It seems like every day we see some new tool or software solution that is the ‘next big thing’ in construction. It’s true that there are a lot of new advances that can go a long way to saving us from injuries and unnecessary mistakes in the construction industry, but it’s important that we think new tech through just like any other business decision. This week, we’re talking with Trevor Lunde, who sees a lot of new technology move through the vetting system at GLY, and we’re talking about how to get to the bottom of whether a new technology tool is actually going to bring value to the jobsite (especially by *reducing steps* rather than adding them. We’re also talking about the importance of thinking about the people who will be using the technology, and how we can actually use it to collaborate better, rather than drifting further apart.
We talk about:
• The technology of learning to livestream (which led Mary to miss the first 11 minutes of Trevor’s audio in the original livestream video – Thanks to longtime Arcade friend Jim Schmidt for letting us know!)
• The process for vetting new technology
• Onboarding project partners who haven’t used your tech before
• The future of Augmented Reality in construction
• Geolocation and how it might be the most useful near future technology
• The future of the foreman position
• Jetpacks in construction!
