The construction industry is one of the oldest industries in the world. The moment man became sedentary, construction began to flourish, becoming more and more complex over time to meet society’s growing demands. We went from huts and watermills to skyscrapers and hydro-electric dams! Therefore it is not surprising that, today, with the amount of resources needed to build a building or an infrastructural project such as a dam or a highway, the construction industry generates about 40% of global energy-related carbon emissions – from raw material extraction through construction, to building exploitation. As depressing as that might sound, it’s worth pointing out we are entering a new era of technological revolution, permitting a new approach towards the dinosaur industry that is construction!
