Let Us Quickly Get To Our Expert’s Point Of View.

Question 1: In the age of COVID-19, how do you see the construction industry in the year 2022? Do you think this year will be a “digital year” for construction professionals?

In my opinion, COVID is over! Construction cannot be performed virtually. However, due to geographical considerations and or time constraints a virtual meeting or two could be in order. But not the norm to replace face to face meetings especially with a bigger group.

Question 2: The construction industry has undergone dynamic changes over the years. What do you consider as the biggest challenge for this industry now?

Labor shortages. At all levels. From the workers that actually perform the work to the leaders that manage the work. Inflation is number 2.

Question 3: What potential do you see in the latest construction technology trends? Are they capable of boosting the productivity of construction professionals?

Certainly, Enterprise Reporting Programs, such as PROCORE or Prolog are a boon to the construction industry. The more technology that can be incorporated into the day to day operations and documentation of the building process the better. Look for AI, VR, AR, Robotics, BIM, Modular, and 3d-printing to make big impacts.

Question 4: Where do you see the construction industry in the next five years? Please share your valuable insights with our readers.

I am very bullish on this industry. Given the current state of our infrastructure, Airports for instance, I see multi-billion-dollar programs taking place all over the USA.
