Upcoming Trends in Construction in Sri Lanka
As the worldview on sustainable living continues to change, the way companies design and build too have begun to evolve to cater to a new breed of clients. Not to be left behind, construction companies in Galle
are looking into numerous new trends. If you are interested in investing in property in south of Sri Lanka, read on to expand your understanding about these latest trends.
Architects and construction companies alike have taken an interest in insulated buildings that provide air and moisture barriers to seek protection from the elements and enhance energy efficiency. This trend is rather useful given the hot and humid climate in Galle and exposure to constant sea breeze if the property overlooks the ocean. Progressive construction companies have already begun to choose HVAC systems to save energy and filtration systems to conserve water. Such technologies will add value to buildings through contributing to the larger cause of minimizing the impact on the environment. With climate change becoming an inevitable threat, clients are more likely to look for sustainable buildings.
Open spaces are well-suited to Sri Lanka’s climate. Holiday villas in particular can look more visually pleasing and appeal to holiday makers when the design concept accommodates wide open spaces. Architects use design strategies such as floor levels that vary in height and changes in surface colours and textures to create enhanced open space living.

In Sri Lanka, the cost of construction material is rather high and robust software systems can help builders achieve cost-efficiency in other areas. Certain software packages even offer tools for biding, estimating, project management and even human resources and accounting. The future of construction in Sri Lanka is likely to hold affordable integrated systems to increase efficiency and manage costs.
