Lead The Industry with ProjectPro, An All-in-one Construction SoftwareSimplifying your business operations with integrated construction accounting and project management capabilities
In the past few years, technology adoption has become a new trend in the construction industry. This is because of the pandemic that enforced contractors to push their boundaries and eliminate outdated tools and techniques.
Moreover, technology will continue to see accelerated adoption as construction leaders deal with eliminating inefficiencies, improving productivity, and adapting to a younger workforce of digital natives that expect to work with technology.
To put some light on the same, we interviewed Justin Gill to understand his views on the rising construction technologies.
Who Did We Interview?
Justin Gill is a developer, builder, investor, speaker, entrepreneur, author, mentor, and franchisor. He has been in the industry for decades now, delivering excellent solutions to construction professionals.
Without a doubt, there have been challenges for the industry with material supply shortages and labor shortages. I think there will be a slow transition across to digital for the construction professionals based on less contact with consumers.
I really believe the biggest challenge for the industry is the lack of knowledge of incoming trades, which is causing price increases for labor and delay in the construction timelines.
Quality assurance has definitely been simplified along with the ability to monitor and measure project timelines of contractors and staff, using electronic modes of communication.
As long as there is a demand for housing, the construction industry will keep strong; however, a lot of this depends on government regulation in many forms, including immigration taxation and grants for clients. We have seen in the past that the government often pulls levers to drive the direction of housing based on the media agenda and communication that is not based on true facts of supply and demand.
Technology will Create Efficiencies.
Invest in yourself and never give up.
Justin Gill was a carpenter by trade who completed his apprenticeship in Northern Victoria, moved to Darwin NT in the late 90's and "fell into business". He ran a contracting team of carpenters with a business partner before starting to do renovations and custom built homes under a brand name.
Over the years he progressed and opened his own new company. He is also an award-winner for various projects.
