For a developing country like Philippines, the building and construction industry is surely one of the most booming business sectors. Every year, an increasing number of buildings, establishments, public works and whatnot are being built throughout the country. There are a lot of established construction firms that handles various civil engineering and architecture projects.

Civil engineering works deals with the design, construction and maintenance of a physical environment which includes buildings, infrastructures, public works, bridges, etc. Architecture works on the other hand is both the process and end result of planning, designing and building. Construction projects are usually faceted into many different aspects that is handled by a project manager, architect, structural engineer, construction manager, etc.

Construction is the process of building or assembling an infrastructure in a certain area or land. In general, there are different types of construction: Building Construction, Heavy/Civil Construction and Industrial Construction.

Building Construction is the process of adding a structure into a real property. It can be a commercial or a residential building.

  3. Thanks for sharing this. This a good source of information about construction industry in the Philippines. I learned so much from here, I read the responsibilities between engineer and architect. It's a big help if I choose the right company, Topnotch Construction

  4. Indeed, there are lot of buildings even construction projects here in the Philippines have been made and being put up already. However, one of the greatest concern now for the filipinos (if not all) is the actual cost vs project cost of each projects. I hope that there will be no more issues like Binay building issues would occur in the future.

  5. Sounds fairly similar to America's construction site cleanup procedures.

  6. For me, after renovating your house, you should buy some good furniture, like, for example bespoke kitchens in aberdeen ;)
