A construction boom is coming. How to future proof your business

In this blog post, we take a brief look at what the current COVID-19 market conditions mean for construction demand, and how you can use FRAMECAD’s latest equipment releases and updates to succeed in times of uncertainty and, dare we say it, growth.

The demand for construction is not letting up. In fact, some experts are predicting a post-Coronavirus construction boom. Which is great news for the industry. But are you ready to use this to your advantage? During times of growth, uncertainty or change, the most successful businesses are those who adapt to meet the demands of the market.

Currently markets are asking for faster construction, particularly to support the healthcare sector and related industries. The ability to design and manufacture quickly and efficiently is key to your continued success. But as recent events have shown, these demands could change. A re-focus on hotel, multi-family, or commercial projects, in addition to medical-focused modular and pod solutions could be just around the corner.

The key to future success is ensuring your business is future-proofed to meet the coming market demand, whatever that looks like.

Modular Construction – Forging a New Path in Rapid Construction

As technology improves, so do construction techniques - often in ways that can be complex to understand. With so many burgeoning trends and methodologies, it can be challenging to decide which opportunities are worth the investment needed to properly evaluate and implement, and which are not.

Modular construction is one such technique that is worth considering. Industry experts have identified it as one of the key drivers of growth in 2020.

How technology is addressing challenges in the construction industry

Globally, skilled labor shortages are making it difficult to adequately staff projects and deliver quality work. In the same vein, poor productivity is another notable challenge for the construction industry, which is often unfavorably compared to manufacturing where significant efficiency gains have been made (an average of 1% global labor-productivity growth in construction compared to 3.6% for manufacturing, according to McKinsey.)  

Combined with the increasing pressure to adhere to ever more stringent health and safety requirements, and protect workers in increasingly complex environments, it’s easy to see why many companies struggle to stay competitive and profitable. Yet advances in technology are changing the way we work and can help companies overcome these challenges – here’s how.
