The construction industry has been a growing industry for years – structural change, demographic change in an urban, ageing society and the change in lifestyle are providing further impetus. At the same time, however, digital transformation is placing new demands on an industry that has so far been a rather traditional one. Digitalisation leads to innovative solutions requiring a reorientation of the industry, e.g. digital recording of work phases of construction projects or 3D printing, and thus goes far beyond the sole improvement of construction procedures.
From 2020, an improved control of all processes through the implementation of building data modelling will become mandatory for infrastructure projects. This requirement by the public authorities will not only affect the expansion of the transport and fibre-optic network but also maintenance activities. Furthermore, projects like the 5G network or the nationwide implementation of the technical requirements for the emerging electromobility result in new tasks for the construction industry.
Growth opportunities are also created through the industry's growing social responsibility regarding sustainable construction, the realisation of smart cities through intelligent components and lean construction. The organisation and logistics of construction projects and the control of all partners involved to optimise resource efficiency while achieving great results play a key role in the orientation of the construction industry.
For the transition to a successful future facing new circumstances, the German construction industry needs specialists who possess the required new skills.
