Globally, confidence in the construction sector does not appear to be diminished by a slightly more turbulent economic context in 2018 than previously years, and some extremely large and costly projects are being delivered and planned for at present. Of note is that many of the biggest projects are occurring in developed countries, with cities such as London, Paris and Moscow featuring heavily in the list of biggest global projects.
The future pipeline for global construction looks healthy and despite incoming economic issues such as Brexit and US-China trade wars, analysts are buoyant about the prospects for the industry.
The Tel Aviv Light Rail System is a huge construction infrastructure project underway in Tel Aviv, Israel. Effectively the project is using a combination of different rapid transportation systems including over ground and underground light rail routes and joining bus networks with the aim of creating a complete mass transit system for the city using a number of transport methods.
The A101 development is a plan to boost and regenerate an area of New Moscow in the South of the city. The scheme involves building a huge array of housing, schools, infrastructure and commercial zones to rejuvenate the area and provide modern accessible housing with good transport links. Moscow has a large number of construction projects in the pipeline and whilst the Russia World Cup of 2018 contributed a great deal to its total construction projects, the city still has a great deal yet to come.
The Zayed Mixed-Use development site is further evidence of the emirate's ambitions to be one of the world's most prominent cities. This development aims to further increase the residential capacity and build an all-inclusive area that can handle the majority of residents' needs in a single area. This kind of development is hoped to work towards solving some of the city's challenges such as its rapidly growing population, expensive and unstable rent prices and concerning environmental issues caused by too much traffic.
