A builder is responsible for building and/or repairing various structures – primarily businesses and residences. They are involved in the construction process for buildings and are responsible for carrying out various repair and maintenance duties as well. A builder works within a team, and they must understand the basic process for how a structure is created. A beginning builder usually carries out tasks such as preparing the building area, cleaning the area, assisting in delivering/distributing, and completing other tasks as required. A more experienced builder assists in creating blueprints, estimating budgets, sketching construction projects, and other tasks.
A builder should be able to solve problems associated with construction, consider all possible solutions, and make fast decisions on structural safety and integrity as needed. Builders must be able to work in a variety of weather conditions and work outdoors for extended periods of time. These employees are provided with safety gear and are responsible for ensuring their personal safety, as well as the safety of coworkers.
This is not a job that typically requires traditional schooling, and on-the-job experience is generally required or preferred. It is required that a builder has a strong and diligent work ethic and is able to complete physical aspects of this job, such as lifting and carrying heavy objects, working in extreme temperatures, and completing physical tasks for long periods of time.
