Insights Why should you build a digital and design career in India?

While many people think of construction as manual labour, in reality, it is a varied industry that requires many different skill sets. In fact, there are many different digital design jobs in construction out there – building design jobs for example are complex and rewarding. By working with the latest technologies to design and develop buildings and infrastructure, you can improve the world.

With policy-makers eager to support digitalization in construction and more opportunities in the field than ever, it’s a sound investment in your future. Here are just a few of the reasons why you should build a digital and design career in India.

What is digital design in construction?

From the most basic software program to the most complex technological solutions, we increasingly use digital design in construction. Digital design in construction refers to the use of digital tools and technology in all aspects of the construction progress. Digital tools can be used for the design, planning, and material gathering every step of the way, from the initial planning stages to the final ribbon cutting.

Digital tools are increasingly employed in construction projects around the world to reduce carbon emissions, improve processes, improve safety, and save on costs. Most importantly, they can take designs to the next level and improve buildings and infrastructure for everyone who uses them

How are designers using digital on construction projects?

Today, designers use digital in every aspect of construction, allowing them to do their jobs more efficiently and effectively with a real-time connection between the office and the site. For instance, building information modelling technicians utilize technology, such as computer software, to compile all project information in one place and view it in multiple dimensions.

Computer-aided design operators are another example of sustainability in construction design. They use computer software to produce 2D and 3D drawings and technical building diagrams that are then used by architects, engineers and other construction workers.

These are just two examples, but Atkins’ digital design jobs in construction offer professionals a wide landscape of opportunities and all of the benefits of a global presence. This is a fast-paced industry and a chance to gain unrivalled experiences and thrive in a high-performance workplace culture.

How will digital and design jobs help sustainability in construction?

The future is digital. Will you help make it green?

Digital tools allow designers to visualize and address all kinds of problems, and make their plans and blueprints more efficient. Modelling sustainability in construction can help designers develop eco-friendly solutions that reduce the use of resources, emit fewer emissions, and benefit local communities.

This has never been more important in construction, as COP27 recently restated the importance of reduce carbon emissions to keep global temperature beneath a 1.5 C increase.

At Atkins we believe that sustainability is a way of working that reduces the impact that our businesses have on the environment, society, and economies at a global and local scale. We are currently contributing to all 17 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and over the next five years, we will focus our improvement activities on making the most strategic impact.
