The “smart building” movement in construction – aided by technological advances that increase building efficiencies and wearable devices that improve safety – is completely altering all levels of the industry. While advances in safety measures are helping companies better manage risk, much remains to be seen in the coming years.
In How Smart Building is Changing Construction, leading industry trade publication Insurance Journal discusses these issues today as well as opportunities to improve safety in the future. The author taps Lovitt & Touché’s Dennis Tsonis, who leads the company’s construction practice, for his expertise. Dennis sheds light on smart phones, auto insurance and distracted driving.
