According to some commentators, the construction industry is on the cusp of a new industrial age. The
fourth industrial revolution (or Industry 4.0) will see construction practices and players alike adopting more
advanced technology, bringing the industry in line with some of the more digitally developed industries. This
will revolutionise not only how physical structures are designed and built, but how they are maintained across
their entire lifecycle. In: steel Australia, vol. 32, no. 1, pp. 18-19.
