On 28 and 29 October, the Ghana Institution of Surveyors held their annual seminar and it was with great delight that NMSI and Genelec Support Services (GSS) were asked to attend as part of the panel discussions.

Jacob Yalley, Head QS of NMSI-GSS, an up and coming chartered Quantity Surveyor, spoke about robotics in the
construction industry. His discussion included: on-site real time cameras, drone technology and project monitoring;
reliance on cloud computing and remote working; developing ICT systems on medical record (Mentisoft),
pharmaceutical and warehouse management systems; and communications with online conferencing for global workforce. The other panellist included a chartered quantity surveyor and a real-estate academic from a local university.

Damian Malins, NMSI’s Construction Manager and Projects Director, also gave a presentation to the delegates. This presentation covered the major steps in the construction process of the ‘Built To Care Ghana’ Hospital Project and how lessons can be learnt. He also discussed the key issue of work force management, highlighting the importance of employment from within the local community.

The seminar was insightful and informative and allowed a diverse amount of knowledge sharing. It also ensured that those who attended were better informed of the most up to date and new trends affecting their industry. ICT is becoming very important, and soon robotics in the construction industry will enhance productivity and efficiency in this field of works.
