The construction industry is very large by any standard, and it can be described and defined in a
number of different ways. This chapter will begin to characterize the industry in terms of its size
and economic impact, and will proceed to define by name and by function some of the practitioners
who perform their professional work in the industry. Also to be examined are terminology relative to
types of contracts, public and private; single and separate contracts; competitive bid and negotiated
contract formation; different project delivery methods; different types of construction contractors; and
various types or categories of construction projects. All of these are vantage points from which the
construction industry can be observed, and all of these terms provide descriptors for various aspects
of the professional practice of construction contracting in the industry.
