Today, new technology has transformed how you build. You’re talking more and more about “BIM” in relation to your current and future projects, but what exactly does it mean? Here are the essentials you should know to take advantage of these benefits for your projects.
In the age of “Internet of everything”, devices communicate, collect data, and offer new services. For the construction sector, this provides a phenomenal opportunity to make lasting changes to work methods and procedures.
