A construction business is a type of business that is involved in the building, remodeling, and maintenance of structures, roads, and other physical infrastructure. Construction businesses can range in size from small local contractors to large, multinational firms.

The different types of construction businesses include general contractors, who are responsible for overseeing all aspects of a construction project; specialty contractors, who focus on specific trades such as HVAC, plumbing, and electrical; and subcontractors, who are hired by general contractors to perform specific tasks.

Construction businesses benefit society by providing jobs and contributing to economic growth. They also create improved infrastructure, such as roads, bridges, and buildings, that are essential for a society’s productivity and quality of life. Construction businesses also help to improve the environment, as they are often involved in projects that help conserve energy and resources.
