New Age Technologies for Construction Industry
Rising industrial, commercial and residential growth is driving demand for faster construction and best in class quality. This has made it integral to use advanced construction technologies to meet this increasing demand. Technological advancements driving construction forward can automate vital operations and create a data-driven and collaborative approach towards construction. Leveraging advanced technologies will give rise to productive and safer construction methods. Developers are continuously exploring new technologies that improve the quality, strength, and safety of the buildings.
Digital Technologies in Construction
Artificial Intelligence technology is revolutionizing the construction industry like several industries are already benefitting from various applications of AI. In Building Information Modeling, AI can prove beneficial in planning and surveying. AI-powered systems can create 3D maps, blueprints, and construction plans without the need for any human supervision with a massive volume of curated data. Similar methods can be used to identify industry trends and create strategies to ensure efficient construction practices. AI-powered virtual assistants can help engineers and on-site workers with different construction procedures and inform the engineers about the construction deficiencies.

Construction firms must pay attention to the potentials of the Internet of Things (IoT) which can facilitate efficient supply restocking for prefabrication procedures. RFID tags can be labeled on supply materials, which can be counted remotely and the central system will be notified when the supply is running out. Machines with IoT sensors can be used for remote operation, to track the location of construction tools and equipment, and enable predictive maintenance of equipment.
The relatively younger digital technology in construction Augmented Reality (AR) will transform the sector by enabling construction planning by generating 3D models using construction plans in which the construction staff can estimate the final design and understand the different parameters and requirements regarding materials, human resources, and equipment.
Blockchain helps create smart contracts that can simplify supply chain management, and construction organizations can develop digital identification for workers, contractors, and engineers with the help of blockchain.
Management of crucial data and document is, and most firms use traditional methods of data processing that are outdated. The introduction of cloud technology will eradicate all these data management issues. It allows sharing critical documents and data in real-time and its online nature provides an easily accessible medium for storing and sharing data when compared to traditional methods.
