The 2019 Story: Technology Meets Construction

In the not-so-distant past, whenever you walked onto a construction site, you would be greeted by heavy machinery, diesel trucks doing the rounds, neon-vested and hard-hatted investors and engineers, and a constant buzzing of orders being shouted out and vehicles moving about.

The one thing that drove all those orders used to be massive maps and blueprints that littered any flat surface. However, when you go to construction sites today, those rolls of oversized maps and charts are no longer there.
