Revamping Digital Tools and Systems

Dec. 9, 2021 – There is an excellent article on Command Alkon’s website, “The Infrastructure Deal Provides Construction Industry Once in A Lifetime Opportunity to Revamp Digital Tools and Systems.” And by construction industry, that includes the aggregates industry. From the article: “There’s been a productivity lag in the construction industry for decades – one that costs the global economy $1.6 trillion annually. Lack of technological advancements, lack of communication, coordination issues, and an inefficient use of time are all issues that serve as the gordian knot in construction productivity. Technology can cut through the complexities. Digitally collaborative technologies and tools that work on cloud-based desktops and mobile platforms provide clear insights into how materials and manpower are moving, placed, and working. The Infrastructure Bill poses a once in a lifetime opportunity to not only upgrade the country’s infrastructure, but also to upgrade the infrastructure – the tools and systems – that we use to build our infrastructure. The old ways of working are no longer aligned with the new rules of success, and to close the gap between trading partners on projects, all industry players need to go digital.” I could not agree more.
