New Trends in Construction and Building
Building information modeling

Building Information Modelling takes into account the most crucial thing in a construction project: Collaboration. To put it simply, BIM refers to a collaborative method of working which is based on the generation and exchange of data and information between the various project parties.

Project management software

Like various other industries, construction has realized the potential of implementing a project management software. Real-time project management software has been continuously advancing in order to draw more insights from data.

VR and AR

Compared to augmented reality, virtual reality is a much more common tool in construction. It is often used in BIM. Its biggest benefit is the ability to provide virtual walk throughs in order to sell property and pitch architectural ideas to clients. The possibility to virtually show clients what their investment will look like beforehand, makes VR a very attractive technology.


Robotics and Automation have revolutionized various industries. Its arrival in construction has been slow but it’s here now and rapidly spreading. There has been much technological advancement made in robotics. One such example is MIT’s Digital Construction Platform which uses 3D printing to create form structures.


There has been much talk about Drones and the numerous advantages they provide to a construction project. It is extensively used in mapping the construction site (thereby gathering data of the entire site), reporting the changes and updates of the project to clients, and monitoring and inspecting job sites.

Modular construction

Modular buildings or prefabricated buildings is the development of a building structure off-site, and then transporting it to the desired site without compromising on quality. There is no change in building materials and supplies, and the job is done in less time.

Green construction

One of the most significant change observed in the construction industry is the growing interest in green construction. There has been a global change in the way people consume. Consumers have started to change their lifestyles.

In short, 2018 holds

A lot of excitement for the construction industry. From BIM to VR to Green Construction… we will see a lot of progress in all of these sectors. Lets keep a look out and see where the industry is next year.

Risk management plan in construction

Intense competition for available work
Expectation to produce a high return on all invested funds
Intense pressure to save as much money as possible as well as time
Consistently low margins and lower profits
A high number of litigation cases as well as disputes

What Owners Need to do to Increase the Value of their Home

Manufactured homes, in contrast to traditional homes, depreciate in value after purchase, while traditional homes, on the whole, increase in value over time. According to real estate broker in Solon, OH, the older a manufactured home is, the more difficult it is to increase its value. If you want to sell your manufactured home, there are a few things you can do to make it more marketable.
Upgrades at a Low Cost
Upgrades that add value should be cheap enough to justify the cost because the total cost of a manufactured home is relatively low compared to traditional housing options. Major renovations, such as adding square footage or moving walls, may be too costly to recoup when the time comes to sell. Painting the interior and exterior, upgrading the plumbing and lighting fixtures, and adding new cabinets and appliances are all inexpensive fixes that will improve the appeal of a manufactured home to potential buyers.
Upgrades that are more energy efficient
Installing energy-saving upgrades to a manufactured home will not only save money right away, but will also add long-term value. Energy-saving upgrades include installing energy-efficient windows and doors, adding more insulation, applying weather stripping and caulk, and installing insulated skirting, according to the US Department of Energy. Manufactured homes, as opposed to local building codes, are governed by the Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards, or "HUD Code."
Consistent Maintenance
Maintaining and staying on top of required repairs is one of the best ways to either keep or add value to a manufactured home. When determining the value of a property, including manufactured homes, appraisers and real estate agents consider the property's quality. A home in excellent condition will usually command a higher asking price. Additionally, prospective buyers prefer a house that is ready to move into.
Placing on Real Property
Because of the limited financing options, manufactured homes on leased lots are more difficult to sell. As a result, they can be up to 50% less expensive than manufactured homes built on the homeowner's land. Despite the fact that relocating a home can be expensive, the value gained can be significant, even after moving costs are deducted from the final appraised value. Consult with a real estate expert to see if this is a viable option for you.
