Philanthropic construction adopts an accessible approach

Implications - As consumer demand for corporate social good increases with the rise of Millennial and Gen Z power, construction companies are leveraging their ingenuity to create much needed refuge in developing countries. Architectural projects in these zones demonstrate creativity and adaptability from companies that challenge themselves to build fast, safe and low-cost buildings that, in turn, go a long way towards bringing awareness as well as relief to communities globally.
Workshop Question - How are you responding to the consumer demand for a more socially conscious approach to business?
