Over the last hundred years, most industries made significant gains on their progress lines. While construction sector lines remain flat. However, we are entering the progress line that is about to increase! What is the force driving this line? Digital Technology helps us improve quality, expedite delivery, keep our people safe, increase the bottom line.
Digital construction is the use and application of digital tools to improve the process of delivering and operating the built environment. In general, terms that will translate into making the delivery, operation and renewal of our built environment safer, more efficient and more collaborative. It will ensure that we get a better outcome at every stage of an asset’s lifecycle. As we look forward to another year of development and construction technology innovation, here are some tools and software that are driving the construction industry through the digital age:
Building Information Modelling (BIM)
BIM is again one of the hottest construction technology trends. It comes as no surprise if we take into account that the emergence of an open and highly collaborative data ecosystem is on the way. BIM technology could be the catalyst for a fundamental change in how we manage, design and develop a construction project. There are many different levels of programming enabled through BIM. Both 4D and 5D BIM are two representative examples in that direction.
