Trends shaping the construction industry
Ever-growing demand means the sector not only has the potential to create jobs and boost the economy, but also to facilitate the growth of other industries by laying the foundations for infrastructure, sites and offices, among other things. However, in recent years the construction industry faced several challenges such as climate change, sustainability, lagging productivity and financial pressure. The construction incumbents are still trying to formulate a response to these trends.
Digital technologies create opportunities
Digital Construction, defined as utilizing digital technologies to construct more efficiently with higher quality, could provide an answer. But, when we look at IT investments, the construction industry has historically underinvested in technology. Still, we believe that digitalization presents a significant opportunity to not only deal with these challenges, but to use them to thrive.
