CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY

There are three sectors of construction: buildings, infrastructure and industrial

BUILDINGS CONSTRUCTION

Residential

The first type of construction is residential housing construction which involves building, repairing, and remodelling of structures for the purpose of housing people, supplies, or equipment. It includes apartments, town homes, condos, nursing homes, dormitories, etc. Also, garages and outbuildings like utility sheds are considered as residential constructions. As mentioned above, residential construction also involves repair and installation of utilities like water as electricity around the structure.

Non Residential (Institutional and Commercial)

This type of construction encompasses projects schools, sports arenas, shopping centres, hospitals, stadiums, retail stores, high-rise condos and office towers, libraries, art galleries and museums. Like the residential housing construction, institutional and commercial building involves both putting up of new structures and repair and maintenance of existing structures. Typically, a project like a retail store is usually commissioned by a company or private owner. Other projects such as stadiums, schools, and medical facilities are often paid for and managed by both the local and national government.

INFRASTRUCTURE CONSTRUCTION

This type of construction encompasses building and upgrading of railways, airports, communications, roads and railways to the surroundings of a city or existing building construction. This type of construction usually done due to the public interest and is often executed by government agencies and large private corporations.

Some other projects that fall under this type of construction include tunnels, bridges, highways, transit systems, drainage systems, and pipelines.

 

INDUSTRIAL CONSTRUCTION

This type of construction is specialized industrial construction which entails building structures that require a high level of specialization as well as technical skills in planning, construction, and design. Typically, this type of construction is carried out by industrial corporations for-profit. For instance, a chemical industry can build oil refineries, and power generation industry can build structures nuclear power plants and hydroelectric power plants, which are examples of specialized industrial constructions.

 

CONSTRUCTION MACHINERY

Earth Moving equipment

Heavy equipment is essential for construction jobs of almost any size, from home building to large-scale commercial and civil projects. Earth-moving equipment covers a broad range of machines that can excavate and grade soil and rock, along with other jobs.

Earthmovers and other heavy equipment help to speed not only earthwork but also materials handling, demolition, and construction. Many types of heavy construction equipment are designed for multiple functions, making them indispensable on job sites.

  • Excavators
  • Graders
  • Loaders
  • Skid loader
  • Crawler loaders
  • Backhoe
  • Bulldozers
  • Trenchers
  • Scrapers
  • Wheeled loading shovels

Construction vehicles

  • Tippers
  • Dumpers
  • Trailers
  • Tankers

Material handling equipment

There’s plenty of situations where it’s critical to move large and often heavy materials in a production environment. Any piece of equipment that helps with this process could be labeled ‘material handling equipment’.

Plenty of items fall under this definition, from tools and storage units to vehicles and major appliances. Anything that deals with the transportation, storage, and control at any stage of the processing of materials can be classified as material handling equipment.

  • Crane
  • Conveyors
  • Hoists
  • ForkLifts

Construction equipment

Construction equipment refers to heavy-duty vehicles, specially designed for executing construction tasks, most frequently ones involving earthwork operations. They are also known as heavy machines, heavy trucks, construction equipment, engineering equipment, heavy vehicles, or heavy hydraulics.

They usually comprise five equipment systems: implement, traction, structure, power train, control, and information. Heavy equipment functions through the mechanical advantage of a simple machine, the ratio between the input force applied and force exerted is multiplied. Some equipment uses hydraulic drives as a primary source of motion.

  • Concrete Mixture
  • Compactors
  • Pavers
  • Road Rollers
  • Tunneling Equipment
  • Road Headers
  • Tunnel Boring Machines (TBM)
