Artificial Intelligence (AI) influences nearly every business, including the construction industry from design and planning to operations and workplace safety.
AI is already proving its relevance in this industry by automating and streamlining crucial procedures, reducing significant losses from reworks and casualties on the job while accelerating efficiency to project completion.
Here’s how Artificial Intelligence has been helping the construction industry:
Improve Worksite Safety
An algorithm was developed that examines images from worksites, looks for safety hazards, and compares them with previously recorded accidents. With the help of AI, businesses can now determine how risky a project is so that safety precautions and adjustments may be performed, ultimately improving worksite safety and monitoring for safety hazards.
Make Planning Easier
The reinforcement learning algorithm found in AI gives us the ability to log errors and gain knowledge from them. It does this by analyzing data from past projects and comparing them to your current project. This enables users to identify and decide on the best way to finish the project faster, saving both time and money.
Enhance The Quality of Design
Building Information Modeling (BIM) has assisted the construction industry in planning, designing, and managing projects using 3D models. It displays how the project will appear when completed. We can now use AI to analyze these models and environmental data, such as energy efficiency, lighting and thermal comfort, as well as air quality, to provide design solutions that adhere to sustainability targets.
Assist in Risk Management
Through the help of AI and data gathered from drone footage, performing quality control will be a breeze for the construction industry. Structures can be examined for points that may cause unexpected future hazards, alerting you to issues that need to be addressed as soon as possible. In return, this saves you time, workforce, and unnecessary expenses.
Even when well-planned and executed by a skilled team, many big projects end up going over budget. Through AI, data collected previously can be compared to your current ones to ensure that your project is on the right track. It can predict expense increases, time overruns, and the workforce needed. This allows project stakeholders to foresee the project’s future, saving time, money, and resources.
As you can see, technology has already had a massive impact on the construction industry, and we expect that influence only to grow as time progresses. Education about these technologies and how they can be applied to improve operations will lead to more efficient projects, better designs, and ultimately a safer work environment for everyone involved.
As the first Philippine project management firm to implement the AI-powered OpenSpace, JCVA continues to provide gold-standard bespoke solutions to your construction projects. At JCVA, we firmly believe that AI is the wave of the future, and like for other sectors, it will continue to help define what’s next for project and construction management in the country.
