Study Regarding the Efficiency Measure of Construction Firms from Western Europe
In this study we tried to capture the efficiency of the activity of constructions for the Western European countries, as well as the extent to which they were affected by the financial crisis. The premise of choosing companies with activities in construction is related to the fact that their efficiency is closely correlated with the evolution of economic activity in general, the construction sector being one of the most important sectors of the economy. The analysis revealed that these companies were strongly hit by the economic and financial problems in 2008, receiving the lowest scores of efficiency from the period studied. Also, it seems that their efforts to overcome a difficult period for any economic activity - namely those of making their activity more efficient, of increasing productivity, and restructuring costs - have resulted in the revival of the activity in constructions in 2009’s economy.
