The construction industry is always evolving. We are now past the quarter mark for 2018, and we have already seen quite a few trends coming out of the world of construction. Many of which are exciting and could significantly shape the industry for years to come. Here are a few of the major construction industry trends of 2018!
Increased Focus On Safety
Safety is always the top priority for any construction-related project. Every year, there is always an alarming number of workplace accidents. In recent years, there has been a focus of implementing enhanced safety procedures throughout all industry practices. This is evident through new safety technologies, such as mobile applications.
Sustainability has been a hot topic in construction in recent years. It is crucial that companies are fixated on the ecological impacts of their work at all times. Reliable Contracting has a green industry commitment. We are always concerned about our effects on the environment with every construction-related project. We stay true to being a member of the green industry through our stormwater management services, our usage of recycled materials, and our warm-mix asphalt.
We should expect technology to continue to grow this year. Examples of technologies include mobile applications, usage of drones, 3D printing, and autonomous vehicles. Also, we see a dramatic spike in the use of augmented and virtual reality so companies can see projects prior to construction.
We have seen offsite construction slowly gain popularity in the last few years. What makes offsite construction so appealing to companies is that efforts are in a controlled location with fewer chances for things to go wrong. Weather will not inhibit operations, and it is a safer environment for workers. This is a trend that should continue to grow in 2018.
