The importance of implementing sustainable construction/development within the UK construction industry, and the essential factors/barriers it possesses.
Large-scale development in the building and construction sector and its physical infrastructure is a cause for concern in the UK. However, this issue needs to be addressed in a way that is thought of as being feasible. There is great urgency to make sustainable breakthrough now, when the construction industry is at its peak,
rather than try and change things after the fact. However, there are a number of challenges to the introduction of sustainable construction development and practices, and certain enablers need to be addressed to help the construction sector adopt a more sustainable path towards development. Rethinking Construction 1998 – Construction Task Force (Sir John Egan), together with Accelerating Change 2002 – Construction Task Force (Sir John Egan) suggests a strategy for addressing some of these issues. The duty of every stakeholder is now is to find the means to implement these suggestions at their various levels of operation by developing effective sustainable development action plans.
Sustainable development in the construction sector in the United Kingdom has gradually become a connected part of construction planning and management for the administration, independent construction companies and the UK consumers. Keep in mind that in the same manner as consumers will want organisations working for them to hold fast to sustainability standards, contractors and consultants have to embrace sustainable construction principles for efficiency and effective operational purposes. In the construction sector, there is enduring demands by the administration that sustainability is satisfied in development projects and that these projects are constructed using sustainable construction methods.
As the demand for more infrastructure increase, demands for and concern about labour that is being used also becomes an issue of concern.
