The Paperless Construction Site

Digitalization is changing the construction industry faster than expected. But will we ever see paperless construction sites? Digitalization is changing the construction industry faster than expected. Automation, additional sensors and the networking of machines make it possible to exploit optimization potential and noticeably increase productivity. However, despite innovative working methods and digitization, the road construction process is still mainly based on one medium: paper. Will we ever see paperless construction sites? Paper can be used for a wide variety of purposes and offers unlimited flexibility. Construction schedules, work schedules, work sheets, mix orders and requirement slips are still created manually...

The Digitalization of Construction

Creating an Industry Fit for the Future
It is estimated that the global construction industry will grow to US$10.3 trillion by 2020. Arguably, the development and investment in ever-more innovative digital tools will be key in enabling that growth. More and more businesses across Europe are beginning to embrace the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) and the opportunities digitalization presents. In this article, Leighton Davies, regional business manager for geopositioning at Topcon Europe Positioning, discusses how today’s technologies enable us to work more efficiently, safely and accurately than ever before, and what they could mean for the construction industry’s future. At the turn of the millennium, who would... (read more)

3D Modelling for Construction

When it comes to 3D modelling for construction, what are the advantages and disadvantages of photogrammetry versus Lidar in terms of accuracy, complexity and cost? Breaking away from laser measurement in construction is a taboo subject, perhaps hampering the use of photogrammetry. In construction, aerial survey has enormous time-saving benefits for measuring groundwork areas. Data can be used for asset classification, construction validation as well as health and safety. In particular, regular scans provide a time series of work in progress to detect new issues, managing risk rather than responding to it. This article looks at the state of the... (read more)

What is 4D Construction?

As 3D building information modelling (BIM) continues to be the technology-enabled process for design delivery, construction firms have looked for ways to leverage these 3D BIM models for downstream construction workflows. Now, engineers are incorporating 4D modelling to their workflows. The concept adds a time dimension to the 3D CAD model that enables teams to analyse the sequence of events on a timeline and visualize the completion of construction tasks. This concept can be extended to 'nD', where additional dimensions represent other types of information added to the 3D model context. Engineers, construction managers, and contractors are leveraging 4D construction... (read more)

Automate Construction or Become Obsolete

Technological advancements have encompassed industries around the world. However, the land and infrastructure industry has been wary of treading digitally, due to a fear of high capital involvement. In this blog, Yogesh Khandelwal, CEO of geoAMPS, an India-based company specialized in software solutions serving the land rights and infrastructure management industries, shares his vision on the necessity to embrace digitalization as a key pillar of the construction industry in the next decade. Barriers to upgrading In the endeavor to cut capital costs, a lot of companies refrain from deploying available advanced technologies and are hence left behind the times. While... (read more)
