The jobsites of 20 years ago already seem antiquated compared to today’s. On the ground, technologies like handheld mobile apps, real-time data retrieval, and autonomous machines are becoming commonplace in streamlining work from the planning to the building.
On a higher level, trends like renewables, data analytics and new capital approaches make the work of planning, procurement and construction an exercise in leveraging new tech as soon as it hits the market.
When the Government of Hong Kong contracted Black & Veatch to solve the problem of flooding in Happy Valley — the city of 7 million’s dense cultural district — we brought innovative planning and sensor-driven solutions that not only minimized environmental and economic impact but cut construction time by a year.
Yet despite all this technological change, what remains the same is the need to keep workers safe and productive. At Black & Veatch, we are committed to the higher promise of safeguarding health and safety while improving productivity and reducing delays, helping our clients evolve with each new breaking of ground.
