Construction Projects Have Been Slow to Adopt Cutting-Edge Tech, But Change Is on the Horizon

This is the era of disruption. Long-stable business models are crumbling. Transformative new tech has made operations faster and more efficient, forcing giants of industry to pivot, or perish. Yet the construction sector has stood conspicuously apart from this trend. In a report released last year, KPMG noted that only 8 percent of construction and engineering firms are "cutting-edge visionaries,"" with 69 percent considered "followers" or "behind the curve." In general, contractors have been slow to change tried-and-true techniques, resisting the winds of change like so much steel and concrete.
