The history of humanity is the history of construction – based of course on architectual design. Ever since the dawn of civilizations mankind has been striving to build shelter from the elements, produce fortifications against their enemies, and erect monuments to worship their gods. That still holds true today- especially today.
In addition to residential home construction and renovation, commercial and government construction spending is projected to reach over $600 billion in the United States in 2013. In Canada, the construction industry accounts for over 12% of the nation’s GDP, monitoring nearly $3 trillion in assets. The construction industry is booming again in America, but it has also undergone fundamental changes. As a result of the residential construction collapse during the recession, businesses have diversified, increasingly focusing on specific subsectors. While some companies now target specialized project such as transportation, energy, or retail construction, others have recognized that construction has become an increasingly global enterprise, concentrating on developments abroad.
As the construction industry is going global, so is commercial architectural design. In the United States, architectural firms employ over 158,000. Most of these firms are small to medium sized enterprises. Sole architectual practitioners make up 26% of all registered businesses another 70% are firms with 2 to 49 employees. Only 1% of all architectural firms are considered “large firms” with over 100 employees, yet they account for more than 25% of all sales.
The challenge for construction and architectural firms that are entering the global market is to address the demands of varying foreign markets equally effectively. Regardless if you are looking to translate your Masterspec profile, enter an international tender, or file a building application, being able to flawlessly localize your projects is a precondition for a successful international operation. While most architecture firms cannot afford to have an in-house translation team; however, they can have all of the advantages of an in-house translation team without the substantial costs by contracting with an established, detail-oriented translation company.
