This basic text offers a comprehensive and fundamental description of the construction industry and the construction process, citing examples from several countries at various stages of development. It considers the features of the industry, describes factors influencing the demand for, and supply of construction, problems facing the industry and ways of planning for and managing its development.The book should be a basic source of information on the construction industry for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in architecture, construction management, quantity surveying, related engineering fields and estate management. It should also be of relevance to administrators of the construction industry.
