Investing in the territory: conditions, criticalities, resources, opportunities

Claudio De Albertis

The new building cycle will bring with it a different market than the traditional one, hence the need to identify some strategic areas that refer to the current models of supply and demand, in particular the demand for housing which continues to grow and that relative to the transformation of the existing heritage. In the coming years, the challenge for the building sector will be to embark on a process of highly significant innovation, guided by the dynamics of globalization, technological evolution as well as energy and environmental issues.
