Key Technologies In Construction

almost 2 years ago by

The construction industry has definitely seen its fare share of innovative technologies over the years, so we thought we would take a look at some of the most interesting and helpful innovations.

Below are our top picks but which one do you think has helped the most? 



This technology really has changed the way construction professionals see things. Many more companies across the world are now employing drone pilots to monitor progress on sites and it’s proving very successful.

It was recently announced that drones would be used on a huge Anglian Water Scheme, and we think it won’t be long until drones are being used by every construction company across the UK.

Mobile Apps 

This is an interesting technology that we regularly take for granted, as mobile apps are just a part of our every day lives, from catching up on daily news to staying connected with your friends.

However, we still think that this technology is hugely innovative. The construction industry and construction professionals are hugely benefiting from construction-focused apps, such as calculating apps, which help construction professionals better calculate supplies and CAD apps that make it possible to make blueprint changes in an instant.


It feels like this technology has been around for ages but it really hasn’t. These have been a huge benefit for construction professionals. Gone are the days of carrying bundles of paperwork from the office to the site, as all you need these days is a tablet.

Another benefit is the fact that you can also connect to the internet when you’re on site, allowing you to share important documents and easily communicate with colleagues, clients and suppliers.

Modular Construction

This technology is becoming increasingly popular for construction companies. There are many reasons why this is the case but the two key benefits are that it helps limit environmental disruption and has strong sustainability benefits, which includes less waste and fewer vehicle movements.
