IoT (Internet of Things) is in the Building and Architecture industry

The construction industry has been under a great deal of evolutionary pressure in recent years. An industry strongly rooted in traditional practices that are slow to change, it’s often been seen as stagnant, or at least sluggishly progressing. Technologies seemingly easily adapted and implemented in Big Tech software platforms, solutions, applications, etc. are hitting the scene at a breakneck pace. The tech landscape is so fast paced that keeping up with the rate at which technologies become obsolete renders it truly difficult to shift an entire industry’s technological foundation.


Change isn’t as slow as people think and construction is finding collaborative means to combine technologies and human beings in moving forward. The two, working as allies, are seeing technological additions that are making a dangerous, taxing industry safer, faster, smarter, and more cost effective. Of course, while the industry is evolving, so are the projects. Naturally, change begets change and seeing we’re approaching the future of construction and building, it’s important to break down some of the complexities that may be unfamiliar.


We’re here to touch on the Internet of Things (IoT) and how the integration of technologies in the industry are beginning to shape change in construction. Of course, it’s necessary to break down complexities into simplicities as best as possible. It boils down to the collection of data and how that data is used to make the construction process more streamlined. Technologies becoming smarter through distributed data systems that learn from each other. What does this have to do with construction? A whole lot more than you might think.
