A building presents a structure that has been made by man, and it has a roof and walls, and stands more or less permanently in one place, for example a house or a factory. There are numerous shapes, sizes and functions of a building, and throughout the history, they have been adapted for a wide number of factors, from the available building materials, weather conditions, land prices, terrain conditions, specific uses to aesthetic reasons. Buildings are made for several needs of society – primarily they are made as shelter from weather, living space, privacy, security, to store belongings, as well as for workinginside them and storing belongings. As a shelter, the building represents a physical separation the place of comfort and safety (the human habitat) and the place that is harsh and harmful ( the outside).

In general, there are three sectors of construction: buildings, infrastructure and industry.

Building construction is usually further divided into residential and non-residential.Infrastructure is often called a heavy/highway, heavy civil or heavy engineering, and includes large public works, dams, bridges, highways, water/wastewater and utility distribution.Industrial includes refineries, process chemical, power generation, mills and manufacturing plants.

Building construction is the process of adding structure to real property or construction of buildings. The vast majority of building construction jobs are small renovations, such as the addition of a room, or renovation of a bathroom. Often, the owner of the property acts as laborer, paymaster, and design team for the entire project. However, all building construction projects include some elements in common – design, financial, estimating and legal considerations. Many projects of varying sizes reach undesirable end results, such as structural collapse, cost overruns, and/or litigation. For this reason, those with experience in the field make detailed plans and maintain careful oversight during the project to ensure a positive outcome.

Commercial building construction is procured privately or publicly utilizing various delivery methodologies, including cost estimating, hard bid, negotiated price, traditional,management contracting, construction management-at-risk, design & build and design-build bridging. Residential construction practices, technologies,and resources must conform to local building authority regulations and codes of practice. Materials readily available in the area generally dictate the construction materials used.

Cost of construction on a per square basis for houses can vary dramatically based on site conditions, local regulations, economies of scale and the availability of skilled tradespeople. As residential construction can generate a lot of waste, careful planning again is needed here.
