Construction trends that emerged during the year 2021

3 trends in the construction area that are here to stay are:

This is demonstrated by the trend of streamlining the construction process through new ways such as: using ready-made cement, using tanks that pump mixture from several meters away to store large quantities on site while moving faster, saving time, money, and labor.


  1. Use of ready-made mixes: Those times where you had to mix materials and load them to where they were going to be used are long gone. It is no secret that they caused great strain, expenses, wastage, and wear and tear.

Ready-made mixes are the new trend in this sector, you just have to add water at the moment of use. This, in addition to being innovative, is quite practical and reduces waste, work and guarantees durability and functionality.


  1. Training of personnel to work alongside the new technologies that are being implemented: although its inclusion is very recent, it has arrived to change many paradigms in construction, since it is parallel to the implementation of new technologies and materials. For this reason, training staff is crucial to meet the standards of the challenge of adapting to the new.

Construction companies train their personnel because the key to their success comes from the exact knowledge of methods, techniques, materials, etc.
