Although the construction industry has traditionally been reluctant to innovate, the last decade has brought about a tech revolution that is now gaining momentum. Here are three innovations that are taking the industry by storm:

Construction Drones

These days so many people buy drones for recreation that it’s become a mainstream item. In construction, drones are groundbreaking innovations that provide invaluable information during every phase of the project. They can be used for site surveys, contour maps model renderings and to create site plans. Construction drones also alleviate traditionally high-risk construction activities through real time monitoring.

Smart Buildings

In smart buildings automated processes are used to control elements like lighting, air conditioning, security and ventilation. To make this happen, sensors and microchips are built into buildings and connected to computer systems. The actual construction of buildings is also becoming smarter. Students at Barcelona’s Institute for Advanced Architecture have created a cooling building material
