China’s construction industry has been a driving force in the country’s economy since the 80s, in particular, the majority of the projects have been developed on urban areas. This has caught the attention of foreign architecture and engineering companies which presence in the market has been growing at an unprecedent rate since the 90s.

Foreign architects and related guilds are reputed for quality and creativity and their opportunities usually lie in the commercial real estate sector since the residential property is still dominated by local architects.
