What is a Field?

A field in the construction industry refers to a physical area or a project site where construction activities take place. These fields are typically outdoors, such as building sites or highway projects, and can range from open spaces to restricted and confined areas. Fieldwork involves various construction tasks like excavation, foundation setting, erecting structures, piping, and landscaping. Field operations are significant in shaping the entire construction project, influencing cost, time, quality, and safety. It's important to note that the field is where the practical application of engineering designs happens, turning blueprints into reality.
