January 1st, 2021|Categories: K-Ops|

The construction landscape is changing fast. Companies desperately need to increase their productivity in order to meet the growing demands and deliver projects under increasingly tight deadlines. That said, major productivity gains often involves technological innovation. While this is currently taking place in most industries around the world, the construction industry lags behind.

From collaboration software to drones and BIM, the options are endless! But beyond the sole decision to [...]

On the eve of a second major corporate [...]
