The purpose of the work is to try to find the answer to the issue in the title. In the paper the examples of structures built underground, which are usually erected on the surface, are presented. These include residential houses and factories. An unusual location is a great challenge for designers and contractors, but it can bring huge benefits. One of them is an increase in the energy efficiency of the building. The basis for the decision to choose an underground construction must be an analysis of the benefits, disadvantages and risks associated with this type of facilities carried out for individual cases.
