Technological and scientific progress, the implementation of new regulations and standards, and the constant effort to optimize costs are all factors that directly impact the construction sector. This is all the more true in the hotel industry where the property is considered a product that must be renewed incessantly to keep up with the evolution of consumers’ changing expectations and be made increasingly efficient.
Sustainable development is thus one of the major challenges of contemporary construction and plays a key role in the new regulations, customer decision making, and also management of production and operating costs. The environmental aspect is one of the key factors in the definition of a development project, particularly when it comes to new constructions. There is strong potential for the construction industry in terms of energy savings, as it is one of the highest consuming sectors.
This dossier dedicated to hotel construction takes a look at the techniques and technologies used by developers to create buildings that are more environmentally friendly and more energy efficient. It includes:
a section dedicated to materials favored by builders,
- then examines the growing trend of turning to prefabricated rooms to save time and money. It also gazes into the future and 3D construction,
