Construction industry

The construction sector has undoubtedly undergone a substantial transformation after the 2008 crisis. Today it faces significant challenges: sustainability, the industrialisation of its processes and an increasingly regulated market.

The construction sector is made up not only by construction companies and promoters. The industrial manufacturers of necessary materials like concrete or that provide services and the various technicians and estates that intervene in the projects, in the execution, the control and completion of them are participants.

Traditionally, the construction industry has shown a reserved attitude towards sustainability, standardisation and improvement. The situation has changed dramatically after the 2008 crisis, which has forced the sector to modernise and improve its competitiveness.

The European Union is moving towards the standardisation of the sector. Regulation (EU) 305/2011 represents a new opportunity for manufacturers of breakthrough construction products, to establish systems, controls and improvement tools that lead to higher quality and more competitive products.

The European Union and the different Spanish public administrations are promoting green public procurement. Carbon footprint, Environmental Product Declarations (EPD), LEED, BREEAM or VERDE are systems that have come to stay. There will be organisations that will not seize the opportunity and will see another missed opportunity pass.
