There has been a lot of discussion, (including from myself) about how construction is becoming aligned with more digitally advanced industries – but what does that look like on the ground through the construction lifecycle?
Digitalisation has begun to change how we fundamentally construct the physical world. New technologies are altering how we plan, design, construct and even maintain our built environment.

Turner, which oversees about 1,500 projects each year and has 5,000 employees around the world, was one of the first construction companies to develop and use technology tools.
While the productivity in the manufacturing industry has improved by four hundred percent (400%) over the last century, the construction industry’s productivity has, in the best case, stayed flat or turned negative.
