Abstract

The engineering & construction (E&C) industry strongly affects the economy, the environment, and society. It touches the daily lives of everyone, as quality of life is heavily influenced by the built environment surrounding people. The construction industry serves almost all other industries, as great economic value creation occurs within or by means of buildings or other “constructed assets.” As an industry, moreover, it accounts for 6% of global gross domestic product (GDP) (Renz & Solas, 2016).
