Reviewing the top construction trends in 2019.

This year, the construction industry has integrated new technologies and ideas that have changed how most people look at construction.  Here are some of the major trends that have changed how construction projects are planned, designed, and executed.

  • Green Construction

As concern for the environment grows, so has the popularity of green construction.  The purpose of green design is to make construction projects more environmentally friendly.  Green construction can take many forms, from using eco-friendly building materials, to reducing project waste, to implementing resource-efficient systems into buildings.

  • Drone Technology

Many construction firms have adopted drone technology as a way to make construction projects safer and more efficient.  For instance, drones are often used to map large areas, collect site data, access remote areas, and monitor project progress.  Additionally, drones are also used to keep an eye on workers, ensuring that they are practicing the proper safety procedures.

  • Modular Construction

Modular construction is where a structure, or parts of a structure, are built offsite and then transported and installed at the final project site.  Modular construction has grown in popularity as a cheaper and quicker means of building a structure from the ground up.  As an added bonus, modular construction produces less waste, which makes this an environmentally friendly building method.
