Technology in construction is reshaping the industry

The construction industry is constantly evolving. Through the pandemic, the construction sector has seen how embracing technology and digitalization can accelerate efforts for maximized efficiency and productivity. The recovery of the sector is sure to be digital.

Utilizing innovation at all levels of the supply chain will yield new ways for the construction sector to generate value and promote an industry-wide commitment to change. Embracing technology, and fostering collaboration is key to tackling the skills shortage and fostering a more diverse and sustainable industry. Technology, however, does not drive digital transformation alone; it also relies on investing in research and development, knowledge sharing between stakeholders, empowering employees with smarter skills to achieve consistency across all phases of a project, and learning from start-ups and other industry sectors.

The FutureTech Construction Summit will strive to push progress with actionable learnings which will reimagine what the future will look like for the construction sector.
