Government entities and qualifying owner-operators do not have to go it alone and figure out how to pay for better infrastructure solutions. In the United States, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) does not only earmark billions of dollars toward the repair and development of infrastructure, but it also sets aside hundreds of millions of dollars specifically for the purchase of technology to help in infrastructure repair and development.
Though funding infrastructure-related technology supports IIJA’s overall goal of shoring up the country’s infrastructure, it benefits owner-operators well beyond the scope of the act. Users can eliminate the financial barrier to entry and use the new technology however they see fit. That way owner-operators can explore innovations, such as digital twins, 4D construction modeling, advanced reality capture, and machine learning, and learn how they can sharpen their work without worrying about the return on investment.
