However there is whole other side to construction, those who put the plans together, make sure the measurements are right and so on, and get the project completed, this could be you!
Many (including you) are at the cutting edge on engineering and development in terms of what can be built, where cables can be laid etc.
You no doubt rely on your knowledge and powerful computer programmes, but why carry a laptop around or wait to get back to the office before drawing plans, making adjustments or putting together a quote.
The development in mobile applications and the speed at which they have taken off has been incredible and is doesn’t mean that you have been left behind in terms of mobile applications.
