With the modern construction site generating vast amounts of data from monitoring devices, the challenge for the industry is deriving actionable insights from it. However, data is often held in disparate systems leading to poor collaboration and worsening project productivity. If they are to succeed in such a competitive market, companies must get the most out of the latest technological innovations and software to maximise their efficiency.

The two main benefits of cloud adoption for construction companies are ubiquitous access to data and the facilitation of several other technologies that will be crucial for the industry in the coming years.

Leading construction companies in Cloud computing

Cloud enables project stakeholders to access real-time project information, perform data entries from any device, and update building information models from anywhere, at any time. The high computing power supports the adoption of other technologies such as data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) that facilitate greater efficiency in using resources and access to powerful software that improve project collaboration and execution.

Leading cloud adopters in construction are Larsen & Toubro, Vinci, Balfour Beatty, John Holland, Skanska, Caterpillar, Arcadis, Komatsu, Hitachi, and Laing O’Rouke.
