Each year, project managers, engineers, and those are involved in the construction industry are trying to find ways on how to develop technology even more.
Thanks to the hard work of those who want to make this happen, new techniques and technologies are being produced, allowing us to achieve what used to be impossible. Here are the three exciting construction technologies of 2018.
1. Drones for Site Surveying
Those who are in the construction industry would agree that site surveys can be very challenging and dangerous. However, with the help of drones, this job has become a little more tolerable. By 2018, we can expect drones being used on the construction site to survey the area. However, it’s important to note that this isn’t a “DIY” kind of project.
Once the drone pulls in the data, a program would use a virtual canvas to lay out the project, which would allow the construction team to embed this to their BIM model. Its main purpose is to help construction managers have a better understanding of where their projects stand and how much progress has been made.
Aside from that, drones can also be helpful in detecting problems within the construction site. For example, if you want to determine if there are any leaks or cracks in the building, this can easily be spotted by a drone as it could conduct visual and thermal inspections. Since it’s being run by technology, the surveys are quite accurate.
