The Construction industry is the largest industry in the world, but the slowest industry to adapt to new changes. There are many reasons to this. People in the construction industry are the most skilled craftsman. If anyone knows someone that is in construction, the first person to call is a friend or family member in construction whenever there is a hands-on question or issue. The best part of construction is that it still cannot be done by robots or machines. Items may be prefabricated or made by machines, but it is a person constructing a building. Such a hands-on industry makes it hard to advance in technology.
Technology has been used in construction to not physically replace people from the hands-on jobs of construction. Today technology is used to help manage and organize jobsites. Programs help owners decided on what a room will look like before a hole is even dug in the ground for the building. Owners are able to see what the lighting in a room will look like, and walk through the building on a computer. Contractors are able to foresee issues that were almost impossible to see before 3D drawings. The city with a construction industry that coordinates technology the best can possible have the largest construction industry. If owners know they can get the best prices with the best result, they will build in that location.
