Experts predict bamboo will be the eco-friendly material most used by the property industry in 2020

Bamboo is the eco-friendly building material that will experience the greatest increase in usage within the property industry in 2020, according to a poll of experts.

Property investment group, Sell House Fast, surveyed 582 architects, engineers and construction professionals to identify the sustainable building materials they expect the property (commercial as well as non-commercial) industry to be using more of next year.

Most (74 per cent) industry experts believe that bamboo will take the lead, followed by straw bales (69 per cent) and the sawdust-concrete combo, timbercrete (61 per cent).

Recycled plastics was identified by more than half (56 per cent), followed by ferrock, combining various recycled materials (47 per cent) and the bio-composite material, hempcrete (44 per cent).

Contrastingly, the experts predict that cork (38 per cent) will be the eco-friendly building material least involved in construction projects over the course of 2020.

Robby du Toit, Managing Director of Sell House Fast, comments: “The property industry is more eco-conscious than ever before. This has led to a surge in the innovation and development of eco-friendly building materials.

“As professionals become better acquainted with the properties and benefits of different eco-friendly building materials, their adoption rate in construction projects can expect to see a positive increase. This research certainly highlights the eco-friendly building materials that will have a big impact in 2020.”
