The construction industry is generally considered as being the world’s largest industrial employer. Estimates of its size and importance necessarily vary from country to country.

Construction is an important sector of the European industry, highly fragmented, and involves a majority of SMEs. The Construction industry is project centered and characterized by short-term partnering between non co-located teams with varying levels of process maturity and information and communication technologies’ capability. The industry is known for its conservative culture with a relatively high resistance to change. Although the larger industry players at the management level undertake construction internationally, the vast majority of work is done by local or national SMEs, often also under local building regulations and standards.
