Artificial intelligence in civil construction: how to optimize processes with this solution

For some years now, artificial intelligence has been part of our lives, helping to optimize different processes and making our daily lives easier. Yeah, they are increasingly present in our routine, often going unnoticed, so it’s very common not to notice where they are being applied. 

As in construction, did you know that AIs are widely used on construction sites? 

These innovations bring more agility and development to the construction of buildings and houses. But, to understand how all this works and how artificial intelligence in civil construction is applied, we made this post describing a little more about the joint work of this construction and technology. 

Shall we know more? Keep reading! 

How does artificial intelligence work in civil construction? 

First, it is interesting to understand how artificial intelligence works outside the context of the construction industry. Tools that work with AI can be applied in situations such as, for example, chatbots, which offer a better experience in customer service. In this way, offering an exclusive and fast service. 

However, on construction sites, these innovations help with construction planning and control. Furthermore, with the coming together of technology and artificial intelligence, we are going to see several innovations in this field in the coming years. With more sustainable solutions for buildings and more affordable developments. 

What are the benefits of artificial intelligence on the construction site? 

So, you already know that artificial intelligence can bring several advantages to different sectors of the market, but how does it contribute to the civil construction sector? 

First, these tools use data to build their learning, creating algorithms that facilitate the projection and forecast of enterprises. As in any other area, civil construction also generates data, which can be analyzed and transformed into rich information for the learning of these machines. With this information in hand, the software can work in several areas of construction, from planning to delivery of the work. 

In addition, the use of machines provided with this type of technology can also bring many benefits to civil construction. Such as the use of demolition robots and soil drilling. They bring more agility and security to projects. 

In the future, we will also see monitoring cameras that follow the progress of work and supervise the movement of work. They can also be used as a form of employee identification, making the environment safer. Speaking of safety, artificial intelligence can also monitor the safety of the construction site, preventing accidents and regulating the use of safety equipment. 

What are the main applications of artificial intelligence in civil construction? 

Now, let’s highlight some of the main uses of artificial intelligence in civil construction and what are its benefits for each area: 

Forecast of resistance and technical efficiency of cement 

One of the areas that is benefiting from the use of artificial intelligence is cement. That’s because it can test the cement, bringing results closer to real numbers. Thus, ensuring an important positive point for the segment: safety. 

By analyzing numbers and creating patterns, intelligence is able to predict the strength of concrete. In addition, this analysis is carried out in a very few days (3 days on average), offering more flexibility for adapting and readjusting the concrete if the material’s resistance proves to be lower than necessary. 

That is, it is possible to prevent accidents and waste of materials during the work! 

Risk management at the construction site 

One of the major factors that cause concern for construction managers is safety. The risk factors are enormous within a construction site, and many things can happen. However, many of them can be avoided, if any prediction occurs. 

Therefore, artificial intelligence can help a lot when it comes to forecasting. Since it manages to calculate and, therefore, predict the main risks or problems that will appear along the way. Therefore, it can help prevent more common accidents. 

Behavior and communication with customers 

As we have already mentioned, artificial intelligence can be used in several areas of an enterprise. Even in customer service and communication. If you want to provide a good experience for your website users, you need to be able to respond to them at any time of the day. 

However, you don’t need someone working 24/7 to serve your customers. Chatbots can optimize this service, solving small problems or indicating opening hours for customers to contact later. 

In addition, it is also possible to carry out field surveys to find out how satisfied your customers are with your projects and services. Thus ensuring customer satisfaction. 

Planning and conducting the work 

Finally, when planning work, it is also possible to use artificial intelligence to perform data analysis to carry out projections. 

In addition, by analyzing other previous works, it is possible to bring results and present insights so that engineers and construction workers can solve the problems foreseen in advance. That is, artificial intelligence in construction streamlines the decision-making process, reducing risks, waste, and possible errors.
