Some key insights from the report that we found interesting, as WECA continuously evaluates ways to provide additional support to our members on advanced construction technology usage, training, and implementation:

The majority of construction firms surveyed are actively looking for new technologies and/or reviewing the effectiveness and efficiency of their existing technology stack.
The majority of specialty contractors are well on their way or already consider themselves a digital-first business.
Ranking alongside construction management platforms, respondents said clean technologies (involving green, sustainable or innovative materials) and BI platforms will be among the top technologies that drive change in the construction industry over the next three years.

A growing number of firms also have on their horizons planned adoption of Extended Reality (XR) technologies (typically augmented reality (AR) and/or virtual reality (VR); artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), and next-gen BIM.
