Robots and cobots, drones, autonomous and digital technology, and artificial augmented reality tools are speeding up project bidding for Kentucky’s construction project managers and contractors.
COVID-19 pandemic impacts have helped push adoption of new tools and processes, but the value proposition of more efficient new technology is a key factor as well.
“In the long run we have increased production per man hour,” said Paul Hemmer Jr., CEO of Paul Hemmer Company, a third-generation construction operation based in Fort. Mitchell, KY. “The cost of the equipment is high, but it is offset by savings. It’s an exciting time to be a builder.”
