From digital twins to robotics, this MVP Technology Framework evaluates the technologies helping engineers and construction managers reduce costs, drive productivity, and improve safety on the job site.
Job sites around the world are currently constrained by supply chain shortages, a lack of skilled workers, and rising costs from stubborn inflation.
In fact, 4 out of 5 construction firms consistently report having a hard time filling some or all positions, according to the Associated General Contractors of America. With 40% of US construction workers expected to retire within the next decade, this labor challenge is expected to get even more difficult.
This is where new tech solutions can help.
Across a variety of industries — including construction, mining, manufacturing, forestry, and more — companies are developing new technologies like drones, IIoT sensors, and reality capture that promise to increase automation, improve collaboration among stakeholders, and drive efficiency.
In this report, we evaluate 9 tech markets that job site managers and engineers should monitor, vet, and prioritize.
