Project Controls – Is Covid19 actually the antidote?
‘Never let a good crisis go to waste’ Sir Winston Churchill
Bleak though times are in construction, with the coronavirus fundamentally changing our operating practices and the threat of outbreaks and HSE closure on every project risk register, there remains one aspect of the crisis for which we can be grateful.
The adoption of technology to support remote working, to better collaborate, to go digital together has arguably accelerated more than two years in just two months!
Traditional tech adoption curves have been redrawn with our whole industry, facing insecurity, suddenly acknowledging that they can now access that information remotely and join that Teams meeting to remain effective and productive. Despite pockets of typically youthful enthusiasm among our contractors for this ‘new way of working’, adoption has been slow. We needed a diktat; we needed an event.
