Construction is not standing still. As the post-pandemic building market ramps up, the industry’s rapid embrace of new tools such as cloud-based software, job site sensors and building information modelling (BIM) have already begun moving the goalposts on expectations during design and construction.

To remain on the cutting edge, Canada’s leading contractors are making the technology choices today that will dictate how the industry tackles projects throughout the 2020s and beyond.

On-Site and representatives from Bockstael Construction, EllisDon and Turner Construction covered the progress contractors have already made, areas they’re targeting next, challenges still to be overcome, the potential role of artificial intelligence, and more in a hour-long panel discussion.

Our panellists:

  • Dan Bockstael, Vice-President of Pre-Construction at Bockstael Construction
  • Hammad Chaudhry, Director of Virtual Design & Construction (VDC)
  • Libby Rowe, Manager of Business Development and Project Development for Turner Construction
