Well, there have been some super exciting tech trends unfolding in the construction and building industry this year- and for good reason.
Best of all, it’s showing no signs of slowing down.
In fact, the current technology trends in construction are reshaping the industry. Increasing profit margins, winning more builders more projects and improving safety are just some of the benefits.
So let’s get prepared for 2021 by looking into some of the best construction tech trends making crane operation, construction, and building safer, smarter, and smoother
1. Get a bird’s eye view of your construction site using drones
Whether you’re lifting roof trusses, steel beams, installing a pool, or dropping loads over long distances, you can avoid wasting a lot of time, energy, and money using a drone.
You can scope out the construction site beforehand to survey the area for potential safety issues and more.
With a built-in monitor and remote control pad, you’ll get a real birds-eye view of your job site.
And with the Liebherr Mobile https://regalcranehire.com.au/wp-content/uploads/55T-Crane-LIEBHERR_55_T_ALL_TERRIAN_1_1.pdf All-Terrain Crane and drone tech in hand, residential and commercial builders, developers, crane operators, and others are working smarter, faster, safer, and better.
2. 3D Visuals for Construction Planning, Mapping and Monitoring
From designing the structure to ordering materials and logistics, we know there’s plenty involved within construction planning. This is where 3D visual imaging technology can play a part in planning and minimising stress.
Depending on the avenue you choose, you can create a 3D virtual tour of your site, and have access to a foolproof, accurate 3D view throughout all the stages of your project. It’s also an excellent way to highlight any areas with constrained access and will help you decide what crane/s you’ll need for the job.
3. Virtual Reality (VR) One of the Greatest Construction Tech Trends of 2020
Yup, it’s not just for the hardcore gamers anymore.VR can be an extremely reliable tool when it comes to keeping project outcomes and safety in check. Hand in hand with 3D visuals, you can view the entire construction site as planned in a virtual view to confirm any amendments to make to the load, surroundings, or crane placement!
4. Smart Safety Wear
First, there were smartphones. Then there were smart TV’s and smartwatches, and now we’ve jumped all the way to smart boots, smart hard hats, and other types of smart workwear. Although we’re not quite sure how we got to this point, these smart devices can make one clever construction worker that tad bit cleverer.
The prototypes have found to bring pretty sweet results, too.
“…integration of wearable devices factors  suggests adopting safety technology can curb the increasing number of workplace injuries and fatalities in the construction industry.” CCC 2019
Amongst their long list of perks, benefits include height warnings, safety alerts, enhanced task coordination, and more.
But we all know safety starts with training, processes, experience, the machinery and people you’re working with and the area you’re working within amongst other things. And sourcing the right type of crane for the right purpose, terrain, and building project also goes a long way to ensuring safety too.

Well, there’s no shortage of tech trends to keep your eye on and implement into your building and construction services in 2021.
The current tech trends in construction such as drones, 3D and the smart safety wear we’ve mentioned above are just a fraction of them, and they will continue to develop as will new technology.
The fact of the matter is by utilising the latest trends in construction technology, your building project, your team, profit margins and your safety will be lifted to new heights of success.
Of course, no job will ever be completed without the necessary equipment.
