Technology is already essential to almost every aspect of the construction equipment sector, from machine automation to virtual reality. And in today’s world, technology has a more important role than ever before, as we strive to overcome skills shortages, improve productivity and make construction safer and more sustainable.
At the same time, our digital capabilities are advancing so quickly that what seemed impossible a year ago is normal practice today.
In this landscape it can be difficult to know which technologies will bring genuine and lasting benefits to the industry and the people working in it. This award recognises companies and individuals who have succeeded in looking past the hype and made the best use of technology or digital innovation to achieve real change or improvement.
The judges are not necessarily looking for novel technologies; the emphasis is on the use technology for the benefit of the industry.
