Digitizing building design turned out to be the easy part. Digitizing construction is more challenging. Dr. Lucas Winter and the team at CONTAKT are repurposing approaches from discreet manufacturing to boost productivity on the construction site. Their system involves attaching IoT sensors on key construction components like formwork, then collecting and interrogating sensor data about position, movement, and temperature to gain insight into progress. And when you can measure, you can improve.
