Top 20 Construction Tech Solution Companies - 2020

Construction technology refers to the collection of innovative tools, machinery, modifications, and software used during the construction phase of a project. This includes semi-automated and automated construction equipment and preconstruction technology such as online bid boards, bid management apps and other digital takeoff solutions. Today, new technologies in construction are being developed at a breakneck pace, for instance connected equipment and tools, telematics, mobile apps, autonomous heavy equipment, drones, robots, augmented and virtual reality, and 3D printed buildings.

Mobile apps are becoming a norm in construction due to the increased portability of tablets and smartphones allowing for greater communication and the ability to work remotely. Mobile technology also helps save time and keeps construction projects moving forward faster by providing real-time updates and making information available between the jobsite and the office. The construction industry is also seeing the implementation of artificial intelligence on the job site with the use of robotics for tasks like bricklaying and other autonomous equipment. On a similar note, drones are the most widely used emerging construction technology as they can conduct site surveys more accurately and are cheaper than aerial imaging. Building information technology which is similar to CAD is also being used by a significant number of builders to create a visual 3D model of a building to aid in the design and planning stages of a project.

At this juncture, there are a wide variety of solutions providers entering the industry with a set of advanced construction technology solutions.
