New Construction

Does anyone know a good website that will give me a general idea of how buildings are constructed and inform me of common materials used in that construction? – Thanks. Well, I have your answer right here. Construction is a very broad term. The best way to learn about construction is to study the course of civil engineering. If studying is not feasible then you have to engage yourself in doing construction jobs. You can also search the word "construction" through the net or in this link: You can search word by word for you to understand the most common materials and here are my suggestions: 1. Concrete 2. Cement 3. Reinforcement bars 4. Foundation 5. Beams/Girders 6. Columns 7. Footings 8. Masonry block or concrete hollow/solid blocks 9. Carpentry 10. Paints 11. Aluminum cladding 12. Tiles 13. Screed 14. Structural steel frames 15. Balustrades/handrails 16. Formwork system 17. And more. .

    The best way to break down construction is by its assigned division number. Each section of construction is assigned a division, allowing others to organize and coordinate a job, in its entirety. Division 01 General Requirements (General over head, profit, travel, equipment)Division 02 Site Construction (earthwork)Division 03 ConcreteDivision 04 MasonryDivision 05 MetalsDivision 06 Wood and PlasticsDivision 07 Thermal and Moisture ProtectionDivision 08 Doors and WindowsDivision 09 FinishesDivision 10 SpecialtiesDivision 11 EquipmentDivision 12 FurnishingsDivision 13 Special ConstructionDivision 14 Conveying SystemsDivision 15 MechanicalDivision 16 ElectricalEach division can further be broken down into materials and labor required.
