Human Augmentation in the Construction Industry

Human Augmentation technology has the ability to enhance the lives – and work – of people around the globe

With the global market for human augmentation projected to reach US $22.4 billion by the year 2027,1 there is growing momentum behind human augmentation in the construction industry.
