Digital Transformation is changing everything, including the way we build. When it comes to planning and designing new buildings and cities, incorporating advanced technologies to ensure energy efficiency and long term sustainability is becoming a necessity. Whether building a smart city from scratch or rehabbing existing structures with connected solutions, data-centric innovation is being placed top of mind. As developers and construction teams lay the framework for new buildings and infrastructure, connectivity and data collection will be as important as blueprints and safety. Researchers and Technology evangelists expect building and infrastructure data to be of significant value, giving us greater control of our digital future.
But what potential risks does biting the digital apple of Industry 4.0 create for construction professionals that have always completed projects without the use of advanced technologies? Construction crews and foremen will be pushed to become familiar with IoT, digital twins, and data-management processes that are synonymous with digital transformation. Those that continue to complete their services in the traditional way, will be at a significant disadvantage to those who choose to pursue initiatives around IoT and other cutting edge technologies.
Join us on July 29 for “Building Smart with IoT” where we will discuss the objectives for using advanced technology in construction, why current structures require modernization, and the latest trends and technologies used to connect the job sites, buildings, and infrastructure of the future.
