Role & Integration of Blockchain in Project Delivery


Blockchain is an information technology that inherently adapts to these structural problems. This technology is capable of bridging the lack of trust between the stakeholders, automating a lot of currently manual processes, providing a secure and reliable infrastructure for collaboration and information exchange while increasing transparency and providing reliable chronological record keeping. Implementation of blockchain technology in the construction industry can lead to smart contracts with fewer administrative struggles; improve project flow, material, and service delivery; and keep BIM and project documents current and secure. 

Hosted by the Project Delivery AIA Knowledge Community

Recorded live March 8, 2022.
