Top 20 Construction Technology Companies - 2017
While technologies such as 3D printing and Augmented Reality (AR) have already ingrained into the market and captured our attention for future innovations, the time consumed to do so pinpoints how construction industry has majorly been a laggard in adopting technology. However, of late, the industry has witnessed ascend in the number of construction-tech providers entering the market, indicating that the investments made to boost construction technology are for good and the industry is ripe to embrace disruptive innovations.
As smart buildings and energy-saving commercial establishments are gaining traction as 2017’s newest construction trends, construction professionals are ever more persevered to invest on newer technologies and environment-friendly on-site project delivery methods such as cool roofs, cotton insulation, and electro-chromic smart glass to ensure lesser wastage and foster a healthier and cleaner environment.
On the hind side, construction methods such as offsite construction practices (prefabrication) are also gaining grounds for its ability to shrink deadlines, cut costs and maintain greater control over production quality. To better administer a project at construction site, unmanned aerial vehicles and auto-bots are helping construction professionals to track progress in real-time by generating 3D images.
A distinguished panel comprising CEOs, CIOs, VCs, and analysts including CIOReview editorial board reviewed the top companies and shortlisted the ones that are at the forefront of bringing evolutionary changes to the construction domain. The companies compiled in this issue have exhibited extensive business process knowledge, along with innovative strategies in the construction landscape.
