In addition to the third industrial revolution, industry 4.0 incorporates the adoption of IoT (internet of things), cyber security, augmented reality, big data, autonomous robot, additive manufacturing, simulations, system integration and cloud computing. The construction industry is considered as the third largest industrial sector and still adoption of industry 4.0 is awaited. There are numerous factors which obstruct the adoption of the fourth revolution. This study set the objective to identify the opportunity and challenges that lie within the adoption of industry 4.0 in the construction sector. Industry professionals are approached and their opinions and understandings of the IR4.0 are evaluated.
