Description

As Construction Management students we are interested in what are some key elements that make a construction company successful. We feel this is important because we will eventually be working in the industry and knowing these key elements can help us with our careers. Our plan is to contact a few of the top General Contractors in Minnesota and find out the different techniques they use, such as: software, management techniques, scheduling, company tactics, and asset management. After contacting the companies we will compare the results and come up with key elements that help make a construction company successful. We feel this research will help all construction management students because it can give them a good outlook on what kind of company to look for when job or internship searching.
