"This volume collates the papers of an international conference that brought 17 scholars together in Berlin. They gave papers organised in four thematic sessions that explored Construction and Economic Theory (I); Building Materials and the Logistics of Construction (II); Economics of the Building Process (III); and The Socio-Economic Impact of Construction (IV). Not all scholars, who presented their research at the conference, could contribute to this volume, for various reasons."
