Joint Ventures in the Construction Industry Construction
The construction industry is constantly growing to meet the needs of the ever-evolving economy and world.  According to Dun & Bradstreet's First Research Industry Database, US corporate profits, an indicator of corporate demand for construction services, rose 3.7% in the first quarter of 2017 compared to the same period in 2016 and the value of US nonresidential construction spending, a demand indicator for builders, rose 2.0% year-to-date in May 2017 compared to the same period in 2016.  In order to compete, construction companies may specialize in a type of construction, region or even through the way in which they manage a project. Overall, companies are constantly exploring ways to take on new risks and challenges in order to find bigger and better projects. 

Joint ventures are becoming an increasingly common way that a construction company can meet the demands of a large or more complex project.  According to the Financial Accounting Standards Board, a joint venture is defined as an entity owned and operated by a small group of businesses (the joint ventures) as a separate and specific business or project for the mutual benefit of the members of the group.  These types of arrangements are beneficial for several reasons, such as to:
  • Share risks
  • Combine financial resources such as financing or bonding
  • Share skills such as engineering, design and construction
