Over the past week, there’s been significant exchange of machines between hands. SANY signed a USD 86 billion contract with Kuwait involving 600 machines, to support Kuwait’s national infrastructure projects. Rising machinery demand has also boosted the confidence of machinery manufacturers such as Hitachi.

Construction workers are also receiving various forms of support. XCMG rolls out its Global Excellent Operator Program. In Singapore, foreign workers are now required to participate in a “setting-in” programme. Startups are also venturing into extending the capabilities of the construction worker, either through bionics or intelligent machinery.

With Christmas coming up, what kind of technological upgrades do you think will provide a major boost for your construction team?
