Innovation is an important business strategy to ensure sustainability and growth over time. With all the challenges the construction industry has experienced over the last few years, including a complete shutdown during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s no wonder that innovation has birthed exciting opportunities within the entire building industry.
The Tampa Bay Business Journal featured an article from Firmo Construction about that topic titled, “Improving client experiences: Technology evolution in the construction industry.” Despite global supply disruptions and labor shortages, they are excited about several technological advancements which allow construction companies to optimize projects. These include:
- Drone-enabled construction sites – Using drones to inspect projects has been common for a while. What’s new is “the addition of drones with thermal sensors and ground control points, which can enable construction companies to quickly identify issues like water leaks and concrete cracks.”
- Virtual reality and LiDAR scanning – Both “can be harnessed to draw a clear communication channel between the business owner and their commercial contractor….[which] peels back layers behind the drywall to function as a troubleshooting tool; the primary goal being to fix and correct issues before the construction phase even begins.”
- Value engineering and design-build – Together, both of these approaches are “used to solve problems, identify and eliminate unwanted costs, and improve function and quality for the project.”
- Technology on the horizon – Some emerging technologies include: a) Augmented Reality (AR) which automates measurements and visualizes modifications, and b) Robotics designed to reduce labor shortages and increase worker safety.
