From Malls to Memorials
Construction is the building of the world in which we live. It involves more than homes, schools, businesses, factories, and other structures that provide shelter and places to work. Construction also includes the assembly of infrastructure that makes modern life possible. We need roads, sidewalks, bridges, electric power generating stations, lines to carry the electricity to consumers, telephone switching centers, underground pipes to carry drinking water and sewage, fiber optic cables for broadband Internet connections, and many other facilities. Construction begins with engineering design and its artistic compliment, architecture. It defines and defies the physical constraints or standards under which we limit or extend our vision of where we work, play, live and learn. Ohioans have truly paved the way to the future with construction innovations.
