3 Impacts of Technology to the Construction Industry

by Wave Construction Construction
Technology is evolving fast and one industry taking advantage of it is the construction industry. 

Here in the Philippines, we embrace new technology as well, but not all can cope up. Implementing new technology may cause operation disruption, which means it would take years before we are able to see its full impact. 

Yet, it is also good to learn how technology works when it is used in the construction industry. 

Here are three influences of technology on the construction industry Filipinos should be aware of. 

Innovative Materials


Having sustainable materials is very important in construction. We want materials that are built to last long and tolerate even the harshest weather. 

Globally, there’s a huge amount of research being done to improve the safety and durability of materials. Here in the Philippines, we are slowly introduced to these kinds of material, however, it is not yet well known to others. One best example is the Autoclaved Aerated Concrete or AAC Blocks. It’s a lightweight yet a load-bearing product that is used best for house construction and office buildings. 

Right now, there are already a few AAC Block suppliers in the PhilippinesUnfortunately, not a lot of Filipinos are ready to apply such product and would prefer sticking to traditional hollow blocks and bricks. 

Better Communication


As you finish your project, you will encounter unexpected challenges and working issues. However, with proper coordination and communication, this can be reduced.   

Right now, construction software and even mobile apps saved a lot of money and time for contractors. There’s software for organizing, file storing and even tracking on heavy equipment. Right now, it’s great to know that there already is construction equipment rental in Davao and other parts of the country that uses tracking devices on their rental machines. 

Efficient operation


In the past, designers and other professionals needed to manually draft and draw their illustrations to showcase their plans. But in today's digital age, they can now show more realistic project outlines for clients to review and approve. 

It will only take a few seconds to pass and receive information across departments, which also means it is less costly. 

Incorporating technology to construction is all about taking advantage of the best tools to achieve a more productive and to lessen mistakes. Having to implement construction technology will guarantee better client services as well.
