2020 Construction Trends: 30+ Experts Weigh In

What kind of changes have you seen in the construction industry over the last year? Now, what about the last decade? The construction industry of 2010 looks dramatically different than the one at the end of 2019 – and for a good reason. Today’s jobsites are filled with more technology and talent than ever, and projects are being delivered at accelerated rates. 

But, as in years past, more change is on the horizon. So, what can we expect to see in the construction industry over the course of the next year – and even the coming decade? 

My crystal ball predictions for 2020 construction trends? Considering that the building industry needs to increase output by 30% to meet demands, the pressure to deliver is mounting. I anticipate there will be concentrated focus in these three areas to alleviate the pressure:  

  • Off-site Construction– Better initial planning, site constraints, and tightened schedules will only be met with off-site construction.
  • Skilled Labor Shortage – Programs and companies will be investing in creative ways to fill this shortage. This will come by increasing investment of government, education, and company resources.
  • Increased Technology Investment – The above two points need technology as a leverage to accelerate these changes.

But this is just my perspective. Recently, we also turned to experts, thought leaders, and innovators in the industry to get their thoughts on 2020 construction trends and predictions.
