Construction Industry Trends for 2020

As we leave 2019 behind and enter a new decade, it’s time to investigate the latest construction industry trends for 2020.

At hebs group, we believe in keeping up with new and emerging trends as part of our growth and prepare for the future in an industry that continues to evolve year on year.

There are so many advancements and we intend to make our new build, fit out, and refurbishment projects easier, safer, and more efficient for clients.


One of the biggest focuses in building construction and design is sustainability. Over the years, companies have aimed to reduce their carbon emissions and use resources effectively at a fraction of the cost.

Such solutions include better thermal materials like sheep’s wool insulation designed to last and keep buildings protected and heated for longer.

Effective water usage to help maintain reservoir levels, and maximising natural lighting in building design to reduce electrical costs are just some of the ways in which we can build a sustainable future.

Green construction

Similar to sustainability, green construction refers to incorporating environmentally friendly methods and products in each step of a project; from the planning stages right through to construction, maintenance and demolition.

A green building is an economically efficient one, and means less damage to the environment, especially with regards to the high level of derelict buildings.

Some materials like timber for formwork, bamboo as an alternative to concrete construction and using recycled plastics instead of sourcing new materials are becoming increasingly popular. According to a Statista report, the green building materials market will reach 433 billion U.S. dollars by 2024.

VR and Robotics

If you thought VR and robotics is made for the media, gamers, and techno enthusiasts – think again!

These technologies are already making a big impact in the construction industry by helping designers and architectures to visualise buildings in detail and spot errors quickly.

Drones are on the rise too and according to ABI research the collaborative robotics market is predicted to surge to $1 billion in total revenue by 2020. These could be a huge advantage on construction sites for surveying and ensuring the safety of workers.
