I have chosen to deliver an analysis of a construction company while buildings and facilities surround us and are part of our daily lives. Every person is familiar with a new block of flats rising in front of his/her living, a neighbour renovating his apartment or even with his/ her own house renewal. As long as we exist, the construction domain will continue to develop because we all need places to stay and current utilities. We need to communicate with our relatives, friends or even visit new places, so we need roads and highways. We also like to live in a beautiful city with modern leisure centers and iconic buildings. For having all these, companies competent in building and installing have to exist.

One of these companies is SC SCIM SA (Constructions, Installations and Assembling Company), founded in Constanta, Romania. This is one of the major constructing enterprises in the area and handles significant projects. It is a medium sized company, having 110 employees.
