Construction & Smart City ApplicationDigitalization of Greystage with Sensor Technology, Material flow and Workforce Optimization
The construction industry is one of the oldest of verticals of mankind, with over $12 trillion dollars market size and currently undergoing a heavy transition into a sustainable future.
Non-digital processes: For hundreds of years the core processes of construction have been driven by the experience of design architects, engineers and builders that rely heavily on pen and paper processes.
Emissions: Construction sector accounts for 39% of CO2 emissions in 2018. Between 2010 and 2020 the flooring area increased by 25% in size with an approximate population increase of around 10% in the same period.
Soaring Prices: Cost for construction materials hit all-time highs level (notably concrete, brick, rebar and timber) and are not expected to slow cost increases before late 2022. Contractors' margins are diminishing.
Earth quakes and collapsing structures: 750,000 deaths by earthquakes globally between 1998-2017 with 125 million people being injured, made homeless etc. ~30,000 deaths each year are caused by collapsing buildings (in average).
