About the Blog

This blog is interested in the organisation of the building and construction industry and its role in the creation of the built environment.

Like many industries, construction is being reshaped by rapid and widespread advances in materials, technology and capability. The blog collects 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.
