How COVID-19 will change the construction industry in 2021: Giatec’s review

Giatec, a global company known for the first wireless concrete testing sensor and artificial intelligence (AI), unveils their predictions for the construction industry in 2021 including a significant increase in the use of labour-saving tools, digital technologies and software, and growth in online learning.

Jobsites are trying to adapt and find solutions to the challenges presented by the pandemic since it began in late 2019. It is predicted that the use of new technologies and construction automation software will increase because it will assist in reducing the amount of close contact between individuals onsite and follow health and safety guidelines in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19. These trends will help offset setbacks resulting from new working conditions and counter construction slowdown. 

“As construction firms take on the challenge of future proofing beyond 2021, leaders have an opportunity to drive an innovation mindset and rethink their technology investment and adoption strategy,” says Allison Scott of Autodesk in their report on construction trends for 2021.

Giatec is riding the wave of online learning in 2021. The company will be hosting their first ever virtual event, The Net Zero Construction Conference, which will bring together top leaders from major organizations like the National Ready-Mix Concrete Association, Lafarge, Skanska, National Research Council of Canada, and more, to discuss the trends and technologies that promote sustainable construction. Multiple webinars will continue to be hosted by Giatec’s concrete experts every month. In addition, they will be launching a brand-new podcast, Construction Revolution, with guests from the top innovators, researchers, and disrupters in the industry. 

It is clear 2021 will transform the industry. In light of these predictions, Giatec aims to help construction businesses strengthen overall and prove their resilience through advanced technologies and online learning opportunities.
