Drawing on experts we’ve interviewed over the past several months, this inaugural report forecasts what our editors believe will be the prevailing trends next year, and what factors could potentially impact those trends, positively or negatively.
Our predictions touch on how the worldwide supply chain, labor availability, and climate change will affect construction demand, materials choices, and the industry’s search for technological answers. The coronavirus pandemic has given new life and purpose to certain building types and has altered how others are designed and function, perhaps permanently. Outcries for greater diversity and inclusion are also reshaping firms’ projects and personnel.
Our 10 Predictions report is part of our magazine’s ongoing mission to keep our readers informed and connect the dots to help firms prosper in this competitive and challenging environment.
