An Analysis of the Construction Industry Structure in India

The Indian construction industry has had poor performance delivering on time, with quality and within cost.  Project cost and time deviations have been documented at 25%.  The paper introduces the utilization of the Construction Industry Structure model to identify the problem, the solution, and how the paradigm of the Indian industry must be changed.  Instead of using peer review to determine the validity of the explanation, the authors will use observable deductive logic to validate their proposal. The success of the explanation is not peer review, but Indian academic/research unit adopting the explanation and running research tests with the construction industry participants.  The CIS proposal to the industry is to replace the management, direction and control of personnel and vendors with a transparent system of metrics and utilizing the expertise of the experts in the beginning of the project.
