What’s happening in the world of construction technology start ups?
This week I thought I’d share with you the recent research by McKinsey into construction technology start ups. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s well worth a read (you do have to get past the fact that they actually referred to “blueprints” – trust me it gets better). Interestingly while our historic focus at BILT has been the design phase of technology, out there in the world of start ups, it’s clear that a lot of people are realising construction is the main game – with the most obvious and largest potential benefits from new processes or technologies. McKinsey identified 200 design phase start ups and over 1000 construction phase start ups! If you haven’t come across McKinsey before, they are a management consulting company and their articles focus on issues such as leadership, strategy and change management across many sectors. If you are involved with implementing and managing new programs and technologies in your company, this article and many others on their website will have some great material for you.
If you are actively involved in either developing or using new technologies in construction, we would love to hear from you – and to see you present at BILT ANZ in Brisbane in 2018. Abstract submissions are now open and new technology in construction is one of our key areas of interest. To find out more, visit our website.
