Works to do Before Starting Building Construction


Clean the construction area. If there is any tree in the buildup area, un-rooted them completely and remove from the plot area.


If there is any hole in the ground fill up that properly. Remove excess soil from the plot or fill up the plot by imported soil to take the ground to desired level, if required.


Plot area is cleaned and levelled. It is time to secure the plot area. It can be done by making permanent boundary wall or temporary fencing around plot. Temporary fencing is the more common way. Builder logo or company logo can be setup with fencing for branding. Also, safety signboard can be attached with fence.

Site office:

Site office can be temporary or fixed depending on situation. If there is any driver’s waiting room or visitor’s waiting room or guest waiting room to build later then build that first to use as site office. But that is exceptional. You should make a toilet which is separated from labour’s toilet as you will have many vip clients and visitors during construction period.


The most essential thing in any construction site is store. To keep safe various building materials from un-wanted damage or stolen, make a store before starting construction. Make a separate store for cement because that are huge quantities and that are quickly affected by weathering impact. So the cement store should be protected from weather effect, especially from water.

Labour shed:

Workers, who work in the construction project stay at site. For them a shed should be made at site with essential facilities like water and power supply and sanitation. Some construction companies have permanent labour accommodation, so they don’t need to make shed at site.

Utility connection:

As civil construction needs continuous power and water supply, so ensure them first. For water supply, you can connect to city’s water supply line, or you can install a deep tubewell. For electricity connection, connect to city’s power supply line, or you can keep a generator at site.

One thing should be remembered during placing toilet. Footing of structure often extend beyond floor area. So during placing toilet, consider footing location so that you don’t have to face problem during footing work.
