The construction worksite of the future ….
From global supply chain disruptions to adopting strict physical distancing rules to keep construction sites open, the Australian construction industry is learning to respond to this unprecedented era of change. While many project delays have been exacerbated by COVID-related challenges around health, safety and productivity, it only reveals what the industry already knows – that it remains one of the least digitised industries.
With many construction sites completing projects in the same way they were being done decades prior, project managers must consider innovative but dependable solutions to achieve project delivery success moving forward. In many cases, it may require adjusting the means and methods traditionally used when delivering projects.
To ensure construction projects are progressing with as few interruptions as possible, there are a few solutions currently available that can help address the current unique challenges facing the industry.
- Remote visual monitoring of construction sites
- Physical distancing on construction sites
- Unite the field and office staff, bringing information and processes together
