When COVID-19 hit, some companies were able to respond quickly and others were caught flat-footed. When paper instantly became a liability and working in person became a problem, the adoption of digital tools was accelerated, and the use of internet of things (IoT) devices to automatically measure density and distance became imperative. In this discussion, we are going to review the top tools that enabled the entire construction industry to undergo a radical digital transformation in record time. We'll also discuss the mindset that enabled some companies to step on the gas while others had to pump on the breaks. We are going to cover technology topics ranging from prefabrication to a paperless jobsite to IoT and worker tracking.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn how the pandemic accelerated digital transformation
  • Analyze why most of us proved that working from home could work
  • Review the top tools that helped companies move to digital quickly
  • Identify the mindset that enabled some companies to do this really well and others to fall flat
