After the pandemic, the construction industry has seen a growing appetite for remote work culture. Construction companies have found it to be a nightmare to find skilled labor and adopt new construction technologies. But the pandemic significantly changed this feature.
We spoke with Sam Barakat to learn more about the change in construction trends in the next five years.
Who Did We Interview?
Sam Barakat is a Construction Expert & Arbitrator. He is a Professional Engineer and a licensed lawyer. Sam has diverse experience in the construction market and has worked on multi-agency projects that include DOTs, local cities, counties, ports, and private developers. He is a profound member of RLB North American corporate team.
I would not expect a major transformation for the year 2022, yet there is definitely a growing appetite for remote working.
Currently, the biggest challenge in our industry is the lack of skilled labor. The industry has to invent new tools and implement more policies and procedures to supplement the lack of efficiency that would be caused by the gap in skilled labor.
New tool and equipment technologies continue to emerge, saving contractors time and preserving profit.
I believe that the trends in the next five years will be the development of better AI tools and the implementation of better risk management policies and procedures. Also, I see the trend moving towards industrialized construction.
Moreover, there will be more reliance on prefabrication and module construction. This is one way to have more control over the risk created by uncertainty in the supply chain.
Get used to getting out of your comfort zone to achieve better results.
Sam Barakat has spent more than 12 years working on international construction projects. Through ongoing educational workshops, seminars, and other relevant training, he is continually improving his knowledge.
Sam has also presided as an arbitrator in several construction cases. And, over the years, he has provided multiple expert opinions on construction issues in arbitration and local courts.
