THE CHALLENGE

Our Client, a major construction firm with a history of successfully completing “mega” infrastructure projects, had recently lost opportunities to work on similar projects to certain groups of competitors, particularly from Asia. They recognised that these competitors had been able to offer lower bids because they had improved the efficiency of their construction practices through the use innovative technology.

 

The Client wanted to achieve the same kinds of improvements in their efficiency, but needed expert advice to identify which specific innovations were worth investing in before starting their R&D work. They asked CamIn to investigate how their competitors were developing and using innovative construction methods and technology, and to evaluate which innovations were most significant in improving their competitors’ efficiency.

5

experts assembled for

the consulting team.

4

areas of innovative construction technology investigated.

9

weeks were spent for project delivery.

THE SOLUTION

CamIn quickly brought in five experts from science and industry to work with our team on the Client's challenge. We worked to identify the most important innovations used by their competitors in infrastructure services, high-performance materials, design and manufacturing processes, state-of-the-art construction machinery, and digital technology.

 

Once identified, our team used their expertise to critically evaluate these technologies and discover the “edge” that each technology provided to the Client’s competitors. We also investigated how their competitors were developing these innovations, studying their internal R&D practices and their partnerships with construction technology companies and research institutes.

THE IMPACT

We delivered our findings and guidance to the Client in a final report and workshop session with our experts. Based on their evaluation of the full landscape of innovative construction technologies, CamIn’s team advised the Client regarding which technologies were the most valuable to pursue for use on their own construction projects. In particular, we identified technologies that incorporated data from digital sources on construction sites into civil engineering or building modelling programs, and modular construction practices, as significant drivers of their competitors’ efficiency. The Client appreciated the detailed guidance that we provided, and our ability to deliver actionable insights in just two months. With this new direction and our advice, our Client was able to jump-start their R&D work implementing these innovative solutions into their own construction practices.
