Construction industry accounts for around one-tenth of the world’s gross domestic product, seven percent of employment, half of all resource usage and up to 40 percent of energy consumption. This industry has a real impact on our daily lives: the buildings we live and work in, the roads and bridges we drive on, the utility distributions systems we use, the railways, airports and harbors we travel and trade from are all products of this billion dollar industry.

Prosperity of the industry depends upon the capacity to evolve on business, technological and environmental fronts.
