INTRODUCTIONConstruction is mainly considered as the part of civil engineering which is directly orindirectly related to human being who seeks for comfortable and attractive buildings. Concept ofconstruction was initially started with purpose of only creating a protective shelter for the user.But, this concept has now modified with involvement of technology in it. Involvement oftechnology in construction contributes in developing strong and long lasting buildings (Chew,2017). This project report is completely based on construction technology which used forconstructing a Hotel building complex. Location of this construction site situated near bymotorway that is connecting to Heathrow international airport. It has been decided by investor tobuild up a 5 storey hotel building complex whose approximate distance from motorway is 1 kmaway. This report is going to describe about different types buildings that is residential, industrialand commercial along with their differences. Further it describes about different techniques thatare used in constructing structures of building including their overall their functions anddesigning criteria. It also elaborates about different types of civil engineering infrastructuretechnology that is used in support of buildings. At last, it discusses about supply and distributionof a range of building services along with their application.TASK 1Differences between residential, commercial and industrial buildingsConstruction technology is a helpful concept which contributes in constructing buildingby using various kind of materials such as concrete, stone, glass, metals, timber etc. It involvesvarious kind of projects that completely depends on the requirements of customers. It hasidentified that there are various types of construction building which are constructed for differentpurpose like commercial, residential and industrial. It can be said that every type of constructionbuilding requires some different technology that can support in its creation (Zavadskas and et.
