What are the most popular, eco-friendly building materials for both commercial and residential construction in 2020?

According at a recent survey:

  • Majority of professionals believe bamboo (74%) is the eco-friendly building material that will experience the greatest increase in usage within the property industry in 2020
  • Thereafter, 69% expect straw bales to have a strong inclusion in construction projects scheduled for next year
  • Contrastingly, cork (38%) is the eco-friendly building material that the experts predict will be used the least in the property industry during 2020

Interested in sustainable building, Sell House Fast surveyed 582 architects, engineers and construction (AEC) professionals to identify the eco-friendly building materials they expect the property (commercial as well as non-commercial) industry to increase using in 2020.

“The property industry is more eco-conscious than ever before. This has led to a surge in the innovation and development of eco-friendly building materials. As professionals become better acquainted with the properties and benefits of different eco-friendly building materials, their adoption rate in construction projects can expect to see a positive increase. This research certainly highlights the eco-friendly building materials that will have a big impact in 2020, said Robby du Toit, the Managing Director of Sell House Fast.
