Bristol University Civil Engineer 4th YearStudent
Automation will revolutionise construction from the most basic structural calculations to enormous but repetitive on site tasks. Having worked as a structural design engineer in each of my summer vacations, I understand the need for oversight of computational solutions. Humans are required as an input to the system and as a check against systematic errors. I see huge inefficiencies in this system and with construction as a whole.
With the advent of comprehensive Building Information Management, modular prefabricated construction and accurate drone based Lidar and Infrared scanning techniques, it will become ever more feasible to find technology that can replace humans at each stage of construction.
