How engineering & construction firms can harness the true potential of technology, with the added perspective of a technology lens
As construction projects become bolder, they also become more complex – and with complexity comes risk. Technology plays a critical role in the increasingly risky world, but when it comes to adopting technologies, conservatism within the industry remains, with most firms content to follow rather than lead. Many senior executives are worried about their organisations’ ability to integrate disparate technologies, along with the costs and subsequent impact on the bottom line.
In the 2016 KPMG Global Construction Survey, we look at how engineering and construction firms can harness the true potential of technology, with the added perspective of a technology lens. For the very first time, we have jointly surveyed both project owners and engineering and construction companies who give their views on the benefits – and the limitations – of technology to enhance project performance.
