Between the pre-plan stage and the final product, there are a lot of steps. Technology is helping to bridge the gap between design and construction to make the end result more efficient, cheaper, and better all around.

According to experts, using some semblance of digital tools on the job boosts productively 50-60% on average. Technology is allowing the contractor to have input earlier on in the process which cuts down on the time during the build.

Another tool that cuts down on waste is laser scanners. These can not only garner exact measurements, but also help to create 3D models of the projects for review. Combining these models with drone footage, the engineers, builders, and owners can all see a clear picture for the project as a whole.

We’re excited to see new innovations helping to make the job safer and better for all parties. What tech-based projects are you excited to see? Let us know in the comments below.
