The construction industry has not typically been known for its embrace of technological innovation. However, as discussed in the future of construction article, companies are increasingly looking to overcome several challenges — from a shortage of skilled labor to the rising costs of materials — with the adoption of new technologies. Wearables, telematics, sensing technology, and autonomous vehicles are some of the leading innovations that can help promote sustainable growth and create efficiencies in how companies operate.

One challenge facing companies is sourcing the most appropriate solutions for their particular needs and selecting the providers that can best bring about new operational, process, and revenue possibilities.

In the videos below hear from specialists on how companies can select the technology providers and partners that best suit their needs.

Latium Technologies discusses Internet of Things (IoT) solutions — devices with sensors and other technologies that collect and exchange data to allow for a more efficient building process while mitigating risk.

Topics covered in the conversation include:

  • An overview of current IoT products and capabilities
  • The importance of project appropriate and timely product specification
  • Examples of “losses” avoided thanks to IoT technologies
  • Misconceptions of IoT solutions
  • Common IoT considerations for contractors
  • The future of IoT
