A building is a structure with a roof and walls that is mostly present permanently in one place. The construction process includes the planning, design and financing of the building project and continues until the building is built and ready for use.
Building construction also includes the process of adding structures to an already built property. The majority of construction jobs include small renovations to building structures such as adding an additional room or renovating a bathroom.
Builders are responsible for the day to day oversight of a construction site, management of vendors and trades, and the communication of information to all involved parties throughout the course of a building project.
