The first thing any construction manager does is order a lot of bricks. These building materials are used in various ways, of course, from creating pavements or driveways to creating an actual building. This means that getting away with a smaller amount of bricks than what you really need is virtually impossible – it’s also very unwise to try and cut costs on this fundamental material of your construction project. So make sure you never compromise on quality in this department, either!

Wastefulness with building materials runs parallel to wastefulness with funding, after all!

Sports grounds construction has to be among the simplest and most cost-effective construction projects a school can get up to, right? Comparing these projects to the erection of school buildings, however, is a little bit like comparing apples and oranges; the costs of a simple hockey AstroTurf or cricket pitch may surprise you.

That’s why investing in a new addition to your school’s sports facilities is something you should carefully consider before making the decision. Here’s an overview of the construction of a concrete cricket pitch.
