ABSTRACT
The article discusses the strong performance of the international construction market and offers insight on the top international contractors in 2005. Combined revenue from projects outside of the groups' home countries was $189.41 billion in 2005, up 13.1% over $167.49 billion in 2004. This high level of global activity is causing material price and personnel pressures, leading to subtle shifts in doing business.
