real estate industry, as they enable owners and managers to reduce energy usage and minimise their carbon footprint.
Building Information Modeling
Also known as BIM, Building Information Modeling is a 3D process for setting up and managing projects. Although it is typically used during the design process, BIM can also be used at all stages of construction. Industry professionals can benefit from this construction tech by developing more precise plans and producing faster results, while remaining within the allotted budget.
Sustainable Design and Construction
This methodology is a strong way for companies to reduce their energy consumption and cut costs while minimising their environmental impact. Sustainable practices require a holistic approach to the design process, with the construction group creating and building all necessary elements so that everything works together. This approach can create buildings that can be up to 70% more efficient than the regular commercial building.
