New technologies that contractors should take advantage of.

In today’s competitive construction landscape, contractors are looking for anything that will give them an edge over their rivals.  One way that contractors can set themselves apart is by adopting emerging technologies.  Here are some of the new technologies that contractors should take advantage of.

  • Drones

Drones are becoming increasingly popular in the construction industry.  Drone technology enables contractors to remotely survey building sites, keep up with project progress, and monitor worker safety.  Not only do drones save time and improve project timelines, but they also play a major role in reducing costly construction site accidents as well.

  • 3D Printing

Many contractors are also experimenting with 3D printing technology.  Not only can these machines be used to create building models, but they can also be used to quickly and cost-effectively print building components and replacement parts for key pieces of equipment.  Having a 3D printer on your construction site can help you avoid delays caused by broken parts and missing building components.

  • Wearables

Wearable technologies, such as smart sensors, can help contractors improve their efficiency, safety, and productivity.  Wearables keep track of workers’ locations and can automatically detect safety issues such as falls, unsafe body temperatures, and so on.  Workers can also use wearables to report incidents and hazards in real-time.

These are some of the new technologies that contractors should take advantage of.  Are you interested in keeping up with the latest construction tech trends?  If so, then contact your Pleasanton contractor at Proforma Construction.   Serving Pleasanton and the surrounding California area, our highly-trained team is ready to make your commercial construction dreams a reality.
