How Robots Will Change the Construction Industry

robots

It has been projected that by 2034/35, 20 per cent of Australians will be over the age of 65, this presents a challenge to industries like construction which are labour intensive and often high risk.

The aging workforce means construction tasks need to be less physically demanding, which is where technology steps in.

The use of new technology and automation of the construction process is expected to transform the industry to a more knowledge intensive one.

Job roles and titles are likely to change drastically.

Some of the construction jobs of the future could be

  • building assembly technician
  • virtual/augmented reality trainers
  • building drone operators
  • robot resource manager
