The evolution is always looking into the future, taking into account the new needs of the construction world: flexibility, mixed use, increased speed of construction, durability, eco-design,…
Adapting and responding fast is not a need today, it is a consequence of the current world. However, this evolution shall absolutely take in account the knowledge from the past.
