GIRI Research Report: The use of digital technology on site to reduce errors in construction

The construction industry lacks the maturity of other industries when it comes to the implementation of digital solutions on site, hence there is a huge opportunity to drive innovation and efficiency in the sector by speeding up this process.

The Get It Right Initiative commissioned this study to examine the technologies that are available to support error reduction on site, establish how they are currently being used, and identify whether certain types of products are more widely used than others.

Our insights are drawn from two primary sources — an online questionnaire and a series of discussions with professionals working on 11 live construction sites across the UK.

The purpose of the research is to understand how digital tools are viewed by the professionals using them, explore barriers to implementation, the opportunities for wider use of the technology, and gain some understanding of the costs and timescales involved in implementing them.
