The Marriage of Technology & Workmanship: Understanding the adoption of both to transform the future of construction.

The Construction Industry has often been labelled as being notoriously slow at adopting new technologies. According to the McKinsey Global Institute’s industry digitisation index, lagging construction productivity costs the global economy in excess of $1 trillion a year, and pin the construction space as second to last in the US, and last in Europe in its position as a digitised sector. Employing about 7% of the world’s working-age population, how is the industry actively attempting to find the balance between technology disruption and workmanship, while addressing unproductivity and building a momentum that encourages the transformation of a highly complex, fragmented space, to become more standardised, consolidated and integrated.

This roundtable discussion explored the ways in which the Construction Industry is actively taking steps to address current challenges through finding a balance between technology adoption and skilled workmanship. 

We’d like to send our thanks to each of the individuals who spent the afternoon with us, and participated in the dicussion.
