Engineering and construction industry 2022
The engineering and construction industry has made a significant recovery from the 2020 recession, but it has also experienced multiple headwinds that are expected to persist. 2022 should be another rewarding—but challenging—year, and the industry looks to be poised to capture growth opportunities.
Supporting the nation's growth
The 2020 recession was among the shortest ever, but its impact continues to be observed across both the larger US economy and the engineering and construction (E&C) industry.
In 2022, as we move into the second year of recovery, the industry has a big role in supporting the nation’s growth plan. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), with investments across health care, public safety, and other public infrastructure, is expected to bode well for the E&C firms and is likely to accelerate recovery across the nonresidential segment. The residential segment is expected to stay strong and exhibit similar activity as it did in 2021.
The industry has increased its investments in digital, including through mergers and acquisitions (M&A), as it prepares to shift toward connected construction capabilities. These technologies can help E&C firms support initiatives such as smart cities, urban air mobility, and climate change programs and help enhance internal operational efficiencies, reduce costs, and improve margins. 2022 is likely to be an exciting year for the engineering and construction industry, and our annual outlook explores five key themes to watch closely.
Architectural technical drawing 2022
Architectural drawings can be classified as technical drawings, digital software modeling or drawings and hand-drawn sketches. In this article, we will give you some basic advice to improve all architectural drawing skills.
First of all, every architect should have a sketchbook and a habit of thinking with sketches. Developing your sketching skills is directly proportional to the time you spend with pen and paper. Sketching is drawing what you think on paper, over time your ideas and drawings will develop at the same time. If you want to make better sketches, you can examine examples of sketches from famous architects and analyze how their ideas and sketches relate. Start by getting yourself some cute markers and drawing pens and a sketchbook with qualified papers.
