CW In Focus | The world's top 10 construction technologies of 2019

Bored of your job? Watch Construction Week's video bulletin to spice up your work hours with these building technologies

From Bim to artificial intelligence and 3D printing to machine learning, construction tech tools are set to impact the global industry in 2019, and the Middle East's top construction contractors and consultants will not be left behind.

The past two decades have seen an explosion in all manner of technologies, with the construction sector set to reap their benefits.

An industry that has traditionally lagged behind, the construction sector has, over the last few years, appeared more responsive to the new tools and techniques that global organisations can share with builders.

This episode of Construction Week In Focus, presented by senior reporter, Jack Ball, sheds light on the world’s top 10 construction technologies in 2019, their real-world applications, and why they are important in today’s modern building sector.
