Different Types Of Construction Projects

Once you step out of your home and into the streets, you will see construction projects happening on every corner. If you have a curious mind then you would wonder as to what type of building projects they are and how they can be categorized into different areas. Like any other aspect of things, there is no way one to building and thus has several categories, that come with a different set of rules and regulations, and standard norms. Given below are different types of building projects.

Private projects

These projects are those that are owned and controlled by any private individual or group. These private individuals and groups could include, homeowner’s, different businesses, schools and hospitals, simply put it is the ownership of anyone and everyone that has nothing to do with the government. These private projects can be categorised into three. They are residential, commercial and industrial construction. A building project is considered residential if it includes a single family, although if you are building an apartment complex then it is considered a commercial build as opposed to a residential one. Commercial builds also include, shopping malls, hospital, restaurants and so on. Industrials build on the other hand, include the construction of power and solar plants, and it has not be mentioned that commercial and industrial are usually interchangeable when addressing certain projects.

State projects

Thought the term includes the word ‘state’ in it, that does not mean it’s a build financed by a certain city or county. What the word state signifies is the fact that all builds that are funded by the government and has nothing to do with being federal is known as state projects. These projects include the usual sophisticated builds of infrastructure, for instance, highway and road construction, and building of sewer lines.

Federal projects

Federal projects are rather similar to the road construction and highway projects of the state. These projects are too of the traditional kind and is extremely complicated and involves a lot of authority. Some projects include the building of courthouses, and government buildings. The difference between a state and a federal project does not depend on who spends or rather funds it, but it merely depends on who owns and controls it.

With the different types of projects, it is necessary to know how they vary and how rules and regulations and certain laws impact the build depending on the type of project. Depending on the type of project it has to be clear that the laws are extremely different. The laws that affect the labor, the rules of contracting are a few things that are going to differ from project to project.

Before you get yourself into any kind of legal trouble make sure you understand what type of building project you have started and what implications come with it.
