He said: “The industry is progressing and there are many different solutions every day, there is also a lot of information available in the market today, as well as modern construction technologies such as BIM, 3D modelling, l AI and more, but what the industry needs to consider is how to connect all of these solutions to improve holistically Connectivity plays a critical role in delivering these projects efficiently on time; a successful project.
Wallett also explained the effects of modern technology on sustainability. He said: “Today, as projects seek sustainability, it is essential to understand that new ways of working naturally produce new results and therefore companies need to start investing in construction technology, to increase productivity and sustainability. While 20% of projects are already impacted by sustainability regulations, 90% are expected to be impacted by sustainability through these changes and technology adoption,” he added.
