Every construction company in the Philippines, despite the hardships they’ve experienced this 2016, are still in high spirits and looking forward as to what the year 2017 will offer them. This incoming year the construction industry’s hands will be full of exciting innovations that will steer it to enter a new technological era. These are what we found out so far:
The Drone Revolution
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), or drones are no longer thought of as just “toys for big boys.” It can also be used in heavy duty applications such as in construction sites. Just program it to inspect or map the whole area, from top to bottom, and the drone will provide you a view in 3D. It will save you time, money, and lives if you let a drone handle site inspections.
The PDH Academy discusses what is in store for a construction company in the Philippines once they integrated the use of drones on site:
This is one of the fearless forecasts of Buildsoft. They pointed out that it can “improve safety, drive productivity and reduce budget.” However, we have to face the truth that in our country this trend is still not possible for the mere future, more so to happen in 2017.
That one day every employee, from the contractors down to its workers, maybe even of a construction company in the Philippines will have a privilege to use one.
Through 3D printing, it can speed up the process of building modular homes or pre-fabricated homes. This was easily carried out by a Chinese company where they constructed 10 small houses in just 24 hours using their ginormous 3D printer, the Huffington Post reports. Unbelievable? Watch the clip below:
Integrated Mobile Technologies
One of the signs a construction company in the Philippines is bound to be successful is it can build strong relationships and maintain open communication at all times. Mobile tech can “help improve communication between contractors, owners, architects and the construction team,” explained in an article on South Bay Construction, as it “allows real-time collaboration and can improve quality assurance.”
It looks like the future of the global construction industry in 2017 leans more in the technology side of things. Ah, can you feel it in your bones the threat of AI (artificial intelligence) takeover? We have to wait and see.
I love life and all things about it! How about you?
