New Trends in Construction and Building
Building information modeling

Building Information Modelling takes into account the most crucial thing in a construction project: Collaboration. To put it simply, BIM refers to a collaborative method of working which is based on the generation and exchange of data and information between the various project parties.

Project management software

Like various other industries, construction has realized the potential of implementing a project management software. Real-time project management software has been continuously advancing in order to draw more insights from data.

VR and AR

Compared to augmented reality, virtual reality is a much more common tool in construction. It is often used in BIM. Its biggest benefit is the ability to provide virtual walk throughs in order to sell property and pitch architectural ideas to clients. The possibility to virtually show clients what their investment will look like beforehand, makes VR a very attractive technology.

Robotics

Robotics and Automation have revolutionized various industries. Its arrival in construction has been slow but it’s here now and rapidly spreading. There has been much technological advancement made in robotics. One such example is MIT’s Digital Construction Platform which uses 3D printing to create form structures.

Drones

There has been much talk about Drones and the numerous advantages they provide to a construction project. It is extensively used in mapping the construction site (thereby gathering data of the entire site), reporting the changes and updates of the project to clients, and monitoring and inspecting job sites.

Modular construction

Modular buildings or prefabricated buildings is the development of a building structure off-site, and then transporting it to the desired site without compromising on quality. There is no change in building materials and supplies, and the job is done in less time.

Green construction

One of the most significant change observed in the construction industry is the growing interest in green construction. There has been a global change in the way people consume. Consumers have started to change their lifestyles.

In short, 2018 holds

A lot of excitement for the construction industry. From BIM to VR to Green Construction… we will see a lot of progress in all of these sectors. Lets keep a look out and see where the industry is next year.

Risk management plan in construction

Intense competition for available work
Expectation to produce a high return on all invested funds
Intense pressure to save as much money as possible as well as time
Consistently low margins and lower profits
A high number of litigation cases as well as disputes
Safety issues

5 Technologies to Improve Site Safety and OHS

Construction job sites can be risky places to work. Not only do employees have to contend with heights, moving and falling objects, respiratory dangers and moving vehicles, but they also have to exert their powers of concentration in the midst of all these hazards.
