Community Session: Why we need a real-time picture of the construction site?

Watch the stream recording

The third WDBE2021 Community Session explored technologies that improve construction productivity by 20-50%

Real-time process control and management is no longer the prerogative of factories. With reality capture, IoT, data integration, and project management technologies, any construction site can achieve a similar control and foresight level.

Moreover, the technologies can be deployed by different participants for different purposes – from subcontractors to main contractors and project managers, to clients. Critical questions include participants’ willingness to share their data with collaborators to gain real project insights. 


The international webinar featured trailblazers in real-time construction site technology

The attendees heard about practical examples of technology deployments on construction sites, from businesses that are exploring new ways of working digitally.
