Construction Job Description
Do you realize just how many job opportunities there are in the construction industry? Many of us think this industry is confined to bricklayers and roofers but construction is home to far more skilled tradesmen and professionals than that.
Let's start with the professionals. These are often involved at the beginning of any project. An architect will draw up plans for the building and oversee its construction, adapting their designs as they do so. Surveyors are a type of engineer who will determine the boundaries and elevation of the land and any structures to be built on the land. And then there are estimators who compute the cost of all the work to be done.
Once they've done their jobs, the tradesmen get to work. Along with the bricklayers, there are crane operators; heating and frost insulators; heavy equipment mechanics and operators; and heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration mechanics.
And that's not all. Electricians need to wire the entire building to make it fit for purpose. Cabinetmakers and carpenters must fit doors, skirting boards and other features. Plumbers have to install a reliable water supply as well as toilets and sinks.
As if that weren't enough professionals and tradesmen to have involved in any one job, there are many more. There's the gasfitter and the ironworker. There's the landscaper who must design the gardens. There's the plasterer and dry-waller who makes sure that the walls are finished off to the correct standard. And there's the painter and decorator who then ensures that those same walls are painted or papered in colours or patterns that will please the people who will eventually inhabit or make use of the building.
This should give you some idea of the range of professionals and tradesmen now working in the construction industry. And there are still more that haven't been mentioned - from concrete finishers, cribbers and framers to sheet metal workers, tile setters and welders.
Construction is a varied industry, offering a wide variety of job opportunities. There are openings for those with experience as tradesmen as well as qualified professionals. Check it out for yourself.
