Different Types of Construction and their Typical Timeline:

Construction is the process of systematic planning, designing, assembling, and building infrastructure using various materials and components. Labor is one of the other necessary elements required in construction i.e. having a model of the structure needed to be constructed.  Having different characteristics and features there are four main types of constructions all of these types have their own timeline or a protocol to follow for accurate construction.

  1. Residential Building Construction: 

As evident by the name, this construction involves manufacturing residential houses, repair, renovation, and remodeling for residents. It involves the construction of structures including apartments, dormitories, condominiums, cottages, etc.

Timeline: 

  1. Per-construction phase: The first thing you need to do before construction is to get the rights of a permit for the construction, complete overall planning, and manage finance.
  2. Preparing and laying the foundation: This includes removing unwanted materials like rocks, trees, etc. from the surface and leveling of the area of the construction site.
  3. Shaping the house and building roof:  Generally, it takes two months in this process.
  4. Finishing, wiring, and plumbing: After the structure is constructed, the wiring of the building and plumbing is installed.  
  5. Inside finishing: It gives shape to your house.
  6. Final finishing: It includes flooring, tiling, painting, and other remaining tasks, for Turing the building into a house. 
  1. Commercial Buildings Construction:

Commercial hubs, schools, shopping malls, sports complexes, hospitals, skyscrapers, etc. are constructed repaired, rebuilt, and maintained.  These structures are often managed by federal or local governments.

Timeline: 

  1. Knowing project phase: The phases are pre-construction, while construction and post-construction.
  2. Breaking down each phase: Project managers can easily manage the undertakings by breaking down each phase. 
  3. Establishing milestone deadline: By doing this project manager can easily handle each project within the deadline
  4. Communicate project plans:  Communication of project manager with all the personals is really crucial for the best work.
  5. Reviewing project schedule: Once the project begins the project manager checks and reviews the schedule for the adjustments.
  1. Industrial Constructions:

These constructions require a high level of skilled labor, technical skills, heavy planning, construction, and designing for building structures. Usually, here the construction of non-profitable industries takes place like; oil refinery, nuclear plants, power industries, petroleum industries, etc.   

Timeline: 

  1. Planning: Analyzing the site of the construction and making the geotechnical report and finding the cost analysis.
  2. Pre-Construction:  All the preparation regarding material, labor, and machinery before starting the project.
  3. Procurement: Buying the required material.
  4. Construction:  The starting of construction until the roof.
  5. Post-Constructing:  Double-checking and polishing to give a final touch-up.
  1. Infrastructure and Heavy Construction:

Large scale projects are counted as infrastructures. These include runways, railways, roads, bridges, paths, and all other mega structures that are in the public interest. They are managed and mentioned by governments or large corporations.

Timeline: 

  1. Planning: Analyzing the site of the construction and making the geotechnical report and finding the cost analysis by the government’s contractor.
  2. Pre-Construction:  All the preparation regarding material, labor, and machinery before starting the project.
  3. Procurement: Buying the required material by the government agencies.
  4. Construction:  From starting of construction till completing the structure.
  5. Post-Constructing:  Double-checking and polishing to give a final touch-up.

The process of these constructions varies accordingly. You should construct your project by taking the advice of an expert. Remember, for excellent construction, you need an experienced architect, a trustworthy contractor, a skilled builder, and an active project manager.
