It used to be common for construction projects to run over schedule and often, over budget as well. But technology solutions can now help to digitalise paper-driven and labour-intensive processes, optimising the use of manpower, equipment, and materials.
For example, using prefabricated, prefinished volumetric construction modules can streamline project timelines, minimise wasted materials, and achieve higher standards of quality and safety. Singapore’s Housing and Development Board estimates that a public housing project that would once have taken three or four years to build could be completed using this technique in 27 months.
Greener building materials can minimise carbon footprint. IoT networks and digital tools on construction sites can optimise equipment performance, coordinate workflows, and enable collaboration. Data and analytics can also help developers and contractors manage projects more effectively and help predict and prevent disruptions.
