construction innovative technologies

Get to know about the cutting edge technology being implemented in the construction industry recently.

Novel technologies have certainly transformed everything in the construction and fabrication world, but it goes even further: it has also penetrated material processing plants to enhance their production.

Thanks to the revolutionary cutting edge technology in construction we can now witness the many benefits this has brought into today’s world, both to businesses and fabrication processes.

This translates into a greater amount of work done in less time, accuracy in the development of specific designs tailored for clients, material saving, fewer expenses, minimization of the environmental impact, and competitive results in international markets and in the construction and remodeling sector.

At Carolina Custom Homes, we’re always at the forefront when it comes to construction, remodeling, and their safety.


7 main innovative technologies incorporated into construction in 2021


  1. 3D impression: a printer of this kind has revolutionized traditional architectural manual drafting.

Digitalization is clearly in charge now for having the power of printing any machine design in a tridimensional way with sharper accuracy than doing it manually, in addition to being able to provide greater complexity to it. This allows the creation of quick, accurate, and lower-cost designs, guaranteeing cleaner and more ecological and functional works.


  1. Laser scanner: this technology allows you to preview and explore in detail the construction site to evaluate the possibilities for a design, as well as making better use of the resources and space available, among other things.


  1. Robotics: from automated robots that lay bricks in enormous quantities in little time to demolition and cleaning robots, the construction field has experienced a rise in robotics. It is undoubtedly a futuristic methodology that is projected to be a quintessential solution for this sector.

This tool is costly and requires constant maintenance in terms of safety. Data hacking would seriously compromise the construction work.


  1. Drones: These flying devices have become a really useful tool in the construction industry due to their accurate terrain topographic surveys in lesser time, granting safety to the personnel against any failure or anomaly in it.

These mechanisms specifically save construction time, money, and error margins. They also make videos and capture photos of the constructions for the review and supervision of the building process.


  1. Internet of things (loT): this technology connects objects and sensors to establish a powerful synergy and create intelligent works, leading to an enhanced functionality through that connection. Moreover, it is possible to predict failures and anomalies thanks to the data transmitted via the internet which allows early repairing to avoid greater damage in the future.


  1. Use of sensors: the placement of sensors during the development of work is a technology that measures from dust and noise to substances harmful to health, offering, in turn, a safe workplace.


  1. Use of sustainable materials, for example, self-healing concrete: currently there is a smart version of concrete created in order to spread and grow where required, filling cracks in the process. What’s the secret? Self-activating bacteria have been added to the components of the concrete, which produce new limestone and prevent its wear.


New technologies are driving forward the construction industry today more than ever, so it is always important to be up to date with everything new in this sector, and if not, we will always be there to advise you and help you achieve your goals.
