Welcome To the European Construction Forum

"Did you know that 1 person working in the construction industry ≈ 2 further persons working in other sectors* ?" (mutillier effect *source: Study for the EU Commission-DG EMPL 'Monitoring of sectoral employment')
The construction sector is essential to the functioning of society, underpinning virtually every element of our lives. It provides the physical infrastructure in which we live, work and socialise – our homes, our schools, our workplaces, our hospitals, our roads, and our services infrastructure.
Despite the impact of the economic downturn, the contribution of construction related activities in Europe is significant.  On average, the construction sector accounts for approximately 10% of European Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and about 7% of all employment, representing approximately 30% of industrial employment.
