In our last article, we covered the topic of PropTech, part of an ever-growing list of buzzwords. Today we will talk about another word within that list: ConTech. With this article, we will answer the following questions: what is ConTech? and are ConTech and PropTech the same? If you are in the Construction sector, technology will help you to #ONEUPYOURBUSINESS.
ConTech is an acronym for Construction Technology and means the use of Technology to increase efficiency in planning and building, reduce costs, and eliminate risks in the Construction sector.

Some of the technologies most frequently used are: 3D scanning, 3D Modelling, 3D Printing, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Prefabrication, Data Analytics, Intercommunication between construction sites, Smart sensors, etc.
