Over the last few months, we have seen a great many books by Akhilesh Srivastava, and each one of the books is an eyeopener in its way and frankly speaking, they all are very invigorating in many aspects.
As the world recovers from the pandemic, many new technologies have to the fore, which are efficient and have a multitude of usability.
In his sensational book “Construction Industry 2.0”, Akhilesh Srivastava talks about defining new ways of doing business in the Construction projects industry. The new book, “Construction Industry 2.0” unlocks the values that today's engineering and construction industry simply cannot access or have missed over the period.
While Akhilesh Srivastava states that the systems and work processes that manage Construction projects have evolved steadily in recent decades, there are still some major sets of activities underlying the Construction Industry which have been getting neglected and this has resulted in burdensome financial waste – preventing real progress. The narration of all these activities is very well summarized in "Construction Industry 2.0" and thousands are gaining from this disclosure of such impactful activities. As we adjust to and recover from the current global challenges, preservation of the Construction Industry is critical. From Dynamic Risk Modelling, Logistics to Supply Chain, and business capital to investors, the book takes a 360-degree approach for easy understanding. It is truly an eye-opener and only once we have read, we can realize what we have been ignoring.
Ushering New Technology With “Construction Industry 2.0”.
Very rightly Akhilesh Srivastava states that "to cope with further changes in future, the construction industry must keep abreast of the trends and pursue self-evolvement. We should see Technology as an irreplaceable partner and not as a replacement.
By incorporating new levels of efficiency through the use of AI and ML, when it comes to data processing, newer technologies can complement and enhance many job opportunities for today's workforce. The use of AI can enhance and help businesses to become more productive—allowing employees more time to expand on their skill sets. For the construction industry specifically, AI presents an opportunity to optimize processes and improve results.
Akhilesh Srivastava, IT Advisor to Government of Uttrakhand, Ex-Chief General Manager (Highway Operations & IT), NHAI has gone above and beyond in explaining and doing step-by-step analysis of every process, in his “Construction Industry 2.0” book. I consider this book to be an asset and a great instrument to make Construction Industry reach a level, that it has never reached.
