Make sure you've finished up all of the odd jobs before giving your cleaner the go-ahead
Towards the very end of any renovation project, most people will realise that there are several small jobs that need to be done in order to finish off the renovations. These might include adding an extra piece of wood to a skirting board that is a little too short for the wall it's attached to or adding a bit of extra grouting to the floor so that the grouted lines are flush with the new tiles.
Building and construction have come a long way. There was a time when it was believed that asbestos was the best additive to construction materials such as tiles, pipes and roofing materials. The qualities that made asbestos so popular include the fact that it is fire-resistant, has high tensile strength and can make the most durable construction materials. The problem arose when people started reporting sickness, and research connected some illnesses to asbestos poisoning.
Civil construction involves the construction of infrastructures such as roads, tunnels, railway lines and bridges. Read this article for some civil construction safety tips.
Conduct an initial survey to understand site conditions that might affect the construction process. For instance, you may require local council documents to ensure the site does not have toxic minerals or dangerous materials such as asbestos.

When you are creating any product, then you could choose to build with stone, concrete, brick or wood. The choice you make will depend on a lot of factors including the nature of the product and how you will use it.

If you choose to work with concrete or brick, then you may need to bring in heavy machinery or purchase tools to carry out your work.
Hello, my name is Wendy and this is my construction blog. I do not work in the construction industry myself, but I have spent the last 7 months of my life with construction workers and contractors as they designed and built an extension to my property. I had always dreamed of extending my home so we could enlarge the kitchen and have an additional bedroom on the second-floor. My husband always objected, but when I won some money on the lotto, he couldn't stop me. The contractors were really great and I got a real insight into the industry so I decided to start this blog.
