Construction is currently in a phase of expansion. Forecasts indicate that, by 2007, total construction in progress in China will have increased by over 10 percent. Other large Asian cities such as Hong Kong and Singapore are growing and new houses, office blocks and commercial buildings are springing up, even if they are far less high than the 101 floors of the world's tallest building, Taipei 101. Working closely with architects is crucial to ensuring that the right security systems are installed – and such specification work often leads directly to sales success.
