The disruption era is driven by the development of the digital world, the construction sector is one sector that will definitely be affected by digital transformation. However, digital adoption in the construction sector is much slower than that of other sectors.

"The efficiency of cost and productivity, quality improvement and accuracy of time always be a challenge from year to year in the field of construction," he said.
