You might see a few drones buzzing around construction sites in the future. The construction industry is harnessing new technologies to make building faster, safer and more efficient. Messer Construction Co.’s innovations team predicts these new tools will enhance construction productivity.
Artificial intelligence: Tools built with artificial intelligence (AI) help construction teams work smarter. Job site cameras could identify safety hazards before an accident happens.
Robotics: Robots can already outperform humans on some construction craft tasks like masonry, but only when the project is straightforward.
3D printing: Imagine a concrete foundation that’s 3D-printed on site and installed by robotic arms.
