Want to avoid extinction in the face of technological disruption? Don’t miss this BuildTech Talk webinar presented by Penta.
Technological disruption impacts every industry — even labor-intensive, last-mile industries like construction are being radically transformed by emerging technologies at an ever-quickening rate.
Construction as an industry hasn’t kept pace with the technological advances adopted by industry at large, but construction companies will quickly reach a tipping point where they must adapt and adopt new technologies or they will lose out to emerging tech-savvy construction conglomerates and face extinction.
In this BuildTech Talk session, we’ll introduce you to the transformative technologies that will shape the future of our industry including:
- Geolocation tools and higher definition surveying: Drones and smart devices will power the way job sites are managed
- 5-D building information modeling: Adding cost and timeline to building models will improve project outcomes
- Digital collaboration and mobility: Information will always be available as jobsites become more digitally connected
- The internet of things and advanced analytics: Jobsite data will be collected and connected at unprecedented rates
- Future-proof design and construction: Advances in materials science are transforming building processes
We’ll also offer you simple guidance on how to begin the process of technological transformation inside your construction company, and we’ll see the real-world impacts of digital adoption on Lithko. Our case study will offer you key insights into how this construction company was able to connect everyone from the field to the back office to increase productivity and profitability without adding to their workloads.
