Construction

Construction is the process of creating and building infrastructure such as roads, bridges and railways or a facility such as a home, hospital or school. Construction starts with planning, design, and financing and continues until the project is built and ready for use. Normally, the job is managed by a project manager, and supervised by a construction manager, design engineer, construction engineer or project architect. Craft trades people such as bricklayers and joiners are essential to the construction sector.
