The recent recession presented the building and construction sector with significant challenges. By aligning our services to the new market conditions created by the downturn, KPMG is committed to working with our clients in meeting the challenges involved in building and construction activities.


As liquidity pressures ease following the recession, other considerations like climate change, sustainability issues and the transforming nature of the information economy will affect the future value of investments in construction and dictate which areas will drive growth.
