This includes equipment and space upgrades, existing building renewals, re-development and new construction. Four perspectives will be provided – equipment supplier, construction industry representative, government and building envelope professionals. Specific market drivers will be highlighted, including macro-economic factors, business practices in the new economy, the changing face of construction, codes and standards and other regulations and investment by the private and public sectors. These translate to housing starts, non-residential construction, building stock renewal, equipment replacement, tenant improvements and other activities. Market statistics will be provided, along with commentary on the technical attributes of investment, where applicable.
