The role of humans in the future of construction
CEOs and high-level executives of established construction companies and start-ups explain what they expect will be the role of humans in the future of construction.
It is expected that automation and robotics replace many of the current jobs. However, there will be new roles for humans in the engineering & construction industry. These new job profiles will include more planning, quality control and monitoring tasks.
Up-skilling of the workforce is required to enable the orchestrating of the robotic symphony. Furthermore it is expected that many jobs will move to pre-fabrication factories.
