The construction industry has been with mankind for centuries. From building huts and pyramids to bridges and skyscrapers, construction work dates back to the BCE era and is still evolving rapidly today.
While technology continues to grow and expand, so does the demand for construction. A rise in single-family homes being built in 2017, for example, has increased the industry’s overall spend to maintain a consistent uptick.
What does this mean for construction workers? Simply put, it means their jobs aren’t going anywhere. In fact, jobs in construction have consistently been on the rise since 2011, which can partially be attributed to a strengthening U.S. economy.
Because of this, the construction industry must keep up with a rise in demand as well as another mandate – going green.
