Impact of Technology in Construction.

As the construction industry moves away from the hands-on manual work environment to automated workflows, there had been a continued adoption of high technology developments. Adapting technology innovations has become inevitable for companies to grow, as machines and human applications aren’t sufficient to keep up with today’s demands.
These technological manufacturing developments, according to industry experts help meet specific demand and increased general job efficacy. From the pre-construction, construction and post-construction processes, the availability of technological innovations improve project design and execution.
According to Tessa Lau, Chief Robot whisperer, Savioke, increased technology usage “will lead to automation of construction processes. Improve quality, decrease projects completion time, and keep costs low.”
Several manufacturing innovations and devices have proven very useful for project development and execution.
A report released by the economic forum says the technology would make construction more cost effective. It says, “Wherever the new technologies have properly permeated this fragmented industry, the outlook is an almost 20 percent reduction in total life-cycle costs of a project, as well as substantial improvements in completion time, quality and safety.”

Here is a quick outlook of various manufacturing technologies that are currently making waves in the construction industry.

3D printing and robotics – Lau says the integration of robotics manufacturing machines would change the way we design and build. according to her “Robots will help automate and streamline many of the physical tasks performed in construction today.”

Robotics 3D printers and building arm can be used to build several structures. The technology uses a blend of plastic, concrete and extruded concrete to create building components of various kinds. Wider adoption of robotics can be utilized to build entire villages and machines.
