Urban construction brincess, constructed urban wetlands Urban construction is a term used to describe a type of construction where people work with materials that are relatively cheap and available to everyone.
It is a way of life for many urban construction workers in Australia and around the world.
The term Urban Construction was coined by Paul Tait, who has worked for more than 50 years in construction, building and engineering.
Paul is a former chief executive officer of Brisbane’s City Builders Association and an experienced builder.
He says that the term Urban construction is an interesting one, because it can be used in two ways.
First, it can describe a particular type of work.
“You can’t just say, ‘We’re building a big building’,” he says.
“But what we can do is look at how you can design an environment where people can build the best work possible, with minimal cost and minimal disruption.”
He says, in some ways, Urban construction can be more environmentally friendly because there are fewer resources and workers required.
“It’s about making the best use of resources, not only in terms of labour but in terms with building materials and materials systems,” he says
