High Tech Building Advancements In 2019

The construction industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world, which is why people are taking a lot of interest in this business sector. If it hadn’t been for massive improvement in the tech building area, it would take a lot of time to erect a structure from the ground up. 2019 Is a year which has unfolded many interesting advancements for almost every industry. When we talk about the evolvement of construction technology, the emphasis is often ascribed to the installation of heavy equipment on-site, however things have gone way beyond our imagination. In this article we report some breakthroughs of tech advancement in the construction industry.

You will be intrigued to know the construction industry contributes more than 4% to the US GDP, which is in millions. Therefore there's no hesitation in stating the fact that this industry is blooming to fuel the economy. Some massive improvements in the tech building sector this year are:

1. 3D printing

Earlier architects took days and months to finalize the design of a building, which would go through massive changes. However when engineers invented 3D printing, architects’ and designers’ work was made easy. The best part about 3D printing is that it is less costly and saves a lot of time. In the construction sector, 3D printing has a completely different role to play, because architects need to have a perspective on full-sized projects. A milestone in the history of 3D printing was when two bridges were constructed in 2017 with its help.

2. Virtual Reality

As discussed, 3D printing is an important element in the construction industry and crucial for the project through completion. Virtual reality is imperative because it has the power to show the outcome of the project in advance. This means architects can identify the flaws in advance and work them out before putting everything together. Virtual reality helps architects to prepare a building so that it can withstand natural disasters and other problems. This advancement in the construction sector helps in curtailing many issues.

3. Humanoid Laborers

Ever since the inception of robots into this sector, humans have not had to invest a lot of money in hiring people to perform manual labor. Humanoid laborers are being used in almost all of the factories in the world. Japanese workers have incorporated humanoid robots which can perform many basic tasks like picking up things, drawing on the walls and even cooking. Other types of robots include semi-automated robots that take half the time to do a task as compared to normal humans.

4. Drones

Drone technology is one of the fastest-growing technologies in the world, and common in the photographic world also. Construction drones are crucial as they can identify possible issues overlooked during the construction process. You will be intrigued to know that construction drones have increased security and safety at worksites by a whopping 55%. Had it not been for construction drones, people would have to endure a lot of problems in this day and age. Such drones are inexpensive and important equipment at sites. For example: if an ac repair needs to be done in the ceiling, a drone can identify the issue quickly.

5. Material Advancement

Talking about massive advancements in equipment and software is not enough. There has been massive advancement in building materials as well. Architects realized the importance of incorporating good quality materials, and many things have changed in the last few years. The ethos behind improving materials was to improve sustainability, reduce costs, cut down on pollution and create a building able to withstand critical situations. A simple example is of self-healing concrete that can repair its cracks on its own.
