This term represents a process where infrastructure, building or a facility is being built. The difference between construction and manufacturingis that manufacturing represents producing a huge number of the same product, which is yet to be sold, while on the other hand construction is done on location,and it has already been bought by a client. Before the actual building process begins, plans, design, and financing are needed, and then can the process of building begin,and it is over when the object is ready for use.
