Digital transformation in the construction sector

Join our expert panel at 10:00 - 11:00 am BST on Wednesday 3rd June 2020 to explore the possible future of technology and automation in the construction sector.

14 May 2020

The construction sector has yet to futureproof itself for the demands of the 21st century. Estimates suggest that less than 1% of global construction revenues are reinvested into research and development – markedly short of levels invested by industries of comparable size and importance. Much has been said and written of the revolutionary potential of a more automated construction sector, but with 13% of global GDP and 7% of the world’s workforce in question, the significance of the challenge, and the scale of the opportunity, is great.

Key takeaways:

  • learn how emerging technologies are levelling up the construction sector;
  • better understand how the Covid-19 crisis is accelerating the need for automation on site; and
  • consider the implications of automation for the labour force.
