What is Construction?
  • In the fields of architecture and civil
    engineering, construction is a process that
    consists of the building or assembling
    of infrastructure.
  • Far from being a single activity, large scale
    construction is a feat of human multitasking.
  • Normally, the job is managed by a project
    manager, and supervised by a construction
    manager, design engineer, construction
    engineer or project architect.

8
What is Construction?
  • In general, there are four types of construction
  • Residential Building construction
  • Industrial construction
  • Commercial Building construction
  • Heavy Civil construction
  • Each type of construction project requires a
    unique team to plan, design, construct and
    maintain the project.

9
Some Major Construction Projects in Singapore.
  • High-rise Buildings.
  • Bridges.
  • Expressways.
