The rise of technology, particularly mobile is having a huge impact on every industry; a new report from the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) analyses exactly what those changes could look like in construction.

The report, conducted by the MGI as part of an ongoing research program into automation technologies and their impact, with one of the key findings being the potential boost in productivity resulting from automation.

The MGI suggests as many as half of today’s work activities could be fully or partly automated by around 2055, raising productivity growth globally by between 0.8 and 1.4% (dependent on other economic conditions and factors).
