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.

  • IoT value chain
  • Market size and growth forecasts
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Leading IoT adopters in construction
  • Specialist IoT vendors in construction

Construction of the sports facility was completed in 30 months.

Spread across two million square feet, the centre comprises five structures.  The 18,000-seat arena of Chase Center will serve as the home court for the Golden State Warriors basketball team. It will also be the hub for 200 events each year.

The centre also houses two 11-storey buildings on 11 acres of land.

It features a glass-enclosed gatehouse, 20 retail shops and 925 underground parking spaces.

The venue will also accommodate theatre performances from next year. The facility also has club suites, lounges and concourse areas that have food and beverage options.

Mortenson | Clark project director Jim McLamb said, “We had an exceptional pool of talented and determined project partners, all rowing in the same direction and working toward the same goal. At the end of the day, that translated into a high-quality end-product delivered on time, and in the safest manner possible.”

As the general contractor, Mortenson | Clark led a team of 260 firms that included engineers, trade contractors, sub-consultants and vendors.

The team worked with the Warriors Organisation, the owners representative firm CAA ICON, in addition to the design team comprising architects MANICA, Kendall Heaton Associates, and Gensler.

Mortenson | Clark started the planning of the structure five years ago and used 4D modelling to ensure that the work was completed on time.

It claims to have used a new construction approach wherein the arena was unravelled from other structures on site and then construction around its four structural concrete cores was accordingly sequenced.

According to this plan, each quadrant of the arena had its own schedule for concrete, steel, and enclosure works.

The first event at the new facility will be held on 6 September.
