A construction project usually starts with a conceptual phase. In this phase, the idea of what you want to build comes together. It is followed by a design phase. The design phase involves a varied group of individuals, each with specific expertise, who put together specifications and blueprints for the project. The design team would also decide on the materials needed, project timeline, and material costs. The construction phase comes next and involves equipment, construction materials, and contractors. With larger sites, heavy machinery would be used. Common equipment on construction sites include hand-held tools (like shovels, hammers, and saws) and power tools (like drills, welding torches, and nail guns).
Heavy machinery may include cranes, earth-moving equipment like bulldozers and excavators, cement mixers, as well as trucks and haulers to transport materials.
