Technology came to the rescue of the construction industry

The construction industry, which was shaken from its foundations in the pandemic, found the solid mortar it was looking for in technology. Stating that full-scale digitalization in construction is expected to bring great savings to global costs in 10 years, Çözümevi General Manager Gökhan Arıksoy said, “In order to meet the needs of the rapidly increasing population around the world, the industry needs to build an average of 13 thousand buildings, approximately 90 thousand bridges and 1.1 million km of roads every day. needs. This is only possible with the support of technology.”

It is estimated that the future of the construction industry, which has been shaken by the pandemic, will be bright due to the ever-increasing world population and urbanization rates. Stating that the solution to the narrow profit margin problem that is pushing the industry lies in technology, Çözümevi General Manager Gökhan Arıksoy said, “This giant industry, which represents 13% of the global product, has seen an insufficient yield increase of 1% per year in the last 20 years. Full-scale digitalization in construction is expected to bring huge savings to global costs within 10 years. It is calculated that non-residential constructions will save 0.7 to 1.2 trillion dollars during the design, engineering and construction phases, and 0.3 to 0.5 trillion dollars during the operation phase.”

Construction found the digital future it was looking for thanks to the pandemic

Stating that the construction sector, which is of great importance in terms of society, economy and even the environment with its carbon emissions, has resisted change that will increase quality, safety and productivity until a short time ago, Gökhan Arıksoy said, “After the millennium, at least 20 years behind, the construction sector found the digital future it was looking for thanks to the pandemic . It has been proven that it is no longer possible to avoid next-generation solutions such as automation, robotic processes, advanced analytics. Otherwise, it would not be possible to keep up with the building needs of the world population, which will increase by 2 billion by 2050. Within 30 years, 2 out of 3 (68%) people are expected to live in cities. In order to support this urban population, the industry needs to build an average of 13 thousand buildings, approximately 90 thousand bridges and 1.1 million km of roads every day.”

Making evaluations about the digitalization of the construction industry, Nurol Holding Information Technologies Group President Nesrin Sarı said: “The rapid progress of technology forces companies to reconsider their way of doing business, abandon traditional business models and act rapidly in line with the digitalization trend. The construction sector, which is the most resistant to this change due to the structure of the sector, has to give more importance to information technology investments than before in order to gain an advantage over its competitors by increasing efficiency and producing quality production at the lowest possible cost.”

Noting that Nurol İnşaat is a company that always follows technology closely, Sarı said, “Besides commercial applications since the 1980s, many processes of the construction industry such as proposal preparation, progress payment preparation, unit price analysis, quantity and project budget tracking have been computerized. We are in the position of one of the leading companies in technology investment, which carries the project cost tracking to the central board of directors on a daily basis by communicating with the headquarters after technological developments. Nurol İnşaat, which has accomplished many successful projects in a widespread geography such as Romania, Algeria, Morocco, Georgia, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Iraq, uses the Nurol SAP ERP system in all its ongoing projects outside the UAE, and carries out all construction activities as in the past ERP experience.

By implementing the Business Intelligence and Business Analytics modules in the 3rd Phase of our project, we will be meeting the highest expectations of our Board of Directors from our SAP ERP Transition Project, by ensuring that data can be analyzed and transformed into efficient decisions. We are aware of the fact that following the technology closely plays an important role in the prestigious and successful position of Nurol İnşaat, which has been proudly included in the “ENR – The World’s Largest Contractors List” for the last 16 years.”
