The construction sector is undergoing fundamental changes. Both public authorities and private entities are facing increasing environmental regulation and technical demands, such as notably EPB, BREEAM and soil pollution legislation. Operators in the construction sector need to navigate such increasingly complex and specific sets of standards and requirements while remaining competitive. This becomes all the more relevant with the growing input at regional, national and European level. New structures and associations are emerging (e.g. Bouwteams) to tackle such developments.

In this context, ensuring construction process efficiency requires flexible and responsive assistance to accurately identify the strategic decisions to be made and the legal requirements to be complied with.
