Construction Terms

In the construction sector, there are many different types of people who each have their own distinct skill sets, understandings, and vocabularies. 

Each trade and person in the construction industry uses a distinct set of ‘terms’ for their duties, activities and what has to be accomplished. 

Like all languages, construction terminology change throughout time. However, the typical building words that are used across the world are constantly evolving.

Construction Equipment

Equipment, machines, buildings, scaffolding, materials, tools, supplies, and systems owned, rented, or leased by the Contractor or its Subcontractors for use in carrying out the Work but not intended for inclusion into the Project.

Construction Materials

The Contractor or a subcontractor brings an object, material, or supply to the construction site for integration into the building or job. A preassembled object delivered to the site from items, materials, or supplies is also included in the definition.

Construction Methodologies

Construction methodology, also known as project execution methodology, refers to the planned technique of construction that takes into consideration all legal and contractual requirements, construction restrictions, risks, and opportunities.
