The regulatory environment around the environmentally sustainable building is pushing up costs.
Capricious clients and architects are slowing down the workflow and making it difficult to plan accurately.
In recent years, the digitization process in construction has been initiated. Nevertheless, the industry still has a long way to go in that field. Only farming is performing more poorly than construction. However, building companies are aware that digital applications provide greater efficiency and productivity and reduced costs. There is no turning back. The digitization process is unstoppable, as is the smartening of our homes, buildings, and even entire quarters or cities.
Building and construction don’t have a sexy image and are not very attractive to many young people because of the strenuous working hours, the perception of muckiness, and a lack of physical safety. The quest for much-needed incoming talent is challenging.
The sector aims to contend with its image, promote safety, and prepare for new professions such as BIM manager and drone pilot. One of the things being looked at is how to use foreign workers for bottleneck jobs in a conventional way.
Product and process innovation and industrialization are gaining importance, so we are now facing a breakthrough in construction. Industrial construction is increasingly off-site production and on-site assembly. Production capacity can grow by moving part of the construction activities from the building site to the workplace. More can then be realized with the same number of people. Moreover, the price can decrease when scaling up homes and building components produced according to an industrial method. In short: the production capacity can be increased so that the supply grows, and the practice of production ensures that costs can be reduced. Industrialization in the construction industry, wherever possible, is necessary to meet building needs in the long term.
