Construction companies are increasingly using green construction techniques to construct energy-efficient buildings and reduce construction costs. Green building refers to the practice of using sustainable building materials and construction processes to create buildings with energy efficiency and minimal environmental impact. According to the World Green Building Trends Survey 2015, about 51% of construction companies in the UK were involved in green building projects. Certifications such as Energy Leadership and Environmental Design (LEED) help construction companies develop high-performance, sustainable residential and commercial buildings, as well as offering a variety of benefits, from tax deductions to marketing opportunities. Sustainable building materials, such as natural paints and steel beams made from recycled material, are being used extensively in the UK. Other green building techniques, such as cross ventilation for a more natural environment, green building software like Construction Suite to ensure ecological compliance and the Green Globes management tool are also being used in the construction industry. For example, some of the leading companies that use green construction techniques include Turner Construction Co, Clark Group, AECOM, Hensel Phelps and Holder Construction.

Building construction costs have increased steadily due to rising material costs in the historic period. Companies in the sector experienced moderate growth in profits with rising prices for materials such as crude oil, a key component of asphalt that increased 49%, and sawn wood, an important component used in building construction, which increased 23% during the historical period. In 2018, cement prices increased 2.5% and plumbing and accessories increased 3% in the USA. High material prices have negatively affected the building construction market during the historic period.

The population profile of most countries is aging, increasing the demand for age-friendly infrastructure. According to estimates based on data from the US Population Reference Bureau, the global population over 65 has increased by about 33% between 2013-2017, from 450 million to 601 million. Thus, the demand for infrastructure improvements that are friendly to the “elderly” has increased during the historic period. The wider houses and surroundings had to be adapted to become more secure and inclusive. Better residential and also non-residential buildings had to be more accessible to the elderly. This resulted in an increase in building construction activity.
