Business as usual” isn’t the way you want to follow. Many people , and companies are still sitting in the COVID 19 hangover phase, companies can’t afford to go back to normal as it is no longer a desired state for the construction industry. Those companies who are planning to go back to normal or even waiting for others to show them the new path are already in serious danger. The only viable option for the construction sector is to approach specific digital tools and standardised processes and this means considering hiring new talent. The AEC Industry has shifted its way of working towards digitisation since the late 1990s.
