The Prologue:

While moving around in your neighborhood you invariably come across a plot which is enclosed on all sides with tall iron sheets.There would be a temporary gate  in the front and ,occasionally you can see big trucks plying in & out of this gate.

This is how a construction site appears   from a outside

After a few months of  clandestine looking activities, you would observe the columns growing out from the land.

The building is growing gradually to attain great heights in due course.

First let us see : Who does what ?

A building is a product of synergy.So many agencies are involved , directly or indirectly , in such a project.Some are  involved physically while others are  involved mentally.

That’s why you would see persons toiling in the scorching sun ,working even during light rains. Some persons at the same time would be doing planning or some design work sitting in air-conditioned chambers.

These people are behind any building : Authorities,Clients, Consultants,Contractors & Suppliers.

Clients arrange the resources for the construction and engage a Consultant who prepares the  drawings.Clients & consultant together seek various permissions from Authorities to construct the building .Together they  retain a contractor who organizes procurement of  material & deploys the labor.

Contractor studies the drawings, procures materials from material suppliers ,engages Labor contractors and transforms the drawings on paper to an actual building on the land.

Clients either use the buildings themselves or may sell it to customers who then become the occupants of the new building.

Summary:
Vision of the clients is transformed into a drawing by the consultant.
The drawing gets transformed into an actual building through a contractor.
