Types Of constructions
Construction is defined as "a process that consists of the building or
assembling of infrastructure." On the other hand, a Construction Project
"includes all material and work necessary for the construction of a finished
structure for occupancy by End Customer. This includes site preparation,
foundations, mechanical, electrical work, and any other work necessary to
complete the project."
There are different types of construction projects:

Residential
Residential construction projects include houses, townhouses, apartments,
condominiums, cottages, single unit dwellings and subdivisions. The housing
designs are generally done by architects and engineers and the construction
is executed by builders who hire subcontractors for structural, electrical,
mechanical and other specialty work. This type of project must conform to
local building authority regulations and codes of practice. Many new builders
are attracted to residential projects because of its ease of entry in the real
estate market. This makes it a highly competitive market with potentially
high risks as well as high rewards.

Buildings
Building construction is perhaps the most popular type of construction
project. It is the process of adding structure to real property. Most of the
projects are room additions and small renovations. Most new building
construction projects are construction of sheltered enclosures with walk-in
access for the purpose of housing people, equipment, machinery or supplies.
It includes installation of utilities and equipment.

Institutional and Commercial


Institutional and commercial building construction covers a great variety of
project types and sizes such as hospitals and clinics, schools and
universities, sports facilities and stadiums, large shopping centers and retail
chain stores, light manufacturing plants and warehouses and skyscrapers for
offices and hotels. Specialty architects and engineers are often hired for
designing a particular type of building. This market segment has few
competitors because of the high costs and greater sophistication of
institutional and commercial buildings as compared to residential
construction projects.

Industrial
Industrial construction is only a small part of the whole construction industry
nevertheless it is a very important part of the industry. These projects are
generally owned by big, for-profit industrial corporations such as
manufacturing, power generation, medicine, petroleum, etc.

Specialized Industrial Construction


This type of construction project usually involves very large scale projects
with a high degree of technological complexity such as nuclear power plants,
chemical processing plants, steel mills and oil refineries.

Highway Construction
Highway construction involves the construction, alteration, or repair of roads,
highways, streets, alleys, runways, paths, parking areas, etc. It includes all
incidental construction in conjunction with the highway construction project.

Heavy Construction
Heavy construction projects usually involve projects that are not properly
classified as either "building" or "highway." Examples of this type of project
would be: water and sewer line projects, dams, sewage treatment plants and
facilities, flood control projects, dredging projects, and water treatment
plants and facilities.
