In the last few weeks, we have embarked on a blog series, looking at general technology trends, the digital infrastructure needed, and specific technologies that will impact construction. We have also explored what the worker and customer wants and how that influences construction, with a focus last week on cities of the future. Today, let’s narrow in on the home of the future.

Last week, we dove into the concept of TX (total experience), looking at how higher digital expectations from customers are driving innovations in multiple industries. For construction, this has big implications, especially with the recently passed infrastructure bill. How do we create a better user experience in cities and with infrastructure? How do we offer greater connectivity and insights? How do we create a better and more connected city?

What technologies will take center stage in 2022? This is a conversation we have been having for the last few weeks, looking at general technology trends, the digital infrastructure needed, and specific technologies like the combination of AR and AI. Today, let’s look at a general trend that will likely impact tech use in the future: what the customer ultimately wants.

We are in the middle of a blog series, focusing on trends that will have a big impact on construction in the year ahead. So far, we have mostly looked at technology trends impacting the industry. Today, let’s take a closer look at societal trends. Perhaps the first, most obvious, one that comes to mind is the worker.

We are nearing the end of the year, which makes it a great opportunity to look to the year ahead. Thus, we are in the middle of a blog series, looking at predictions for 2022 and beyond. In this series, we have looked at general technology trends and the digital infrastructure needed to enable it all. Today, let’s narrow in on specific technologies that will likely impact construction in 2022—if they aren’t impacting your business already.

In the past three weeks we have explored the worker shortage, focusing on solutions like work flexibility and mentorship the first week; the importance of technology to entice workers the second; and how technology can help automate and add intelligence the third. Now, let’s take a closer look at what’s next specifically for construction, and the importance of focusing on the worker in the years to come.

We are embarking on a short blog series focusing on the worker shortage and how it is a challenge that is impacting nearly every construction business. Last week, we dug into how we got here and some solutions like work flexibility and mentorship. This week let’s dig into other potential solutions—specifically technology—and how this might help in myriad ways.

The worker shortage is a global challenge that is impacting nearly every business—large and small—and nearly every industry, certainly construction. We all know this problem existed long before the COVID-19 pandemic. Still, much has changed in the last 18 months, as a result of the pandemic, in businesses worldwide. Let’s take a look at where we are at today.
