Learning About Construction Practices

Hello, my name is Jennifer Altman. Welcome to my website about construction practices. When I was a young kid, I would go down the block to the nearby construction site and watch the workers perform their jobs. I was fascinated by the equipment and practices used to erect large buildings in such a short time. Since that period in my life, I have continued to learn all I can about the construction field. I created this site to share that knowledge with my readers and help everyone better understand the practices used in the construction field. Thanks for visiting my site. Please come back again soon.
