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.
The person who is in charge of this process is the project manager, while the construction manager, design engineer, and construction engineer, are there to supervise the whole process.In order for a construction project to be successful, effective planning is of utmost importance. A lot of factors have to be considered before the project starts, that amongst other things includes the requirements of the particular area, the impact that the project will leave on the environment, well planned scheduling, creating a sustainable budget,safety of the construction site, will the required materials be available, and can they be transported to the building site, logistics, and so on.
