Predicting the disruption of the global construction industry (Part 2 of 2)

Posted by FRAMECAD on Aug 10, 2017 9:52:46 AM

In the first part of this two-part blog series, we looked at McKinsey’s report Imagining construction’s digital future, that asserted the global construction industry is “ripe for digital disruption”.

With the majority of the world’s industries now reliant on software  and on the Internet to produce efficiencies previously unattainable through traditional practices, it’s only logical for the construction industry to become similarly digitally aligned.

This blog goes into detail about how FRAMECAD is perfectly placed to be a central part of the construction industry’s shift into a digital future.
