A BLOG ABOUT THE STRUCTURE AND PERFORMANCE OF THE BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY
Available from Amazon
About the Blog
The organisation of the building and construction industry and its role in the creation and maintenance of the built environment is the focus of this blog.
Like other industries, construction is being reshaped by rapid and widespread advances in materials, technology and capability. How those advances might affect an industry that has changed slowly over time is an interesting question.The blog collects industry data and discusses these trends and their effect on industry structure and performance.
The economic perspective focuses on firms and industries rather than individual projects.
