Industry Insights

The Nonresidential Building Construction industry is currently experiencing several key trends that are influencing its growth and performance.

One of the primary trends is the increasing demand for sustainable building practices, as more clients are prioritizing environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient designs. This trend is driving the adoption of sustainable materials and technologies, and the implementation of green building certification programs such as LEED.

The growth in the use of technology is also a major trend. Construction firms are implementing Building Information Modeling (BIM) and other digital tools to improve the efficiency of their processes, reduce costs, and enhance safety on job sites.

Another trend is the increasing focus on safety. Construction companies are taking measures to improve the safety practices on job sites, such as implementing strict safety guidelines and training programs, and the use of safety equipment.

The COVID-19 pandemic has also had a significant impact on the industry, causing disruptions in the supply chain and delaying projects. Buildings are being redesigned to accommodate new pandemic-related requirements such as increased air filtration systems and touchless technology.

Finally, there is a growing trend towards the use of offsite construction and modular building techniques, which are being adopted to overcome labor shortages, reduce construction times, and increase efficiency. These trends are expected to continue to shape the future of the Nonresidential Building Construction industry.
