How Construction companies operate in the future will be very different
The Construction industry has long been viewed as a sector that is reluctant to change. However, with new and exciting technologies continually arising, it is exciting to see how this sector is now entering a period of substantial adjustment.
Advanced UK looks at how digital transformation and new technologies are currently being used within the construction sector and how the industry is transitioning over to a more complex, collaborative workflow system.
Digital Transformation and New Technologies
Our research within the construction industry tells us that this sector is always evolving and changing, and as a knock-on effect, business feels that they must keep ahead in the way in which they operate and function. Do you think the same in your company?
You may have heard the recent buzzwords, around digital transformation and evolving technologies, such as 3D, Augmented Reality and Virtual reality in the workplace that is placing a significant impact on business operations.
These technologies are helping companies with faster planning approvals, quicker product to market times as well as speedier project initiation to cash time frames.
Virtual reality is being used for health and safety
Virtual Reality has now moved away from being a home interactive gaming accessory to a real working solution for companies to use. For instance, within Construction, virtual reality is being used for health and safety to enable training to happen above the ground in a much more efficient manner to speed up the training process.
One area that can be hard to keep evolving and changing is with your managed print and document services area. The industry wants to be able to work, smarter, quicker and more efficiently to maximise time and efforts so that all employees, contractors and partners can benefit from.
Industry pressures are also impacting the way in which we work, such as the pressures to build quicker with tighter project budgets and time frames, with less impact on the environment. With more partnerships, joint ventures and subcontractors working on projects, the challenges of work collaboration in real time, across multiple different platforms in rapidly growing – everyone wants to be working in sync and in real time.
As the workplace is ever evolving, the future will eventually turn into a paperless and printerless remote project site, as we drive digital alternatives to help shape the future working with alliance partners.
Furthermore, with operational challenges across multiple locations and broadband issues on top of service delivery management, the Construction sector is looking ahead at what is next on the horizon with digital transformation and new technologies, to strengthen their workforce.
For the past fifteen years, we have developed long-standing partnerships, working with clients such as CREST, Galliford Try and Hiretest, to name a few. We have over 350 field-based engineers with a capable IT support desk that works 24/7 in the UK and Europe.
At Advanced UK, we recognise the importance of such changes in Construction, and as specialists in this field, we continue to support our construction clients to evolve and transition over to such new technologies to promote their business needs.
