How Digitalisation Impacts Construction in Europe?
The construction industry in Europe has already stepped into the waters of digitalisation and is ready to swim with the tides of transformation.
FREMONT, CA: The construction industry in Europe might seem to be insulated against the digitalisation trends sweeping the other industries, but it is not. One look at the current practices in construction is enough to see how digital technologies have permeated the sector. Be it property design, workforce management, or building maintenance, Europe has already begun embracing digital construction. However, the question of stagnation is nowhere on the horizon. Innovative technologies are manifesting themselves in the form of digital solutions every other day and are determining the path for Europe’s construction industry. Some of the impacts of the current digital trends on Europe’s construction sector are enlisted.
• Security-Enabled Sensors
European construction companies have taken to sensors just like their counterparts in other industries. Sensors have opened up multiple sources of data that can be of critical value for the construction industry at various levels. Although advantageous, sensors also demand that stakeholders consider the security aspects of sensors as well. With responsible and secure use, the construction industry can have access to accurate information while complying with Europe’s stringent data privacy norms.
• Interoperability between Digital Solutions
Digitalisation has resulted in construction companies using multiple software solutions at various stages of the construction process. However, these solutions, coming from different construction technology vendors, often turn out to be incompatible as far as information sharing is concerned. But the situation is expected to improve with small and big vendors recognising the issue. One can expect to see European applications become interoperable, aiding hassle-free communication between systems.
• Increased Precedence of Artificial Intelligence
Europe is a technology hub and boasts of big advances in artificial intelligence. These advances translate into advantages for digital construction. Be it floor plans or cost estimations, artificial intelligence-backed applications are adding a smart edge to decision-making. Be it predicting outcomes, maintaining assets, or ensuring safety, every aspect is experiencing a positive change.
At the turn of a new decade, as Europe marches towards building smart cities and promoting sustainable living, digital construction is picking up the pace and propelling significant developments.
