Construction Outlook: Key Trends Shaping the Future of the Design and Construction Industry

Attendees will have an opportunity to hear about key trends and shifts in the marketplace that have seen buoyant activity despite the global economic downturn. These trends drawn from extensive market research data, and McGraw-Hill Construction Dodge data are already showing shifts that will affect the future of construction when the economy picks up and construction activity increases again. The talk will focus on ongoing global industry trends surrounding BIM processes, prefabrication and modular construction, and green building covering new building and retrofit and renovation. Mr. Bernstein will also present the forecasted total construction Outlook starts data and discuss workforce and skill shortages and green jobs that are likely to increasingly impact construction. Policy trends related to construction and infrastructure projects will be highlighted as well as other key trends transforming the global industry such as mitigating risk through design/build and integrated project delivery, public-private partnerships, and the use of smarter materials.
