As builders, we love to create and innovate. But creating something from nothing requires intense planning and a full team of skilled workers to collaboratively complete the project on time and on budget. As the industry has evolved, so too have the tools and technology that enable all of us to continue getting even better at our jobs.
Ushering in a New Era of Change
Some changes are slow to take hold. Others come on swiftly with no turning back. And as we’ve noted previously, COVID-19 has been a catalyst for some of these changes.
The global pandemic has brought on many short- and long-term effects that have impacted the way we get work done. One big factor that has enabled us to continue to innovate in our builds and complete them on time and on budget is technology.
From everything from improvements in the materials we use to the technology we rely on to communicate with our clients, technology is having an impact. Here are just a few of the ways it is playing a role in construction.
- Pre-construction – We’ve been able to save our clients time and money by connecting online for the all-important pre-construction meetings that we deem essential to the success of any new project. Leveraging virtual meeting platforms enables us to connect with our clients whenever and wherever they are in the world.
- Mobile technology – Our project managers can provide status updates and connect in real time with apps and technology to improve communication and productivity.
- Drones – This emerging technology is being used to conduct site surveys, inspections, and more. Drones are especially helpful when used on more dangerous tasks like inspecting tall buildings.
- 3D Modeling – Imagine being able to better experience what your space will look like before even building it. With 3D modeling, that’s what you can get. With modeling, we can mold two-dimensional plans into a 3D experience, which is more than just having fun with technology. It can also play an important role in preventing major changes from happening mid-way through a project and assist in finding any potential conflicts with the plans.
At Seacoast Construction, we work to give our clients the best experience and outcome possible and deliver on our commitments each and every time. Technology plays an important role in doing just that. If you’re ready to start your next commercial construction project in South Florida, get in touch today.
