Frameworks for analysing international construction
AbstractThe international construction market is subject to many dynamic influences that can lead to changes in the volume, mix and distribution of demand and sources of competitiveness. The international construction firm faces several problems: physical, technological, financial, legal, socio-cultural and political. It is important that factors that contribute to the success of firms in this market are clearly understood. This paper considers relevant aspects of international construction. The international performance of construction firms in middle- and low-income countries is compared. The applicability of various analytical frameworks to international construction is then examined. Finally, the implications for future research are considered.
