The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many industries to reassess how business is conducted and managed, and the construction industry is no exception. Adoption and implementation of innovative solutions have gained widespread popularity, and these changing trends are redefining the way the construction industry will emerge out of the pandemic to remain competitive. However, the driving force behind the change, accelerated largely due to the pandemic, has been technology growth and adoption for safety, management, and monitoring in the construction industry.
For instance, experts see the use of blockchain technology as an efficient way of providing more secure and fast-moving workflow that allows all involved parties to improve productivity. Smart contracts, alongside, offers all stakeholders of a project a shared platform to do business, allowing them to buy, track, and pay for services. Rather than receiving contracts and tracking deliverables from multiple avenues, firms can use smart contacts as an all-in-one tracking system where rules and deadlines can be set, and the blockchain technology can enforce them. This approach allows faster closeouts, increased security, better project tracking, and an automated supply chain.
Notably, the use of building information management (BIM) with augmented reality (AR) is another noticeable trend, helping architects and project planners a more efficient of visualizing the 3D models. It is helping in building, designing, and constructing accurate models and infrastructures, preventing rework— and thus saving on construction costs. In addition, efficient technologies like drones provide real-time data for planning, mapping large areas for survey and job site inspection before construction.
At this juncture, there are variety of project management solution and software providers that are entering the market to cater to the different needs in the construction tech domain. To help them choose the solution that best fits their requirement, Construction Tech Review has compiled a list of project management solution and software providers.
