How many workers does it take to inspect a building for defects?

With the increasing use of emerging technologies like drones, artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices, the answer could soon be close to zero.

The traditionally labour-intensive real estate and built environment sector has been hit particularly hard by the pandemic and the resulting manpower shortage.

But this has also pushed firms to digitalise their operations more aggressively, with major players in both the private and public sectors increasingly adopting tech solutions for building construction and maintenance.

Ms Jane Ong, who leads the digitalisation committee at real estate developer GuocoLand, said the Covid-19 pandemic’s disruption of the built environment sector has heightened the need to digitalise and innovate processes in creating products and services.

She added: “We recognise that, as a developer and building owner, we are the main procurer of products and services and hold a pivotal position in directing the development of the built environment sector.”
