There is much more to construction than meets the eye. Many people think it is just one company that goes in there and builds everything as well as drawing out the plans for the project. Of course this is not true, you in fact have multiple entities working together on the project and the teams must be coordinated in order for the project to get done correctly. You have people in charge of metal structuring, landscaping, and even asphalt repair that must be working in perfect harmony in order for the project to meet success.
Perhaps what is most appealing about working in construction is being able to see all of these moving parts at work and seeing how well people can coordinate when there is something important on the line. People will seldom put their goals aside for the betterment of the project, which works well for not only the structure being built, but for each of the companies as well.
What is truly amazing
Is how much people need to realize that construction is something that is not done overnight. That in order for these teams to work so closely together, that it must be realized that cooperation is above all else. From the first blueprints to the finished product, both back end and front end coordination must be at its best. Having been in the business for as long as I have, you begin to see what humans can accomplish when they work together. When the put the greater good above their individual needs.
The next time you see a construction project, think about just how much effort and coordination it takes to achieve it. That each individual cog in the wheel must know its place and that its independent success is crucial to the success of the other moving pieces.
