Technological development is gradually ruling out the hindrances in construction processes with seamless communication between the clients and the construction units.
In the rapid growth and evolution of the construction industry, technological adoption is one of the significant factors responsible for its progress. While the industry has lagged in the past, it is now benefitting by embracing tech-based solutions. For many years, the construction sector in India used conventional methodologies and traditional processes, but the advent of cost-effective and efficient construction technologies has changed the scenario.
A survey suggests that around 66% of the construction companies in India are prioritizing digital transformation. From cloud-based automation to Artificial Intelligence, the sector is set to evolve by bringing efficiency and sustainable infrastructure development. Here are some of the intelligent technologies that are leading the transformation in the construction industry.
Increased convenience with website and app
Today, contractors and construction companies are adopting digital platforms to provide complete visibility to clients. The user-friendly websites give the clients an end-to-end overview of the services, projects, budgets, and even construction methodologies. The industry is gradually adopting IoT-based technologies that help all the stakeholders stay on top of the construction process. With the introduction of mobile apps in the construction industry, one can easily track the real-time progress of the construction process while keeping a tab on even the minutest details for better customization.
Smart tech-based design models and services
The gradual adoption of smart tools has made construction processes simpler, efficient, and agile. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a widely adopted new-age solution that helps the contractors and other stakeholders design and plan for better buildability. It also gives accurate 3D structural models that help in visualization before and during the construction processes. It reduces errors and wastage while ensuring the timely completion of projects without exceeding the approved budget.
Technological development is gradually ruling out the hindrances in construction processes with seamless communication between the clients and the construction units. The clients can easily keep track of their booking agreement, 2D approved plans, project schedule, team assigned to their project, and even make online payments using digital platforms.
Best practices for ensured quality-check
The use of innovative construction technology not only saves time but also cuts the cost and workforce involved. Construction companies have started relying on software and tech-based platforms for design, planning, coordination, execution, and even quality-check at the final stage. For instance, currently, we have tech-based solutions that detect the quality of the building and determine any errors like potential water leakage. It helps in real-time decisions to resolve the issue while preventing risks involved with large-scale damage, costs, and even project delays.
Enhanced growth with digitization
With the ongoing transformation in the industry, construction companies are now shifting their focus to digitization and social media marketing. While adopting tech-based solutions, the industry is keen on reaching a wider audience and enhancing customer experience. Meanwhile, the contractors and other stakeholders use technology to shorten their project timelines and reduce risks, giving them a highly competitive advantage in the marketplace.
The construction industry is gradually adopting new-age technologies to enhance buildability while meeting client requirements effectively. The implementation of construction technology is a step ahead in the direction of increased productivity, reduced risks, efficient project operations, all while bearing better profit margins.
