Civil engineering is a broad term for relatively large scale construction and maintenance works such as coastal engineering projects.
Deconstruction is the process of salvaging valuable components and materials from a building before it is demolished. In theory, it is possible to completely deconstruct a building if it has been designed for it. This is likely to be a growth industry due to environmental concerns and interest in reuse.
Environmental remediation is the process of cleaning up environmental damage or restoring ecosystems. This often involves construction and landscaping work.
Temporary construction is the process of assembling structures that have a limited lifespan. This typically requires that structures are deconstructable.
Traditional construction is the process of building according to a tradition and culture. For example, building log cabins that are consistent with historical designs.
Space construction is the emerging field of constructing structures in space.
