The role of technologies in our daily life cannot be side-lined. Without internet, mobile, Wi-Fi, laptop, tablet, etc. we will not be able to do our work and our life will come to a halt. Not only in day-to-day life but also in the construction industry the role of these technologies cannot be ignored.
With the help of it, the work gets completed on time. Not only this, the precision with which the work is done is amazing. However, there need to be two trained people who will handle and manage the functioning of the technologies used.
Moreover, one can also say that during this situation of COVID-19 these technologies have proved to be a blessing. This helps in maintaining the social distancing and does not hinder the work in any manner whatsoever.
Numerous technologies are being used these days that are adopted by various construction companies. Let us understand and know about the three such smart technologies that have been helpful in the construction industry.
1. Robots – More efficient than humans
With the help of robots, you will be able to complete the construction work with utmost ease. Many functions can be performed by these robots. It can do the loading, unloading, lifting, shifting, etc. The best part is that it is used mostly at a dangerous construction site. This also reduces any risk that any labor might face while doing the work.
Where the construction site is restricted and the major concern is space in those sites robots will do wonders. After using it the pace with which the work is done surely increases.
It has been noticed that in the dangerous sites where these drones were used the work was completed without any loss of human life. So, one can say the role of robots in today’s construction industry cannot be ignored at any cost whatsoever.
2. Drones – Gives clear aerial examination
These drones are amazing and very helpful in monitoring the overall site of construction. Not matter if the construction is carried at a larger scale or at some site that is dangerous this drone knows its work. It will give you a clear aerial picture by clicking photos, making videos, and also live coverage of the site itself.
So, just by sitting in one place, you will get an idea if there are some changes that have to be made. It ensures and gives precise 3D and 2D images.
The best part is that just one drone is needed to complete the task of aerial survey. Thus, one can say that it is one such investment that is worth it. By noting and understanding its benefits you will also want to buy one if you haven’t till now. It is a cost-effective and safest method adopted in today’s world when it comes to construction sites.
3. Modular Construction – Safe and Secure
This is the best method as it is safe and secure. The components to be used in the building are made on a site other than a construction site. After that, the components are transported to the actual site and the assembling of it takes place.
This is a good way to continue the work in this pandemic. COVID-19 has affected every industry in one or the other manner and this method is surely one that will save time and effort. You can also make use of orange traffic cones so that a straight signal is given that the site is dangerous for common people.
Due care is taken to see if all the protocols are followed so that the safety of laborers and other people working is not at stake. Sanitizing is also done to ensure that the whole workstation is a safe and secure place. The prefabricated modules that are prepared are windows, doors, floor systems, walls, etc.
The above-mentioned technologies are doing wonders and apart from these there are other technologies as well. Artificial intelligence, 3D printing, and clothes for workers that are IoT enabled are also used in construction work.
In the future, there might be other technologies that can be seen and this will help in the reduction of cost. It will also help in improving productivity and the work will be done with perfection.
