Currently there is a trend in construction, which is at its peak, vertical building, as its name suggests, is simply building buildings of large dimensions in height, which use hydraulic elements inside to make it more functional for users, such as elevators.

Despite the fact that this type of building was already present since the 70s, in recent years it has become a matter of greater importance, due to the need to preserve green spaces.

One of the disadvantages in the case of condominiums is that you cannot have a patio, there is less privacy and less space.

The more the world develops, there is a great scarcity of land, this as a consequence of the boom in the construction of houses, shopping centers, among others.

Another reason why vertical construction has occurred is due to the increase in the price of residential houses, since today, due to the lifestyle, it is more practical and easier to get an apartment.

Once we have shown you a series of factors that pushed this style of construction, we will mention the main 5 advantages of developing it:

1. Saving:

One of the most notorious advantages is savings, the fact that these buildings are built in urban areas means that users can have their jobs or schools closer to them, which is summarized in saving time and transportation costs.

Therefore, noise and environmental pollution due to the emission of means of transport and the constant flow of traffic are minimized.

Although it is more expensive to build vertically, it allows this to be transferred to the consumer, since, in the long term, it provides considerable savings in infrastructure, water services, maintenance, surveillance, garbage collection, sewerage, public lighting and road paving.

According to data from the National Commission for the Promotion of Housing (Conafovi), vertical housing decreases public spending costs by up to 70 percent.

2. Ecology:

The accelerated rate of horizontal growth in cities has caused great damage to the environment, for this reason today the use of vertical construction is preferred to readjust society and avoid such damage. The urgency of preserving the green areas on the periphery of some cities has forced many places to reach the heights.

3. Quality of life:

Vertical housing constructions are considered as a strong strategy to improve the life of citizens in general. This concept of life refers to all facets of the human being to satisfy their material, psychological, social and economic needs.

4. Access practicality:

This construction model will always seek to be in the urban sprawl, this in order to supply the largest number of users in a single sector and provide it with added value, always with easy access to public services.

For example, the proximity to workplaces, schools, banking institutions, recreation centers, among others, all of the above is one of the characteristics that they consider most important when choosing a place designed vertically.

5. Modernity:

Last but not least, there is modernity and the lifestyle of current generations, which has changed, changing priorities, since today’s needs are no longer the same as 30 years ago. Families today are less numerous and these vertical housing models adapt perfectly to their family dynamics and are taken as a trend for modern society.

Due to the great relevance that this type of vertical construction currently has and despite the fact that its line of business is industrial construction, at Global Engineering Group, we have building specialists in this branch, in order to adapt to the constant change of society. and with that, build according to the needs of the users, always hand in hand with the new trends.
