Contractors and builders must keep up with the latest trends in the construction industry in order to stay ahead of the competition. In 2019, builders and construction engineers are more inclined towards integrating new technologies and ideas into their projects in order to transform their operations. Incorporating the latest industrial trends and technologies enable them to excel in their work and business. Here are some of the latest construction trends transforming the ways in which projects are planned, designed, and executed.
- Green Construction
Green design construction technology is rising in 2019. Its purpose is to build environmentally friendly and resource-efficient projects that involve every aspect of construction from planning and design to execution, demolition, and cleanup. Green construction practices greatly benefit the environment, as 20 percent of global emissions are caused by the construction industry.
- Use of Drones in Construction
The use of drones in construction continues to be a growing trend in 2019. Their usage rises by 239 percent every year. Besides aerial photography, drones are used for mapping large areas and for producing thermal images and heat maps. Drones can also be used as security tools on construction sites to minimize the risk of construction equipment theft. Thus, these aerial vehicles are here to stay, equipped with cameras and other features to capture project progress, collect data, access remote locations, and complete safety inspections.
- Mobile Construction Technologies
The application of mobile devices is also growing in the construction industry, thanks to the intuitive cloud apps that enable field workers to access and collect data on their smartphones, tablets, and other portable devices. These construction-specific apps provide updated data about the productivity and health of the construction project. Therefore, mobile devices continue to impact construction productivity in 2019 by using the cloud to share data.
- Advancements in Modular Construction
Modular construction and prefabricated facilities enable projects to be completed 30 to 50 percent quicker than traditional construction. As modular homes are constructed off-site, the impact on the landscape is reduced as their components are built in factory environments. Moreover, modular construction is beneficial as material waste and weather delays are reduced, and they can be easily disassembled and relocated for other uses. They are easier, cheaper, and quicker to build as workers are familiar with the assembly methods. In 2019, modular and prefabricated construction is increasingly being used for commercial purposes, and gaining more popularity and followers in the real estate industry. Dynatect offers fast ball screw repair service along with lead and acme screws across North America.
- Better Software for Construction Management
Over the last few years, construction management software has improved steadily. More affordable packages are available that offer combinations of software for estimating and bidding, project design and management, scheduling, changing orders, billing, accounting, managing workforce, monitoring inventory, and much more. In 2019, more companies, both large and small, are utilizing integrated software solutions for construction management and operational efficiency. The top construction management software solutions reviewed in 2019 include Procore, Eclipse, BuildTools, Oracle Aconex, RADAR, CoConstruct, ComputerEase, and iAuditor.
Sustainability refers to a broader policy of using business models, resources, and methods that are favorable to this planet. It’s similar to green building, which focuses on reducing the carbon footprint of construction projects. But the goals of sustainable construction practices are broader than green construction, including the efficient use of resources, preservation of the natural environment, and promoting social progress. This includes making use of recycled building materials for construction projects. Consumers require that construction companies accommodate this trend in 2019.
