In this modern world where technology at its best is creating wonders, it has also helped the Indian built environment bring it equal to international standards.
Facilitating faster and more efficient as compared to the traditional built environment
The growing use of technology facilitates faster and more effective collaboration among everyone. Compared to traditional construction technology, it enables more rapid and more effective collaboration among builders – connecting to architects, owners, and their teams. This digitization leads to increased productivity, profitability, and innovation in potential business. Therefore, with the help of technology, information can be collected and streamlined, helping integrate data into the business system in real-time. Digitization has further provided platforms where gathering information on the job site and sharing it with others, as well as asking questions and receiving responses takes place in real-time. It is not only restricted to sharing of information, but the online and mobile apps are useful for anything from reporting to building information modeling (BIM), bid management software with integrated reaction tracking mobile devices with authentic alarms and notices, online planning rooms, virtual conferencing platforms, and GPS monitoring are all popular examples. These advancements have the potential to improve real-time communication and cooperation among stakeholders while reducing downtime and mistakes.
Supervising the supervisors and increasing work accuracy
Due to digitisation, the Indian built environment has seen a remarkable shift in managing the systems Supervisors can record employee hours on a mobile device and wirelessly transfer this information to the field office. This solution removes the need for timesheet approval documentation and speeds up the procedure. The data is effortlessly linked into the company’s core system, reducing mistakes and inefficiencies associated with paper-based record keeping. Using a mobile software solution to manage employee time may help businesses increase accuracy while lowering processing expenses.
Accessing available information quickly and building modifications
The new trend has also led to the Mobile technologies, such as tablets and smartphones, along with cloud-based data storage and management systems, which aid in improving the efficiency of job site operations. Contractors may access designs, paperwork, contracts, and other crucial information in real-time from the work site, saving wait time and helping them costly avoid mistakes. Another important factor that this intelligent transformation brought is that users may modify the building model in real-time to understand how they affect cost and labor. This enables designers and builders to understand better how different design possibilities impact the aesthetic of the building while also taking budget and schedule constraints. Finally, this technology allows project teams to make better-informed judgments in less time. It also enhances the likelihood that the project will remain within its budget and timetable, driving contractors and project managers to make more rapid and informed decisions. Intelligent modeling allows users to modify the building model in real-time to understand how it affects cost and labour.
This whole new transformation from a traditional built environment to a digital built environment in the Indian world brought a lot of advancement and many new opportunities in the construction world and matched the international construction standards. India has also seen the new education courses and institutions in the strata of the built environment and real estate.
In the future, technology may be used to supplement classroom teaching and learning. In the last two years, technologies such as video-assisted remote learning, immersive learning, AI, VR-based learning, and on-demand learning have advanced substantially. Such advancements are being progressively integrated into the classroom to fulfill tomorrow’s expectations.
