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

The new technology, called Rehearsive, was launched following a three-month beta period with 250 volunteers from the UK infrastructure sector.

Rehearsive is designed to help infrastructure designers and operators to rehearse and assess multiple construction scenarios in VR and desktop, and then optimise building designs.

It also expedites design reviews and facilitates stakeholder understanding.

Mott MacDonald immersive technologies head Andrew Zhao said: “Rehearsive allows users to make the most of opportunities created through remote working. With so many people currently working remotely, it is set to prove its worth even more by boosting productivity as the industry recovers.

“Those who have recognised the efficiency benefits gained by using this technology will be at an advantage. Our successful beta period allowed us to take the positive feedback from testers and use it to drive the product to be even more usable and intuitive, developing a better market fit.”

The new solution can be integrated with existing 3D workflows and building information modelling (BIM) models and allows the staff to communicate using voice chat.

In addition, Rehearsive enables the operator to evaluate the impact of design decisions on on-site operations and accordingly initiate steps to mitigate any risks.

According to the company, the use of the solution can help in saving up to 15% on capital delivery budget.

Rehearsive is hosted on Moata, Mott MacDonald’s digital twin platform. Moata is an open platform that leverages data to address infrastructure issues across the asset life cycle.
