Real Estate & Construction

Industry news and transformation

The real estate sector and by extension the construction sector in France has undergone significant transformation in recent years due to economic, technological and regulatory changes.

Increasing demand for housing and commercial buildings, improved access to information technology and changes in lifestyles have led to changes in customer needs.


Today, customers are demanding more personalised services, more sustainable and responsible management and more control over costs. To meet these demands, specialists in these fields must take initiatives to modernise their approaches and integrate new technologies, such as BIM (Building Information Modeling).


The sector is increasingly inclined to take environmental considerations into account in its practices. New buildings are being constructed to meet new energy and environmental standards, while environmentally responsible construction techniques and sustainable or bio-sourced materials are being promoted. Investors are also encouraged to look at investments in green real estate projects.


Overall, the sector continues to evolve, driven by innovation, technology and market demand. These changes require companies in the sector to continually adapt to keep up with customer demands and to meet the challenges posed by an ever-changing environment.

Challenges for leading professionals in the Real estate & Construction sectors

First, one of the main challenges is resource management. Real estate and construction professionals need to effectively manage human resources, including the recruitment of their talent. Indeed, the trend is towards a very strong candidate market and the subtleties of their expectations must be managed effectively.


Quality work on the employer brand has become an inevitable strategy.


It is also important to manage the financial and material aspects to optimise the profitability and perceived quality of projects. Managers in the sector must be able to reduce costs while maintaining a high level of service quality, which is a guarantee of loyalty.


Another important issue is the management of risks and contingencies. Professionals in the sector must be able to anticipate and manage the risks associated with their projects, particularly those relating to the environment and safety, which are high-stakes issues.
