Increasing Productivity In The Construction Industry By Shifting To Digital

The construction sector can improve its productivity by making a shift to higher use of digital technologies. In the construction sector many mistakes happen and they lead to cost overruns and mistakes which are extremely expensive for the clients and companies alike. By adopting more digital communications and technologies the construction industry could greatly improve its productivity.
