Lastly, and most importantly, technology advancements will play a major role in improving construction in 2018. Virtual reality and augmented reality use will allow people to tour sites without doing so in person, and this will change the way construction companies visualize projects before they are built. Drone usage will also become a mainstay for surveying work sites.
