Trends For 2022 In The Construction Industry
by XAMTA INFOTECH Construction Industry, August 2, 2022
As we enter the new year of 2022, it becomes crucial to reflect on the past and look towards the future, ensuring preparedness to leverage upcoming trends and learn from past challenges. Having recapped the trends of 2021, let's explore the construction industry trends anticipated for 2022.
Continued Focus On Safety Measures With A Focus On Technology
In 2022, experts anticipate an ongoing emphasis on ensuring the safety of construction staff. Technologies like virtual reality and augmented reality are expected to play a significant role in enhancing workplace safety. Drones and computer prototypes will be instrumental in identifying potential project hazards, preventing incidents, and training new staff efficiently.
The Rise In Modular Construction Continues
The trend towards off-site building, seen prominently in 2021, is expected to persist in 2022. Modular construction, involving the off-site construction of building modules assembled on-site, offers benefits such as savings, time efficiency, and freedom from weather delays. While advantageous, it's essential for companies to weigh the pros and cons of this growing trend.
Retaining And Keeping Skilled Staff
Labor shortages, a challenge in 2021, are expected to continue into 2022. Construction companies will need to explore new recruitment strategies while prioritizing the retention of skilled workers. Survey results indicate that companies are actively increasing wages and benefits to attract and retain staff. Maintaining competitive compensation packages is crucial to retaining skilled personnel.
Technology Integration Is Here To Stay
In 2022, the construction industry will witness greater adoption and utilization of existing technologies and the introduction of new construction technologies.
Digitalization of the Field and Office: Investing in digitalization, advanced automation, and innovative materials can result in a significant productivity boost, as per a report from McKinsey Global Institute. Digitalization opportunities extend to both field and office operations, with software solutions like XAMTA INFOTECH’s Odoo Construction Software facilitating streamlined processes.
Wearable Technology: Smart wearables are poised to impact the construction industry in terms of safety and efficiency. These devices can collect, transmit, and store data about worker locations, safety hazards, biometric information, and more. Wearable technology, including smart helmets and bionic suits, is expected to gain traction in 2022.
BIM (Building Information Modeling): BIM technology, allowing the generation of 3D models and digital representations of projects, is anticipated to be adopted by more contractors in 2022. Its ability to provide detailed project insights at various stages of the lifecycle makes it a valuable tool for the industry.
Robots in the Labor Force: Robotics technology is becoming increasingly prevalent on construction sites to address labor shortages. Autonomous robots can handle repetitive tasks efficiently, improving workforce utilization and safety. Robotics presents a solution for companies struggling with hiring skilled staff.
