The construction sector has historically resisted technological changes, adopting new technologies at a slower pace compared to other sectors. While manufacturing has seen an annual growth rate of 4.2% in digitizing processes over the last decade, the construction sector has only grown by 2%. However, the trend is changing, with more and more companies recognizing the importance of digitization in their processes.


The need to adopt new technologies

Recently, 84% of construction companies indicated their intention to adopt new technologies in the next year, primarily driven by safety and productivity reasons. Over 40% of these companies believe that their current level of technological development is insufficient. This gap represents an opportunity to improve efficiency and competitiveness in the sector.


Main challenges in technology adoption

Although there is a growing willingness to adopt new technologies, companies face several challenges that slow down this process. Among the main concerns are:

  • Costs: The initial investment in new technologies.
  • Training: The need to train the workforce to use new tools.
  • Responsibility: Issues of responsibility associated with the use of new technologies.
  • Security: Ensuring the security of construction sites and generated data.


Strategies for intelligent adoption

The question is: should we quickly adopt innovations, investing time and money and assuming potential risks? Or wait for other companies to move forward first, risking falling behind the competition?

The best approach is an intelligent adoption of technologies. Here are some recommended strategies:

  • Benefit and risk analysis: Evaluate the potential benefits and risks of each technology before adoption.
  • Choosing reliable partners: Select technology vendors that offer support and guarantees.
  • Continuous training: Invest in ongoing employee training to ensure adaptation to new tools.
  • Gradual implementation: Adopt a phased approach to implementing new technologies, starting with projects in one area and expanding to other activities.

To ensure success in adopting new technologies, it is crucial to address the main obstacles and choose technological partners that offer adequate support. With a smart adoption strategy, construction companies can maximize results and minimize risks.

At Tecmic, we are committed to helping construction companies implement the necessary technological changes. We offer innovative solutions that improve productivity and safety, ensuring that companies remain competitive in a rapidly evolving market.
