Most owners adapting digital workflows on projects

Driving greater use of digital tools across the industry.

Owners are more deeply engaged with digital workflows than other project team members, according to a new report released by Trimble and Dodge Data & Analytics.
 
“Connected Construction: The Owner’s Perspective,” says that 85% of owners surveyed are already implementing digital transformation. This finding is significant because owners are highly influential in the design and construction industry and are often essential to driving change. It suggests that owners’ influence will boost the use of these tools.
 
Recognizing the value of connecting internal workflows with external workflows, 69% of owners frequently include contractual requirements for contractors to use digital documentation and practices. In addition, 60% of owners report having digital workflows for at least half of their project data between internal departments, learning from their experience with digitizing internal workflows to help them digitize external ones.
 
There is room for improvement on that point, though, as only 28% report a similar level of digital data exchange with external companies. Owners using digital workflows are far more likely to be able to trace the root causes of delays and errors on their projects back to specific activities than those that do not use them, the study found.
