Lead The Industry with ProjectPro, An All-in-one Construction SoftwareSimplifying your business operations with integrated construction accounting and project management capabilities
As we know, the construction industry has never been the most technologically advanced sector. However, the past few years have shown promising technological progress in the construction industry. It is helping construction companies to reach high levels of efficiency.
From safety training and casualty prevention to AR building assistance, technology certainly belongs on the drafting table and the construction site. Technology is also helping to fill the gap created by the labor shortage and increasing operational efficiency.
In this matter, we interviewed the construction industry expert—Mulalo (Sydney) Mudau to understand his perspective.
Who Did We Interview?
Mulalo is a Project Manager with over 20 years of international experience on major civil engineering infrastructure projects in private and government sectors in project management roles. He is also a member of the Board of Directors with PMI® Sydney Chapter.
He comprehensively contributes to developing client relationships through preparing proposals, tenders, estimating, scheduling, team coordination, cost reporting, executing, and handing over various projects.
The construction industry has been using digital for some time now. Digital is a valuable tool for design and asset maintenance. But it needs to do a lot more for digital adaptation. More training is required, and IT systems have to be upgraded to suit. COVID-19 only highlighted the need for the industry to improve quickly.
The construction industry views a 6-day working week as the norm. Balancing ESG, diversity, and work-life balance with a 6-day week is a challenge.
Some technologies could assist in process automation in project control, i.e., Power BI. But the industry needs to be trained to use these technologies to boost productivity successfully.
I see the construction industry putting more focus on reducing its carbon footprint. But other sectors, such as manufacturing, will likely be ahead. Hence the construction industry will probably be trying to catch up with the other industries. With decarbonization at the top of each country's target, the construction industry will have to innovate faster.
Continuous Improvement Implementation.
Not be afraid to step back to go forward.
Mulalo is a Principal Project Manager with years of experience in the construction industry. He is a highly enthusiastic, industrious, conscientious, reliable, and hard-working project manager.
He has worked on several projects, such as roads, railways, dams, water supplies, bridges, asset management, and mining infrastructure, amongst others, on greenfields and brownfields.
