Data Collection Apps Deliver Efficiency
Remote work has become more of a necessity in recent years as a result of the pandemic, so collecting data via mobile apps grew in popularity. Construction management companies moved to put checklists and forms online and make inspections available on mobile devices. This meant that much of the work formerly done in an office could move outdoors to the Jobsite. Efficiency improves whenever reports and inspections can be customized and done on a tablet or smartphone, thereby saving time.
Drones Capture Data Quickly
Drones have now become indispensable construction technology, particularly on large acreage projects. Commercial architects can survey a site faster and cheaper than a ground crew. Drones can get into difficult locations like multi-story buildings or bridges for measurement and inspections. Capture high-resolution images, then turn that data into topographical maps and interactive 3D models where needed.
Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Construction technologies like BIM are playing a important role in moving projects forward faster. Various people on a building project can collaborate with the commercial architect in real-time by contributing to a model at each stage. Like working on a shared document, the model updates immediately, creating a more streamlined and efficient building process. Problems are more readily visible with this modeling software and can also be analyzed and remedied more immediately.
3D Printing Emerges
Construction trends include 3D printing or fabrication of some materials like concrete blocks on site. Emerging technologies like this still need to ramp up to deliver higher volume in some instances. However, this technology has many potential applications in our industry. Recent federal funding will focus resources on this area and help to develop modular panels for roofs and walls from recycled materials used in tilt-up construction.
