  • 1. WHERE WERE HEADED: CONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGY TRENDS FOR 2015 AND BEYOND
  • 2. LAUREN HASEGAWA Co-Founder, Bridgit Lauren is a Structural Engineering graduate with a background in concrete restoration. As a young engineer, Lauren has always had an interest in how new technologies can improve efficiency and productivity on construction projects. With this passion, she founded Bridgit, a mobile and web communication platform for the construction industry in 2012. Bridgit focuses on developing mobile-first solutions that can help relieve on-site pain points, such as deficiency management.

  • 3. Technology is evolving at an exponential rate
  • 4. It took less than 40 years to go from the first PC to the first iPad
  • 5. and just 4 years to go from the first iPad to Google Glass
  • 6. 3D printing
  • 7. Augmented reality
  • 8. We need to pay attention to emerging trends in technology
  • 9. Construction Technology Trends for 2015 1. Device convergence: Phablets to replace tablets on-site 2. Augmented reality and wearables to make BIM and VDC more accessible 3. Near-field communications (NFC) to gain popularity on-site 4. Truly paperless jobsites
  • 10. 1. DEVICE CONVERGENCE: PHABLETS TO REPLACE TABLETS ON-SITE
  • 11. Phone + Tablet
  • 12. Phablet

  • 15. Tablets on-site for plans
  • 16. You no longer need to choose between a smartphone and a large screen
  • 17. 2. AUGMENTED REALITY AND WEARABLES TO MAKE BIM AND VDC MORE ACCESSIBLE
  • 18. Weve been communicating 3D intentions with 2D tools: Spreadsheets, paper drawings, etc.
  • 19. Augmented reality is helping to improve that
  • 20. iPhone 6
  • 21. and wearables are making it even better
  • 22. 3. NEAR-FIELD COMMUNICATIONS (NFC) TO GAIN POPULARITY ON-SITE
  • 23. NFC is a secure form of data exchange that allows data to be transferred from physical tags to NFC devices
  • 24. The smartphone in your pocket will be an NFC device.
  • 25. 4. TRULY PAPERLESS JOBSITES
  • 26. Paperless = Cloud
  • 27. The key to going truly paperless is complete adoption
  • 28. Its where were headed
  • 29. What seems like a stretch of the imagination today, may well be the reality of tomorrow.
