Trend Alert | What is Sustainable Construction

Green construction technology advancements have enhanced environmental protection measures, improved resource efficiency, and elevated building quality standards. As green building gains popularity, businesses may consider embracing the movement. Read on.

What is Sustainable Construction?

Sustainable or green construction means using recyclable and renewable materials in building projects and minimizing energy consumption and waste production. The primary goal of the sustainable construction method is to reduce its impact on our environment.

Sustainable Construction Trends in 2023

3D Printing
In the construction industry, 3D Printing reduces material waste, accelerates production times, and enhances design flexibility. 3D printers also construct buildings from locally sourced materials, such as sand and clay, while some printers use self-healing materials to repair the damage.

Integrated Environmental Assessments
IEAs allow for evaluating and reducing the environmental impacts of buildings throughout their life cycle. In addition, building information modeling (BIM) facilitates comprehensive visualization of the building and its systems.

Construction Robots
Robots enhance sustainability and efficiency in the construction industry. It performs various tasks, such as site inspection and demolition. For example, robots and drones conduct site inspections and collect data to monitor progress, safety, and quality.

Energy-Efficient Architecture
Energy-efficient architecture reduces the environmental impact of buildings and optimizes their performance. One of the strategies to achieve this goal is a passive design, which uses natural elements such as sunlight, wind, and vegetation to regulate the indoor temperature and lighting of buildings.

Offsite Construction
Offsite construction involves manufacturing building components in a controlled environment before transportation to the construction site. Prefabrication and modular construction techniques minimize waste, enhance quality control, and shorten construction time.
