What are the challenges changing the Construction Products & Services landscape?

Share knowledge in the early stages of design and engineering, contributing to streamlined construction value chain processes.

CHALLENGE

Product manufacturers

Improve Construction value chain

Productization positions Building Product Manufacturers (BPM) on the upstream players as virtual makers. In addition, by leveraging the cloud platform, BPM can share knowledge in the early stages of design and engineering, contributing to streamlined construction value chain processes.

 

Repurpose, reuse & recycle

The need for sustainability, resilience and a circular economy has led to a dramatic increase in policies, regulations and new standards. Building product manufacturers need to contribute to sustainability by reducing resources, reusing and repurposing materials, and considering recyclability at end-of-life.

 

Upgrade for facility performance

Owners & operators want to improve the performance of their facilities. Building product manufacturers can improve long-term maintenance performance and build business relationships with owners and operators by developing upgradeable modular systems.

CHALLENGE

Contractors

A changing value chain

Balancing delivery and personalized production in highly fragmented markets is inherently complex. Responding to these demands requires transformation across the construction industry.  For example, General Contractors (GCs) will serve as prime integrators of multi-trade modules, specialty contractors will morph into virtual makers and micro-factories will become more prevalent.

 

Skill scarcity

Specialized skills such as electrical plumbing experts are hard to find. As the availability of skilled workers continues to decline, it is necessary to accumulate and translate these skills into digitized knowledge. With GCs and specialized contractors digitizing knowledge and collaborating in virtual environments, trade-based skills can be designed into modularized systems.

 

Sustainability compliance

The need for sustainability, resilience and a circular economy has led to a dramatic increase in policies, regulations and new standards.  General and specialized contractors must overcome these new challenges while responding to time pressure, skilled labor decrease, safety management, and profitability improvements.
