IF I HAD A HAMMER…

  • A WORD FROM “THE MAN”

    The construction sector comprises establishments primarily engaged in the construction of buildings or engineering projects (e.g., highways and utility systems). Activities of these establishments generally are managed at a fixed place of business, but they usually perform construction activities at multiple project sites. There are substantial differences in the types of equipment, work force skills, and other inputs required by establishments in this sector. To highlight these differences and variations in the underlying production functions, this sector is divided into three subsectors.

    Subsector 236

    Construction of Buildings, comprises establishments of the general contractor type and operative builders involved in the construction of buildings.

    Subsector 238

    Speciality Trade Contractors, comprises establishments engaged in specialty trade activities generally needed in the construction of all types of buildings.

    Subsector 237

    Heavy and Civil Engineering Construction, comprises establishments involved in the construction of engineering projects.
