Innovative solutions in construction industry. Review of 2016–2018 events and trends

    Oleg Kapliński Affiliation

Abstract

The paper presents an overview of innovative solutions in Construction Industry (CI) between 2016 and 2018. Trends in events within CI were compiled mainly on the basis of reports, to a large extent originating from the US market.Directions and conditions of development of CI (in terms of design, technology and socio-economic sense) are considered. The importance of issues related to digitization, integrated activities (from integrated management to the integrated BIM), and partly augmented reality were highlighted. An attempt to synthesize new instruments in Construction Management has been presented.
