2016 was yet another good year for the construction sector. After years of revenue declines, less spending and in the worst cases even foreclosures now is the time for growth. The outlook for 2017 and 2018 are positive, with promising weather good years for construction companies. The main growth area is residential, with renovation of existing dwellings occupy the biggest role.
The reason for the large part of renovations in the figures is due to several factors. For example, many converted vacant commercial properties in residential, there have been many moves by buying and selling houses, the housing associations are active and there are additional investments in sustainability where a renovation is necessary.
Sustainability is a widely used term, but what does it actually mean? By sustainability can be a lot of products but also services hang on. CSR business practices, respect for the environment and climate, reuse of raw materials and efficient use of energy can answer to the question; “What is sustainability. The dictonary defines sustainability as “1: Long-term, 2: little subject to wear or deterioration and 3: Environmental low impact ‘
