Skyscrapers are reaching for new heights, huge tunnels are establishing new transportation connections, bridges are spanning greater distances than ever before. What comes to mind when you think of the largest engineering projects in the world?


Mega projects are large‐​scale, complex ventures that typically cost a billion dollars or more, take many years to develop and build, involve multiple public and private stakeholders, and impact millions of people.


When we think of mega-projects, we think of infrastructure developments. Some examples of mega projects are high-speed rail lines, airports, seaports, motorways, hospitals, offshore oil and gas facilities, wind farms.


Engineering mega-projects live up to their reputations in many ways, including mega-size, mega-cost, mega-complexity, and mega-risk. Risk management in mega-projects include using smart solutions for data collaboration. A trusted source is required to manage huge project data, including project changes, scope and budget. Real-time collaboration and control are essential to sync between the large number of contractors in the project.


AI-powered software tools help avoiding costly mistakes and reduce risks. An AI based system, with access to a database of many plans of projects that have been completed before, is able to develop design alternatives based on the knowledge it gains from the plans in the database.


Civil construction sites are considered as one of the riskiest environments where many potential hazards may occur. IoT in the construction industry can help enhance safety measures for the workforce in many ways: workforce tracking, health monitoring, real-time hazards reporting, and more. Heavy construction equipment is now being equipped with sensors to keep track of things like temperature fluctuations, abnormal patterns, fuel or liquid levels, humidity, pressure, gas, and more. If something abnormal or unsafe is detected, workers can be alerted to make a change before equipment fails or someone is in danger.
