The China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC) (simplified Chinese: 中国建筑集团有限公司; traditional Chinese: 中國建築集團有限公司; pinyin: Zhōngguó jiànzhú jítuán yǒuxiàn gōngsī) is the largest construction company in the world by revenue and the 14th largest general contractor in terms of overseas sales, as of 2016.[2][3][4]

While most of the assets of CSCEC were floated in the stock exchange as China State Construction Engineering Corporation Limited (CSCECL), CSCEC retained some assets such as schools and hospitals, as well as the stake in China Construction International Corporation (Chinese: 中国对外建设总公司) which was not able to be transferred. Thus, CSCEC granted the listed company supervising rights.[5]

Corporate Structure[edit]

The CSCEC has numerous branches or subsidiaries. It is divided into five main divisions and twelve traditional core business areas, including eight Group's engineering offices and four Design Institutes, as well as its own national research laboratory. The main business units of the group are planning and design, project development, equipment leasing, trade, construction and facilities management.

Its subsidiary and listed company, China State Construction Engineering Corporation Limited (CSCECL) (Chinese: 中国建筑股份有限公司) (SSE: 601668), was established in 2007. It was listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange in 2009 with its IPO price at RMB$4.18 per share. The shares closed at RMB$6.53, 56% higher than its IPO price, at the first trading day. It was the world's biggest IPO in 2009, raising the capital of US$7.3 billion.[6][7]


The CSCEC was founded in 1957 as a state company.[8][9] Early on the country had an international profile building heavy industry and infrastructure in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.[10] The predecessor company opened its first overseas office in Kuwait in the late 1970s.[11] The company broke from its regionally confined work pattern when it entered the U.S. market in 1985, opening an office in Atlanta.[10] The U.S. subsidiary began by building housing developments with joint venture partners before undertaking its first sole development, Lantana Lakes, a 107-acre, $27 million complex of 42 homes, in 1987 in Jacksonville, Florida.[10]

With the encouragement of the Chinese government and financing assistance from the Export-Import Bank of China, CSCEC has taken increasingly bold steps as a builder and investor of overseas projects. In 2011, the going abroad trend hit a new high when Baha Mar Resorts, a $3.4 billion casino and resort built and partially owned by CSCEC, opened after "extremely aggressive" efforts by the company to link with the Bahamas developer that started the project.[11] It was the largest construction project undertaken by a Chinese company outside of China.[11]

The China State Construction Engineering Corporation is also constructing the new Athletics and Football Stadium in Grenada.[12]

In 2009, the company was blacklisted for six years by the World Bank for collusion in the bidding process for the Philippines National Roads Improvement and Management Project.[13]
