Construction 4.0

Digitalisation is considered to be essential for the EU economy to remain competitive in an increasingly globalised market. The construction sector, as one of the most important EU economic sectors, is thus also getting increasingly involved with its own digital transformation – or Construction 4.0 – which has the potential to further improve working conditions on construction sites, attract young people to the sector and make construction projects more predictable.

However, the construction industry is structurally characterised by the presence of many actors, and this fragmentation of roles and tasks naturally makes digitalisation more challenging when compared with other sectors. Especially construction SMEs and craftsmen have limited investments opportunities and often lack digital expertise, which is why we need a gradual digital transformation across the whole value chain that is beneficial for everyone.
