Internet of Things set to transform the construction industry

The Internet of Things (IoT) is proving hugely beneficial to the construction industry, allowing different assets and people to be monitored and accounted for across a traditionally fragmented industry. As a result, companies that invest in IoT now promise to make long-term gains in the industry. According to GlobalData forecasts, spending on IoT in construction will reach $9.6bn by 2025. For an industry that has large sites to manage, strict project timelines, hazardous working conditions, and tight profit margins, IoT can create a manageable view of construction sites for project managers, streamline operations, and protect workers. In addition, it allows real-time data streams of assets, automates time-consuming tasks, and ensures employee safety and productivity. IoT integration with equipment manufacturing also has rich advantages for asset monitoring sensors. This, combined with artificial intelligence (AI) can help forecast materials and workers needed during the procurement stage and assist in forecast financing.

  • Market size and growth forecasts
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Leading IoT adopters in construction

The DSA offers design and construction oversight for state facilities and schools so that all structural, accessibility, fire and life safety codes are adhered according to the relevant standards.

This $55m project is the college’s first new construction in ten years.

Once complete, the new Instructional Building at Fullerton College will accommodate the Humanities division, which consists of the English, English as a Second Language, foreign languages, besides speech and communication departments.

The Humanities Division currently occupies 36 classrooms, most of which are in temporary facilities spread across the campus.

By 2030, this division will require an estimated 12 more lecture halls.

The new Instructional Building will offer these lecture facilities, tutoring rooms and faculty office spaces.

The Instructional Building site is situated close to contributor buildings on the Fullerton College campus.

RNT Architects principal Ralph Roesling said: “The new Instructional Building will meet the fine balance of being differentiated from the adjacent historic district contributors, but also compatible with the massing, size, scale, and architectural features of those buildings.

“With a gabled roof, clay Mission tiles, prominent arches, and ornate iron work, the building will complement the style of its neighbouring historic buildings.”

The building’s cooling will come from the campus central plant located 550ft north-northwest of the project site.

Furthermore, an expansion of the current existing chilled water plant will be an integral part of the new development.

These projects are expected to break ground in early 2020.

BNBuilders principal Jamie Awford said: “We’ve enjoyed a truly collaborative process working closely with Fullerton College to deliver this $55m project using progressive design-build.

“This delivery method has enabled the entire team to make informed decisions with confidence, maintaining the budget and schedule at all times.

“The new Instructional Building integrates within the existing historic campus with several sustainable features and will serve the students and staff for decades, as well as the new efficient central plant that will serve the entire campus’ current and future needs.”
