As more and more Americans become more environmentally-conscious, there has been a push in the U.S. construction industry toward green building activities and practices. In fact, according to one recent study, that trend is expected to continue for the next three years.

In a study released by Dodge Data & Analytics and cited by writer Phil Hall in an article for NMP, those polled from the U.S. construction industry said that they projected that more than 60 percent of their projects would involve green building by the year 2018. Of these projects, the highest percentage of green-oriented construction will include institutional projects such as hospitals, schools, and public buildings, retrofits of existing buildings and new commercial construction including office and retail buildings.

“The strong U.S. industry for green building projects is clearly an opportunity for U.S. firms, but so is the rapid rise of green in many of the developing countries,” said Stephen Jones, senior director of industry insights at Dodge Data & Analytics. “Expertise from experienced green designers, builders and manufacturers from the U.S. is likely to be essential to support the aggressive green building expectations revealed by the study respondents.”
