Other construction tech tools
Our Tech tools are not limited to software programs. Wearables, drones and more are changing the way construction sites operate.
According to the industry trade publication Construction World, wearable construction tools that support augmented reality will be a trend that continues to grow. AR allows users to visualize projects in a lifelike manner. Workers view layers and layers of plans using augmented reality glasses. Along with wearables, smartphones with cameras can access augmented reality tools.
Drones have become a mainstay at construction sites. Drones provide precise measurements for the construction firm and travel to areas of the site that are typically not safe for workers. Drones are highly cost-effective since they provide surveys at a fraction of the cost of traditional types.
Eco-friendly construction materials
More and more consumers are looking for green solutions including eco-friendly building materials. New types of plumbing tech have become one of the more popular requests within the construction industry. New options include rainwater harvesting systems and dual plumbing options. Clients also want the company to rely on equipment and automobiles that are greener. You can expect to see more companies utilizing electric trucks to reduce their carbon footprints.
