Throughout history from the Great Wall of China, the Berlin Wall and even the construction of megalomanic structures, the construction industry has been greatly influenced by war. The objective of this is to identify the effect on the construction industry before, during and after a war. How it can affect the economy, labour pool, infrasturcture and the technological developments that took place indirectly or directly because of war and the structures that were built that still influence architecture and the entire built environment today and also the effect that war had on SA construction industry and the effect that a modern war would have on the industry.
