The construction industry is one of the largest segments of business in the United States, with the percentage of the gross national product spent in construction over the last several years averaging about 10%. For 2001, the total amount spent on new construction contracts in the U.S. is estimated at $481 billion [ Engineering News Record, Nov. 19, 2001].

Of this total, about $214 billion is estimated for residential projects, $167 billion for nonresidential projects, and the rest for non building projects. Construction is the realization phase of the civil engineering process, following conception and design.
It is the role of the constructor to turn the ideas of the planner and the detailed plans of the designer into physical reality. The owner is the ultimate consumer of the product and is often the general public.
The Civil Engineering Handbook consists of 8 sections of more than 2000 pages of complete civil engineering encyclopedia.
