Summary: In construction companies that are quit specific sociotechnic systems a princip of social determinisam is dominated, so the techno-technological and partly economical aspects are present, when social and sociological aspects of of this system is unknown. Becouse in last few dekades industrialisation has been introdeced in construction industy, that was in other kindes of industry happened much earlier, character of this process is probably same or similar like that pushed numerious of research at the beginning of this century. This hypothesis has to be verificated theoreticaly and empiricaly, so it could be possible to give sugestions and solutions that are olready proofed in the industry, including adequate modifications that could be possible to apply ijn practice.

Keywords: technology, organisation, sociotechical system, industrial technology, motivation, centralisation, working groups

Research goals: Construction companies is in theory treated same like in the practice exclusively like technologiocal and economical system, when its social aspect is neglected. In the recent time of technological and social changes are present in civil engineering this is not adequate any more. Therefore it is the latest moment that the social aspects of these process start to be respected, based on the most succesfule theoretical and practical solutions that ware applied from the breaking of Taylorisam (technological determinisam) to the system theory. It would be unsenseble to loose the oportunity to apply the solutions olready proofed in the practice, respected its specifics. Such questions and solutions has to become a integral part and objective of civil engineering education, but also integral part of each profesional expertise that relates with this time construction company activities.
