Building materials are used in the construction industry to create structures and buildings. Materials and products fall into many categories which are used by architects and construction project managers to specify the materials and methods used for building job projects. Some building materials like cold rolled steel framing are considered modern methods of construction, over the traditionally slower methods like timber and brick and blockwork. Building materials companies can be very sensitive to economic fluctuations. To remain competitive, businesses are required to continually streamline and monitor processes and the bottom line. Building material companies have a strong project-orientation with a unique combination of in-house production and on-site mounting that requires intricate plans.
