Ranked the second largest, construction industry accounts for nearly 11 % of India’s GDP and provides employment to a large cross section of people across the nation. On the journey to becoming the world’s largest construction market by 2025, diverse sectors that are the parts of the construction industry have started mushrooming across the country. Observing the mounting demand and complexities involved in execution of various construction projects, the industry demands a system in place adopting techniques of modern management along with a sound understanding of the design and construction process. Hence, the need for skilled construction project managers is vital to optimize the construction process at different stages.

When multiple factors loom large at the face of different construction players, management companies can be a blessing in disguise.
