Practical Applications of IoT in the Construction Industry


Innovation has great impact on business growth, productivity as well as competitiveness. To keep progressing in the construction industry, innovations in administration, connectivity and collaboration of every single item of construction process associated resource is essential.

Lately, there has been a huge hype about the Internet of Things (IoT) that benefits from interaction through networking with the right people, in the environment that you are operating in. You need to implement IoT solutions in your construction business if there is a need for improving its innovation applications.
Here are 4 ways IoT can help the construction industry innovate and expand:

  1. Corrective to preventive maintenanceWithin the construction industry, one of the largest operating costs is equipment repairs. However, with the advancements made in the fields of embedded software, sensors, connectivity tools, and machinery associated with IoT offers preventive maintenance. Rather than corrective maintenance, preventive maintenance, approaching enables any need for a fix, before it becomes a costly overhaul while weathering the economic renewal.
  2. Reduce administrative expedienceIoT offers real time information to make precision forecasts, data-driven decisions and to automate tasks that would otherwise have manual dependency. With the integration of IoT, paper work, lost or late forms, low accuracy and unwanted internal processing time become non-existent. This will put an end to paper processing, in turn saving your business on printing and helping mother Earth stay green.
  3. Real time monitoringFrom site monitoring to surveys, sensor data can be used to enhance key stages of a construction project, to avoid project delays, and by delivering the catalyst or leaner ways of working. Any downtime takes place from a low supply of stock or performance failure by staff can be costly for construction companies. ioT solutions can alert the site supervisor when resources are malfunctioning or running out and workers need assistance.
  4. Precise managementIoT offers insights into construction assets and with preventive maintenance avoid downtime. IoT offers the possibility of advanced tagging and tracking of materials or trucks associated with your construction industry. This technology can significantly reduce the multiplied costs of lost or misdirected resources.

Connecting all of your resources within your construction business is vital, as your devices need to be in contact and interact flawlessly with other systems, such as inventory management software, within your infrastructure. In short, a higher velocity of the continuous improvement cycle is possible through IoT in the construction industry and we’re not far off from this.
