OGCA, SMARTBUILD survey seeks feedback on construction technology use, hesitancy

TORONTO — A new survey will focus on better understanding the use of construction technology (CONTECH) and aims to get feedback from owners, general contractors, subcontractors and consultants to make construction easier, more productive and collaborative.

The construction industry as a whole is seen as substantially behind other sectors with respect to technology, states a release.

The State of Construction Technology survey, launched by the Ontario General Contractors Association (OGCA), in collaboration with SMARTBUILD Construction Solutions, is the first systematic attempt to identify and catalogue the different digital technologies and their application across the supply chain.

The survey is part of the mandate of the OGCA Innovation Committee and results will be published and shared with the industry “to assist more universal CONTECH adoption across the construction industry.”

“We want to know how, and most importantly why, some of the industry has been hesitant to use technology,” said Giovanni Cautillo, president of the OGCA, in a statement. “General contractors are well suited to invest in CONTECH due to the collaborative nature of our work. This survey will help us better understand the barriers facing technology adoption across the industry.”
