The housing and construction sectors encompass a wide range of activities relating to the construction of buildings or civil engineering projects that form the built environment. These sectors cover a diverse range of industries ranging from mining & quarrying, to the construction of infrastructure and buildings, the manufacture and supply of products, as well as maintenance and repair of existing structures.

Innovations in the housing and construction sector has a drastic effect in our everyday lives, and can range from improvements in processes, to the incorporation of new technologies such as artificial intelligence or 3D printing, to the development of new building materials and products.
