Current Technological Trends Impacting the Construction Sector

The construction equipment industry is projected to grow 12% from 2016 to 2026. As more and more researchers work on construction-related innovations and technology, those projections could even increase. All it takes is one new device, one new platform, or even one new idea to completely revolutionize the domestic and global construction sector.

According to Construction Equipment Guide, a new partnership between HammerHead Trenchless and Per Aarsleff Pipe Technology will bring innovative construction technology to organizations across the globe.

“This partnership is an ideal match,” said Kevin Smith, president of HammerHead Trenchless. “Aarsleff has developed a technology proven to greatly improve how contractors rehabilitate laterals, and HammerHead, as part of the Charles Machines Works Family of Companies, has the ability to advance that technology globally. Collaboration between our organizations will allow us to expand availability and maximize impact of new innovations, like the Bluelight System, now and in the future.”

Additionally, here are some of the latest technological trends that are revolutionizing the construction industry:

  • Autodesk to bring 3D, Virtual Reality, and Augmented Reality to CAD — Autodesk and Unity Technologies will bring its architecture, engineering, and construction clients one-click access to its 3D, virtual reality, and augmented reality platform.
  • International construction tech firms seal big funding rounds — Dubai-based WakeCap, developer of Internet of Things (IoT) hard hats, raised $1.6 million in seed funding.
  • DroneBase brings 4D to pilot network — Global drone operations company DroneBase announced a partnership with Hangar Technology, which automates the collection of spatial data to generate 4D visuals.

“As the world moves toward digital convergence, the construction industry has entered a new era of profound and enhanced data and technology sophistication,” said Jit Kee Chin, chief data officer at Suffolk.
