Todd Takes

1.      Start sharing your construction story and telling others inside and outside the industry all the amazing things that are happening day in and day out in this industry.

2.      Robotics offer an interesting bridge between the digital and the physical worlds inherent with construction. As robotics and wearables become ever more prevalent on the jobsite, they serve a valuable job of data collecting.

3.      Loved the concept of the “co-bots” that Aarni talked about. That is exactly right. We should think of robots as providing construction workers with superpowers. So embrace your inner Iron Man.
