Abstract

The construction industry is one of the major contributors to the economy development of any country, hence, the need to investigate new technological ways that will ensure the growth and development of the industry. Using existing literature materials, the adoption of nanotechnology as a technological method for construction materials were examined. It was observed that the adoption of nanotechnology can aid new building typologies and opportunities for sustainable use of construction materials for the achievement of sustainable developments in architecture, engineering and construction projects.
