Technology: Construction's Modern–day Judge and Jury

Construction has become increasingly complex – especially as architects continue to define the possible with their one–of–a–kind vision – challenging general contractors to create innovative solutions to bring these designs to life. To make such designs a reality, the developer and the contractor need to collaborate, which can be done through Virtual Design and Construction (VDC).
Virtual design and construction (VDC) provides a tremendous platform for developers and contractors to collaborate. On any construction project, countless decisions have to be made and they require time. However, the use of VDC and virtual reality can allow for key decision–makers to experience the final product and adjust accordingly before the project even breaks ground. The commonality of purpose creates predictability for the final appearance of the project while avoiding timely and costly rework. The integration of design and construction has many benefits. But arguably the most important is that it can enhance the predictable delivery of an extremely complex project, resulting in a better experience for everyone involved.

Drones: The Future of Construction Applications
Drones are becoming a way of life in all commercial industries, especially in construction where manual reach to various places is very difficult, and traditional ways would take several field engineers for several days. An inspection job that would require several days setting up extensive scaffolding or bringing in a huge crane can now all be completed using UAS technology. UAS is an acronym used by the FAA for Unmanned Aircraft Systems.

Unmanned technology can be used in a number of ways in the commercial world. Drones can investigate and inspect a problem onsite and reach high–risk areas quickly and safely. Camera technology on most drones is lightyears ahead of where it was just a few years ago. Zoom cameras can read a driver‘s license from 300 feet away. Thermal cameras can identify water leaks that the naked eye can‘t see and do it safer than traditional methods.
Unmanned aircraft can give architects a view of what an adjacent structure would look in the planning phase, and show how the aesthetics will change a community‘s landscape in regards to open space on the ground and upwards. Likewise, commercial developers can sell condominium space before ground is even broken because a drone can show a potential buyer the exact view they would get within incredible accuracy. Drone technology is evolving at the speed of light with new technology being launched almost daily. It's hard to envision where the drone industry will be in next few years, but one thing is for certain; they are changing the landscape of commercial industry. It will be a fascinating ride.
