From airports to multi-unit dwellings, the construction industry is continually evolving. To help keep you ahead of trend as we wrap up 2013 we take a look at the construction outlook affecting you, from the new Melbourne Airport expansion to the three-year high in residential building approvals.

You can also read through some of the highlights from the ACIF Construction Market Report, featuring the latest industry forecasts, and hear about roofing and glazing systems from our exhibitor Palram Australia.

In each edition of Blueprint we're going to include a progress update on our brand new feature - Project Next. This engaging new feature will showcase the latest sustainable solutions for residential and commercial spaces in the largest fully integrated collaborative feature that the industry has ever seen. Each month we'll take a look at new exhibitors, products and applications, with insights from sustainability expert Cameron Rosen of Australian Living.
