3 Construction Trends to Look Out For in 2022


As we move into 2022, it is clear that a lot has changed for everyone, and the construction business is no different.

While we collectively have a focus on how we can go greener and how we can keep ourselves safe amongst the ongoing pandemic, it just might be that we can add the construction industry to the list of those looking into what they can do to contribute to these worthwhile causes.

This piece will take a look at three construction trends that you might spot in 2022 - read on to find out what they are.

Building Eco-Friendly and Getting Greener


There has been a trend over 2021 that suggests that the construction industry wants to go down a much greener path for the foreseeable future. You might wonder, “How can industries go about this?”. There have been a few practices that have been implemented already, which includes but is not limited to trying to keep and increase sustainability, control costs, and also maintain efficient processes while keeping the carbon footprint down and reducing energy expenditure too - especially as the construction industry often has to use machinery that is particularly energy-intensive.


Supply chains are also a big part of going green as well, as it is important to keep things as local as possible to keep the carbon footprint down - so companies will more than likely be trying to focus on getting supplies as close to the company or the destination as possible.

New Builds for Homes


The demand for homes right now is at an all-time high, and having somewhere to live is a human right and an essential. America has said to be short more than 5 million homes, which surely will be having a significant impact on people’s livelihoods and welfare.  Houses are being snapped up left, right, and center, and there is an ongoing demand for new builds every single day, which is exactly why this trend is expected to grow significantly throughout 2022 and onwards.
Understandably, this demand can get overwhelming for construction companies when there is so much to do, so it is imperative that your business is organized so that you can
successfully manage your construction projects.

A Strong Focus on Health and Safety


Since the pandemic, there has been, quite rightly, a strong focus on health and safety, and it is likely that this stringent focus will remain for the foreseeable future as COVID continues to spread. Safety precautions need to stay in place to make sure there are safe environments for workers to do their job in and to also minimize any further spread of illnesses.

Of course, this is not just about COVID either, as the construction sector has a worrying number of accidents that happen annually. In fact, a whopping
150,000 injuries happen each year, which could demonstrate there is still a massive need for some serious intervention and change to improve these statistics. It takes both employers and employees to work on improving this number.
