5 Types Of Futuristic Construction Tech You Will See On The Job Site

Published on 12 November 18

There's no denying that IoT technology has been changing some things in the construction industry. It's being widely utilized in this sector that today, buildings are surrounded by smart sensors, safety cones are equipped with IoT technology, wearables are getting smarter, and many more. There's definitely a lot to expect in this technology, and that's what we are going to discuss now.

Here's how the Internet of Things will affect the construction industry in 2019.

Construction Projects Would Be More Efficient and Timely

One of the technological innovations being affected by IoT technology is BIM. It's a procedure that makes a 3D replica of the structure. This is commonly used in several areas, such as the design and construction phases of the project.

With BIM, it's easier to make changes as they are automatically updated. BIM could also be utilized to catalyze smart building projects, and the IoT sensors can be installed in a model which would create a data that can be used to monitor occupant movements, temperature trends, and even energy consumption.

Green Building to Help the Environment

We cannot deny that the construction industry creates a lot of waste on a regular basis, and that's why advocates have been looking for ways on how to resolve this issue, and one of which is through the use of eco-friendly construction and architecture. It's worth considering that it's essential to be able to keep waste materials out of landfills.

Thankfully, with IoT, the design and engineering process would allow them to utilize energy management as a way of reducing environmental impact often connected with project development. Green buildings today would be able to enjoy some things, such as closing down non-essential systems instantly when the building is empty and being able to automatically open and close louvers to achieve just the right amount of light.

Intelligent Prefab

As compared to traditional methods, prefabricated buildings are known to be more practical and cost useful. Not just that, they are also ideal because they don't produce much waste. With IoT, the problem of prefabricated buildings being too challenging in nature has finally been resolved.

The RFID sensors can be utilized to track down each part through the supply chain. RFID data is also helpful in mitigating the downsides of downstream construction displays, and it's capable of producing real-time renderings.

Construction Management Time is critical in the construction industry. As a matter of fact, a slight delay could lead to a waste of money. With technology, this can easily be avoided because IoT could help you determine if there's something wrong with the equipment and it could also assess the status of the workers.

Big construction equipment is now embedded with sensors that enable remote monitoring of excessive vibrations, as well as other possible issues. Whenever there are issues, these can easily be detected and solved right away. Perhaps, the only problem with IoT is that, when it loses connectivity, it won't be capable of sending data in real time, and that means it would also lose its ability to track assets. That's why it's essential to have a backup plan at all times.
