With rapid population growth and increased demand for resources being two of the major challenges the construction industry is currently facing, PlanBEE student Will Marshall takes a look at how Hyperloop could potentially revolutionise the way we live, work and travel. In part two, he looks at what’s being developed and the challenges those developers face.
Arguably the biggest external factor influencing the construction industry is the world’s rising population. A recent World Economic Forum publication on the future of construction reported that the population of the world’s urban areas is increasing by 200 000 people per day.
With rapid population growth and increased demand for resources being two of the major challenges the construction industry is currently facing, PlanBEE student Will Marshall takes a look at how Hyperloop could potentially revolutionise the way we live, work and travel.
