Genetic algorithm (GA) is an example of evolutionary algorithms that are bio-inspired computational methods. GA has been applied to numerous fields. It has been applied in different aspects of construction and building but that is scarcely any review that documents it. The paper reviewed the application of GA in construction and building. It was revealed that energy management is the major area of application which are further subdivided into load scheduling, prediction, and optimization. Other nonenergy applications are pricing, environment, and construction design or real estate. The review presents research information to researchers. The information can assist in the optimization of construction processes which can reduce the construction time and costs, ensure optimal allocation and use of energy, prediction of energy demands and supply in houses and incorporation of sustainability in construction and management of real estate.
