Three Technologies Changing the Face of Construction

THREE TECHNOLOGIES CHANGING THE FACE OF CONSTRUCTION Construction is a vital industry, employing around 7% of the world's workforce. With COVID-19 accelerating the digitisation of the construction industry, things really are starting to speed up. Here are three technologies set to change the way the industry operates. ROBOTICS According to a study, the industrial robotics market is set to grow by 175% across the next ten years By 2025, it is predicted that 34% of the robots sold will be collaborative, designed to work alongside humans Previously, collaborative robots only constituted 3% of robots sold in 2016 Some of the most common robots in construction include self-driving vehicles, computer-controlled manufacturing robots, drones and large-scale 3D printers Configuring robots for the construction industry is complex and can be prohibitively expensive 3D DESIGN 3D AND PRINTING In 2017, a company announced they had 3D printed a building in 24 hours Common methods of 3D printing in construction include extrusion (concrete, foam, wax or polymers), owder bonding (polymer bond, reactive bond or sintering) as well as additive welding ... ...... .. .... I III I III III I II II I IIIII I II III NASA is currently looking at the possibility of utilising 3D printing and design technology to produce extra-terrestrial structures 3D modelling is turning blueprints into stunningly realistic virtual walkthroughs of buildings, speeding up the design process without sacrificing quality 3D design as well as 3D printing robotics could develop a far more efficient way to produce structures whilst allowing for greater technical freedom in design Al AND MACHINE LEARNING Al could be used to help prevent cost overruns, utilising predictive models Through using artifical intelligence to capture 3D imaging of a project and using a deep neural network to study that data, project planning and monitoring can be vastly streamlined Despite the advances Al brings to construction it is unlikely to replace human workers completely for a very long time Robotics, Al and other technology-driven advances could reduce building costs by up to 20% Construction is one of the least digitised industries, proving slow to properly utilise the benefits of Al and automation COVID-19 is set to change this, with more and more construction companies starting to utilise innovative solutions, massive change is to be expected in the coming years Brought to you by 53 QUANTUM SOURCES: Robotics: 3D Design and Printing: Al and Machine Learning: #:~:text=Robotics%2C%20A1%2C%20and%20the%20lnternet,the%20work%20as%20it%20progresses.
