How can construction crack
Construction has bounced back quicker than expected from the Covid-19 pandemic and the industry is set to reach 2019 levels of output in 2022. However, the sector still faces a significant skills challenge and according to the Construction Industry Training Board by 2025, the industry will need to recruit an additional 217,000 new workers just to meet demand.The government’s Build Back Better drive is placing increasing pressure on the industry to deliver and the sector also needs to invest in the skills that will drive change and meet new and growing needs such as net zero emissions and building safety. That means an increasing focus on specific skills and occupations such as leadership and management, digital skills and skills related to energy efficiency.

Will AI change the face of construction?

September 16, 2022 | 6:00 AM ET

Artificial intelligence (AI) is on the rise in construction as companies look to streamline delivery in order to meet ever-growing demand. The rise of AI and machine learning technologies have the potential to change the face of construction and although the fear of the robots taking over is inevitable, there are positive aspects. AI can be used to explore the possibilities of each aspect of a construction project and find the best solution much quicker than a human mind can. Not only does this speed up processes, it also reduces the risk of human error which can improve safety on sites. So, how far can AI go in the construction and infrastructure sector and will it change the industry as we know it? Sign up for this webinar and find out.
