Construction technology is innovating fast

The latest phase in the Industrial Revolution

The industrialised construction era has begun. New concepts of smart manufacturing and smart cities embrace the latest technological developments which include cyber-physical systems (CPS), the internet of things (IoT),  industrial internet of things (IIoT), cloud computing, cognitive computing and artificial intelligence. 

According to a McKinsey report of June 2020, disruptive change is coming to the current highly fragmented construction industry, and it will affect every segment of the value chain. The construction ecosystem of the future will transform into an industrialised construction process with a more integrated and standardised product-based vs current project-based process.

The Smart Village

The integrator for community living

The smart village is designed around a framework of interconnected and integrated residential, commercial, community and service infrastructures which in turn will create the foundation for a thriving, sustainable, and circular village economy. 

Traditional construction processes don't work any longer

New platform based business models are innovating fast

Definition of a platform business model: a business model that creates value by facilitating exchanges between two or more interdependent groups, usually consumers and producers.
