What are the new trends for the upcoming year for the Construction Industry?

girders-1Keeping abreast with new and emerging trends in the construction industry is imperative and not only does it help you keep your company from falling behind, it helps you prepare for the future. This year has been exciting, with various changes to supply routes and technology. With the ever-evolving nature of the construction industry, company owners must stay up-to-date if they want to remain relevant and competitive.


Green construction is a formidable force to reckon with in the industry. More and more buildings and plans are incorporating green technology into the construction process. Green construction entails a methodology of building projects in an environmentally responsible and resource-efficient way. It covers from planning, design, to construction, maintenance as well as demolition. Apparently, the construction industry accounts for about 20% of global emissions. However, with dilapidated buildings and an ever-increasing population, there is need for more buildings. By building environmentally friendly structures and focusing on the longevity of the building, it is better for the environment.

Furthermore, with green construction methods, there is an increase in research into green construction projects. We talk of carbon scrubbing building facades, bricks made of recycled cigarette butts, thermally driven air conditioners and asphalt that will heal itself. This increase in green technology is part of the construction industry trends that will continue.

Modular and fabricated construction projects is another trend we’ll continue to see into next year. These are becoming more and more popular because of the rate at which they can build residential and commercial buildings. This is basically a prefabricated approach to building repetitive structures. Buildings such as offices, hotels, apartments, etc are great for modular and prefabricated buildings.

This trend is on the rise because of the amount of material, time, and flexibility. Modular construction can save companies a lot of time and money. The reason that unit are built off site in a factory, companies do not have to worry about the weather. The units also recycle material they do not end up using or even excess material. This helps cut back on waste which is currently undergoing a big push currently. They can also build units that meet your precise specifications quickly and easily.
