Can you imagine a major construction site that requires no cranes? Or one that requires no people? Or completely eliminates the permitting process? Check out our conversation with Fernanda Leite, Associate Professor at the Cockrell School of Engineering at UT Austin who is helping to lead the Construction Industry Institute’s (CII) Technology Path to the Future. Fernanda explains the process behind a unique collaborative methodology to solve this initiative exists to inspire organizations within the capital projects industry to successfully transform to new technology paradigms. The industry tends to focus most of its innovation attention and budgets on short term or incremental change. By focusing on what will be required to deliver capital projects three decades in the future, this report illustrates the need for radically different technologies.
