The construction industry, like everything else, is perennially evolving with passage of time. Every year, we see new trends ranging from new technology to stronger focus on sustainability. Many of these trends are aimed at making construction work easier and more efficient. So, it is essential for any business owner to be abreast of these changes, else fall behind in a slew of competition.
Below are some of the trends that will propel the growth of prefabrication
1. Green Design and Construction Technology
There has been a shift in focus in adopting green design and technology for construction, globally. Most construction projects are expected to adopt this technology in the years to come. The adoption of green design is an endeavour to create more eco friendly and resource efficient structures that does not deplete the environment. It includes every aspect of construction, including planning and design, demolition, and cleanup. This is a need of the hour especially because there is a huge requirement for new construction to replace the ageing structures.
2. Modular, Prefabricated Buildings
Prefabrication is a technology that is widely known in USA, Europe and Australia. It is now slowly making inroads in India, with more and more people becoming aware of this emerging trend. Prefabricated buildings units will continue to soar in popularity. Prefabricated construction is modular in nature and offers exclusive benefits like quick construction, ease of expansion, insulation to name a few. As these building components are constructed in factory, the changing weather construction do not affect construction time. So projects get executed on time, without delays caused by external factors. Also, the waste left behind after construction is minimal and certain parts of it can be recycled.
3. More Focus on Sustainability
As the awareness continues to increase, most of the the organisations are focussing on sustainability. For this reason, it seems imperative that most of the modern construction companies will shift its focus towards construction that is sustainable.
The consolidated outlook of the construction industry is positive. Being an important part of any successful city, there are rising costs involves, which is slated to make competition stiffer. With modern technologies coming in, the construction industry is expected to have a paradigm shift in the years to come.
