Because of the compact nature of the Romanian construction industry and the scarcity of required resources a level of resource control unknown in the United States is both possible and necessary. The structure of the Romanian construction industry is examined and interesting parallels between Romanian and American practice are presented. In particular, contracting procedures as well as the use of incentive programs to increase productivity are described. The Romanian construction management and contracting approach offers interesting insights into the construction process as organized in the socialist states of Eastern Europe.
