Advantage of digitalization in precast industry

We are living in an era where the “brick and mortar” industry is entering into the digital age. Digitalization is not just accelerating the construction industry, but it is also helping cope with factors that are driving change in the construction industry, such as:

  • Evolving client expectations

  • Large scale infrastructure projects

  • New technological advancements

  • New generation of professionals

  • Working on multiple geographical locations

  • Supportive legal framework

  • Booming startup environment

If we talk about the precast industry, digitalization is playing a significant role in integrating design and production in precast factories. From the flow of information to the speed of reaction, digitalization plays a role everywhere. It is not only making processes easier, but is also ensuring better control and integration; thereby resulting in better efficiency and cost savings.

At StruEngineers, our team of experts is serving clients in 30 countries across the globe, with our in-house software “IMPACT”, built by our Sweden-based holding company StruSoft AB. We are happy to share that, StruSoft and StruEngineers have played a key role in the digitalization of the construction industry over the last 35 years, by offering industry-leading software for Design, 3D BIM Modelling, and Production Management.
