The AEC Industry can expect better outcomes in the year of 2022 but the economic recovery won’t happen overnight and challenges will still exist. Are you ready for a new normal for architecture, engineering and construction? Looking forward, here are the key AEC industry trends 2022 will bring.

1. Innovative technology

There is a five-year technological acceleration in only five months due to the pandemic, and the focus of the technological acceleration is increasing.

  • Increasing digitization
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Virtual reality
  • Augmented reality
  • Logical BIM evolution

Jim Highsmith, an American software engineer and author of a book on software development and methodology, shares some great advice on business trends and future prospects. “Agility is the ability to adapt and respond to change. Agile organizations see change as an opportunity, not a threat.”

2. Modularity

Have you ever considered higher quality, reduced shipping cost, reduced material & construction waste for your project? Modularization and prefabrication are the answers.

One of the best benefits of modular projects is that, it saves 20% of the budget. Because of this, by 2023 the modular construction market could reach $157 billion by 2023, according to some estimates. (Ref. https://bit.ly/318PlN0)

3. 3D Printing

Another leap of modernization in the Construction Industry – 3D Printing.

In Dubai, UAE, a decree has been issued to regulate the use of 3D printing in the construction sector. This will support the national target for 25% of all new buildings to be constructed using 3D printing technology by 2030, with the intention for Dubai to become a global leader for 3D printing technologies.

3D Printing is a technology that allows 3D objects to be printed from a digital design by building up layers of material. In recent years, this technology has become increasingly accessible and it is now gaining popularity in the construction industry.(Ref. https://bit.ly/3HjZLJh)

4. Sustainability and Green Construction Technology

Green building technology typically covers everything from geothermal heating to energy-efficient appliances. Companies can measure the success of going green in construction through metrics such as lower operating costs, improved occupant health, and higher occupancy rates. Now, there is an increasing demand for sustainability to reduce the carbon footprint throughout every stage of the construction process in buildings, maintenance, demolition etc.

5. Hybrid Work Force Model

Future of Work? – a blended workforce comprising employees who work remotely and those who work from an office or central location.

 Emerging from the pandemic is surprisingly the AE&C’s quick implementation of the remote work and looking forward to the coming years, the hybrid model is now established and utilizes.  Instead of structuring work around desks in a physical office space which compromises health risks, hybrid work generally enables employees to structure work around their lives.
