Technology and the construction industry – are we digitally up to speed?

Technology and the construction industry – are we digitally up to speed?

In a world full of technology it seems strange that construction, one of the largest and strongest industries we have, lags behind on the adoption of some key digital developments.

The built environment is changing and as an industry, we must change with it, aligning corporate strategies with technology and adopting a robust digital approach.

Where to start?

  • Reviewing the technologies that are available and how they can develop and sit in your business plan – what can be achieved by adopting these new strategies?
  • Getting buy-in from your team is imperative for the success of any changes and developments – staff MUST be engaged and upskilled to use these new technologies. Money is wasted on new products, systems and training if they are not utilized.
  • Better data, better decisions! Digital construction is not just about BIM and robotic solutions but also about workflows, technology, and site and head office synergy.

Technology has a role to play in every aspect of the construction industry, from the internet to drones on site and as an industry we need to keep up to date and current on developments and the tools available.

As a company, Built Intelligence are passionate about researching & developing digital solutions and bringing the best to the market. We also work closely with industry experts to share information and data with our construction communities to support change and innovation.
