Engineering, Construction, and Operations
Digital, connected construction
Why digitalise? Think real-time visibility, automatic time tracking, smooth intercompany collaboration, fully connected job sites – and more.
Construction collaboration and BIM
Collaboration and building information modelling (BIM) mitigates risk – from bigger projects to eco concerns to construction complexity.
Supply chain challenges
Connected supply chains and smart prefab construction can solve material shortages and reduce labour costs while improving timelines.
Engineering and construction sustainability
Construction generates 25% to 40% of the world’s carbon emissions. Reduce your footprint by adding sustainability to your selection criteria alongside cost and quality.
New engineering and construction technology
The world wants smart buildings. What will you need in your tool kit? AI, augmented reality, automation, analytics, BIM, and the IIoT.
Construction labour shortage
How are companies meeting labour shortages? By digitalising, automating, and turning smart prefabrication into a differentiator.
