Civil Construction: 5 Technological Innovations

Construc?a?o Civil | SomaFuture

Construction is a sector that is constantly changing and looking for technological innovations in order to make the process more efficient and sustainable. Discover the top 5 innovations that are transforming the construction industry and how they can help improve the sector.

3D Printing of Buildings

3D 3D printing of constructions is one of the most promising technological innovations in the construction sector. With this technology we can print construction parts and components on a large scale, reducing the time and cost of construction. Likewise, 3D printing allows the creation of more complex and customised designs, making construction efficient and sustainable.


Augmented and Virtual Reality in Construction

Another of the technological innovations that is revolutionising construction is augmented and virtual reality. With this type of technology we can create virtual models of buildings and visualise them in real time. In this way, builders and architects can see how the construction will look before they even start work. In this way, we reduce the time and cost of construction, and it also allows us to detect possible problems before they occur.


Drones para inspeção e monitoramento na Construção Civil

Drones are increasingly being used for the inspection and monitoring of construction sites. With the help of cameras and sensors, drones can capture images and precise data on the progress of the construction site, identify potential problems, as well as carry out inspections in areas that are difficult to access. In this way, on the one hand we guarantee the safety of the workers, and on the other, the quality of the construction. In the same way we reduce the time and cost of this inspection.


Sensors and Internet of Things for monitoring equipment and materials 

By installing sensors on machines and materials, real-time data can be collected on the performance and condition of equipment, as well as the use and stock of materials. This enables project managers to make more informed and accurate decisions about resource use, reducing waste and increasing site efficiency.


Artificial intelligence for process optimisation and decision making

Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly present in the construction industry, helping to optimise processes and make more accurate and informed decisions. For example, AI algorithms can analyse data from sensors and other sources to predict failures in equipment and materials. That way, project managers take preventative measures before problems occur. In addition, AI can be used to optimise site planning, taking into account factors such as weather, traffic and resource availability.
