Though it’s often characterized as a traditional blue-collar industry, construction has long been at the forefront of technological progress. With a critical role in the buildings we occupy and the infrastructure we use every day, it’s critical that the development of safety, efficiency and structural technologies remains on the cutting edge.
While various improvements have been made over the past few decades particularly in regards to safety new technologies have the potential to provoke sweeping change. The rise of mobile processing and new wireless technologies are allowing for smaller and more mobile devices, and even larger autonomous vehicles. While these technologies may take time to trickle down to every site, they’ve already demonstrated their potential to change the industry.
