Question 1: What projects/initiatives are you working on at the moment?

I am currently working on VSM, Commission Structures at the moment.

Question 2: According to you, what Construction Technology and Management Trends could make the maximum Impact on the Industry in 2022? How Technology Will Enable Construction Continuity in 2022?

I believe Cyber Security and Micro Learning concepts are important trends that could make the maximum impact in the industry in 2021. Construction technology will enable continuity as it will smoothen workflows, improve productivity and grow revenue for owners.

Question 3: What potential do you see in construction technology for leveraging overall business productivity with construction projects, especially when we talk about recovery and growth after the pandemic?

Technology moves slower in Construction so I believe that the normal trend towards leveraging technology will continue and construction best practices need to be adopted. I also think that the use of robots and prefabs will become more popular especially when we talk about recovery and growth after the pandemic.

Question 4: Do you believe COVID-19 has turned out to be the Catalyst for Digital Adoption? Do you think the trend will sustain once the pandemic ends?

No, I don’t believe that COVID-19 has turned out to be the catalyst for digital adoption. This is because technology adoption is slower as far as the construction industry is concerned , so I believe COVID-19 will be a blip instead of a catalyst.
