The construction industry has changed in its complexity over time.
However, the primary objective of the industry is basically the same as
it was 100 years ago: to build communities, roads, schools, homes,
businesses, and hospitals. In 2007 approximately $2 trillion was spent
in the construction industry. A unique project-delivery system is the
cornerstone of the construction industry. The industry is fragmented
and distinguished by a collection of large and small firms, related bulk
material suppliers, and many other support professionals. The typical
supply chain for any given construction project could include architects
and engineers, prime contractors, specialty subcontractors, and
material suppliers that come together one time to build a single project
for a specific owner
