With the passage of time, advancements in technology have introduced many innovations in the construction field. Today, the modern age builders, contractors, and construction companies heavily rely on cutting-edge technology such as big data, AR/VR, 3D printing and robotics, and analytics to architect beautiful dwellings and showcase the delicate art of construction. The demand for unmanned aerial vehicles or drones also found usage on construction sites for monitoring logistics, performing site inspections, and assessing various on-field operations.
However, among these emerging technology trends, it will be interesting to see how virtual reality (VR) pictures into this space. Albeit VR has already witnessed profound usage in video games and entertainment industry, several tech-savvy developers and construction experts are finding practical applications of this new technology in their field. The proliferation of VR in construction sites brings forth several avenues to improve designs, pitch projects, and enhance training and safety. Interestingly, 4D environments will assist construction companies to plan every aspect of a construction lifecycle starting from safety to efficiency in product delivery. In addition to this, the growing application of wearable technology, machine learning, prefabrication, predictive analytics, and connected job sites are further triggering the change in the construction sphere.
