Like most industries, the construction industry is constantly evolving. However, the construction industry is very competitive, with businesses fighting for contracts they are continually evolving practices to save money and produce a better final product for the client. According to Patrick Shin (owner of Nan Inc), you can’t be stagnant in this industry, unless you’re constantly improving and evolving it’s unlikely your business will survive. Let’s go through 3 trends to look out for in construction.

1: Green Construction

“Going Green” isn’t a new trend, however it’s something not often thought about in construction. Clients often have green initiatives, and this extended into their choice of construction company.  Whether it’s small residential work or large scale cooperate towers, your business needs to adopt green practices. Green construction can involve all aspects of the construction process from design, materials and even maintenance.

2: Technology

Technology is constantly adapting and improving. The same goes for the tech you use on the construction site. Everything from management software, job site time clocks, to new tools or equipment and even new building techniques, can all help your business be more profitable and reduce costs. Even advancements not specific to construction need to be considered, a great example of this is drone technology. It’s now a common feature on construction sites even though it wasn’t initially designed to be used in this way.

3: Modular Construction

Modular construction is an approach that use pre-built or prefabricated models that are then assembled on site. It allows for economies of scale, so it keeps costs and build times down. It is already popular in the residential sector but is expected to expand into other areas of construction. This approach allows for a better and more accurate build as the modules are all factory built and aren’t subject to site limitations or weather restrictions.

Keep an eye out for these trends, the construction industry is dynamic so if you want to stay ahead of the competition you need to be at the forefront of the latest trends. The trends are constantly changing but when you keep on top of them you have the ability to gain more clients and become more profitable and cost efficient.
