Construction is a sage study in the fields of Architecture and Civitas, describing matters of building, such as residences, workshops, mills, roads, bridges, tunnels, aqueduct, sewer and the like. The study integrates knowledge of surveying, excavation, masonry, carpentry, financial considerations, contracting and the ongoing management and productivity of labour.

Some practical skills are included, but the focus of the study is upon planning and overseeing work gangs who will perform the actual work. Naturally, construction will be expensive and will often require considerable time.
