Construction 'goes green worldwide'

Sep 24 2008

Construction firms across the globe are becoming increasingly greener in their building methods, a new report has revealed.

The study, conducted by McGraw Hill Construction Analytics found that the over half of those polled believe their organisations practice some kind of environmentally friendly measures, edie.net reported.

A total of 53 per cent of respondents said they believed around 60 per cent of the projects they would be working on in future would incorporate some form of environmentally friendly policy.

A further 32 per cent said they felt green building already made up for more than 10 per cent of the construction market worldwide.

Moral issues were cited as the main reason for firms to go green in most regions, with some companies in the Middle East saying it was also because it encourages expansion of their country's economy.

Earlier this week, Lifestyle Homes of Canada announced an estate of newly constructed eco-homes would be available for public viewing on Saturday in Okotoks, Calgary.
