This course presents a brief introduction to the construction industry. Construction is indeed one of the most important Industries on earth dating backing to the beginning of civilizations. The evidence is all around us, serving as witnesses to the ingenuity of man. Relics of the construction prowess of ancient civilizations are dotted all across the modern world in Asia, America, Europe, Africa, South America, and many other regions. Some famous examples of these include the Pyramids of Egypt, the Taj Mahal of India, Roman Amphitheatres of Italy, and the Great Wall of China.
Modern construction has evolved from simple manual techniques into a complex maze of a highly mechanized and orchestrated symphony of activities, which requires billions of dollars in investment and serving as the second biggest source of employment in the world. Construction involves many field activities requiring the use of resources such as land, construction materials, labor, equipment, and energy, etc., to achieve a pre-defined object of putting up structures such as roads, buildings, dams, and just about any imaginable structure you find around you.
Due to limited and very costly resources, construction has to be managed productively and efficiently using innovation, creativity and sound organizational and economic principles. When construction projects are properly managed, the result is lower costs, completion of projects on time, and higher quality structures.
In order to construct a successful organizational model for a successful construction project, it is important to study and understand the various components that make up a successful model. Construction activities must be cost-effective using high-quality material and performed within a limited time frame to achieve quality end products.
The face of the construction industry has been changing rapidly in recent times. These advancements in modern construction methodologies and techniques, as well as, the emergence of more productive equipment means that industry players must remain on their toes to keep up with the latest construction technology. In order to remain relevant, companies must adopt new approaches to managing and building projects. Growth in technology means that there are new and better materials to use, newer techniques of accomplishing tasks at lower costs and better time management skills, and newer equipment for more productive work, etc. Therefore, human resource capacity must constantly update or upgrade their knowledge and skills.
