About This Topic

Moving towards machine-dominated construction processes and the utilization of sustainable construction materials are key to success of construction industry in the near future. It is known that due to the complexity, high risk, and conservative character of the involved companies, the construction industry has lagged other industries in adopting new technologies and are more conservative in using sustainable materials. However, increasing demand for improving safety, reducing costs, improving productivity, and increasing sustainability has led to introduce new technologies and develop sustainable materials in the construction industry. This Special Issue (SI) focuses on the new trends in the construction technologies as well as the development and implementation of sustainable building and construction materials. Relevant topics to this SI include but not limited to the following topics:

• Construction technologies
• Adaption process
• Digital technology
• Additive manufacturing
• 3D printing
• Stereolithography
• Construction robots
• Automated construction
• Virtual and augmented reality
• Tracking systems
• Business information modelling
• Construction materials
• Building materials
• Sustainable construction
• Smart materials
• Zero CO2 emissions
• Environmental impact of new construction materials
• Mechanical properties
• Physical properties
• Durability of construction materials
• Characterization
