Careers In Construction
There are several careers in construction to choose between. When many think
of a career in construction, they envision an extremely laborious occupation
building roadways and buildings. On the other hand, many jobs in construction
are not hands-on. Prior to a building or home being constructed, floor plans
must be designed and the construction site prepared.
Those working behind the scenes in construction include the architect and
surveyor. If you were to drive around your local area, you will likely observe
a construction in progress. Many view the actually construction crew as the
real miracle workers. Although plans and designs must be put into place by
designers, construction workers are the ones who must work a laborious job
in all weather conditions, often times with little pay.
Architecture is an exciting career in construction, especially for someone
who enjoys designing buildings. Architectures can either design commercial
structures or residential structures. It takes skills and training to become
an architect. This occupation requires a college degree, and in most cases,
the student must perform well in math. When drafting a building, architects
must be able to design a floor plan that is accurate in size and elevation.
Surveyor is another career in construction. The job of a surveyor is to measure
and map out the earths surface. Prior to constructing a building or residential
home, the land must be surveyed. In fact, surveyors perform the first step
in land development. Once the land is surveyed, a surveyor will write a description
of the land to determine whether it is a feasible construction site. Surveyors
work a typical 40 hour work week. However, the nature of their job requires
them to spend a lot of time outdoors. Field work may require them to stand
for long periods or walk a great distance. In many cases, they perform field
work in unfavorable weather conditions.
