Challenges Facing The Construction and Engineering Industry

Following the downturn of the global economy, there are a number of key issues and challenges facing the Construction and Engineering Industry. 


Margins being increasingly squeezed

With pressure on public spending and private firms looking to cut costs, clients around the globe are seeking lower priced contracts.

The shortage of highly skilled project leaders

A successful project leader can bring a contract in on time, on budget, with minimised disruption and reduced risk of penalties or litigation. Just one poorly managed project has the potential to wipe out the profit of other successful contracts.

Decreased demand in many important sectors

Companies now need to consider diversifying and pushing into other niche markets to compete with the global construction giants.

The need to compete on a global scale

Pushing into emerging markets requires successful project management, global team leadership and innovative problem solving to cope with local challenges.

Cost reducing strategies are at the forefront of every project
