The residential and commercial construction industries change with the times like everything else. What began with a simple tape measure now includes drones, 3D printers and virtual reality. Innovative advancements offer new design elements for property owners like you. It’s more exciting than ever to be a part of the construction industry. Here are three ways our world has improved from discoveries in construction tech:

Better Detect Errors and Inefficiencies During the Build Process

As buildings become more complex, architects and construction crews need advanced equipment to detect issues and improve designs. From a problematic electrical map to missing design elements, AR/VR and 3D rendering aid to pinpoint issues before they become an expensive problem. Here are a few other ways AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality) assist in the construction process:

  • Allows clients to explore the design before the project begins
  • Helps engineers and maintenance workers see the structure as a whole
  • Provides a permanent record of the building

Complex Construction Plans are Achieved at a Rapid Pace

Client expectations grow as more impressive design trends take hold. Projects that used to take years to complete can be visualized and completed in a fraction of the time. While this may seem like contractors must sacrifice quality, the opposite is actually true. Advancements in building materials are another strong pro of twenty-first century tech. 

Robotic Labor Saves Money and Introduces New Techniques

No, we would never suggest a robot can do the job better than a skilled human. In a world where blue collar jobs are at an all-time low, tech companies see the opportunity to invent an alternative. From automated drywall installation to laying concrete, room for robotics is ever-growing in the construction industry. Perks of robots include:

  • Shortened build times
  • Improved construction quality
  • Efficient demolition
