The global construction industry is changing. An industry that has long been accused of being resistant to technological innovation has finally begun to buck its ideas up and say goodbye to many of its archaic habits.
It’s about time too. With wafer-thin to non-existent productivity gains in the global construction sector in the last 40 years, it’s an area that has been ripe for innovation.
Driven by the ubiquity of smartphones and affordable tech, smart digital solutions are introducing more efficient processes and ways of working from the back office all the way to the construction site itself.
Simply put, you’re just as likely to see a site foreman carrying an iPad as you are a spanner in 2018. Technology is finally shaking up the sector and apps are at the forefront of it all.
