Joule Group is looking forward to the 2019 Construction technology Forum in Dubai on the 24th and 25th of September 2019.
We will be a start-up sponsor and showcasing our digital platform, TFS Compliance;
As part of this exciting event, we were also asked about what we think the future holds for the industry – thanks goes out to David Black for his insight below;
Q) What are your predictions for how megatrends will impact the construction industry in 2050?
Given the current rate of change in technology and the likelihood that this will increase year on year it is very difficult to predict where the industry will be in 2050. However, I believe we will see the common use of virtual reality and augmented reality across the industry. AI and machine learning will be commonplace and will drive automation across the industry from the way we design buildings to the way that they are constructed.
Q) How will they change the face of the industry, particularly in the Middle East?
The use of these technologies will see the increase in “full-stack” vertically integrated providers, i.e. companies that provide end-to-end construction services and are in full control of everything from raw materials to building occupation.
