What Does “Building Construction” Mean?

Building construction is a broad term encompassing the science and art of constructing buildings, materials, or structures, and originally comes from Latin ad constructum and Old French adhaerem (meaning 'to build'). To build is also the verb: it denotes the action of building, the object of the construction, and the subject of the verb, which can also be the person or thing that is built. Thus, “to build” is also “to make.” In English, this implies “to shape or mold, form, or create.”
