Five Newly Developed Construction Materials

PROPELLING THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY TOWARDS A MORE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE.

From spiked material costs and natural disasters to environmental concerns and lowered productivity, the construction industry is struggling to meet current economic demand while maintaining output. These five newly developed building materials are making waves, and have the potential to propel the construction industry towards a more sustainable future.

 

1. LAMINATED TIMBER

Potential to support tall structures and reduce 150 tons of carbon per story.

2. SELF-HEALING CONCRETE

Reducing Infrastructure maintenance requirements and cutting greenhouse gases.

3. MODULAR BAMBOO

Create earthquake-resistant buildings, new architecture forms, and reinforcing steel bars.

4. TRANSPARENT ALUMINUM

Smart dynamic windows that allow the user to control the amount of light and reduce HVAC costs.

5. WOOL BRICK

Reducing greenhouse gases from firing traditional bricks and increasing building cold climate resistance.

 

“BY REMAINING FOCUSED ON NEW TRENDS DISRUPTING THE INDUSTRY, WE’RE ABLE TO AVOID A PAINFUL SHIFT, WHILE CONSTANTLY DEVELOPING THESE NEW MATERIALS.”

– Randy Thomas, Principal at Abbott.
