The construction industry, as I’m sure you know, can be quite profitable for the people who decide to make their living in it. After all, without construction there would be very little progress and development in the world.

If you’re interested in forging your life as a business person in the construction industry, you have many options available to you. Here are some of the most interesting, and of course, the most profitable:


Set Up a Construction Company

The most obvious route to go down, starting a construction company is a great option for those of you who understand the world of construction inside and out. Whether you’re a contractor, architect, or structural engineer if you have the know-how, you can make big bucks by setting up your own operation.


Start an Equipment Leasing Company

One good way to make money in the construction industry without having to understand quite so much and without having to actually construct a single thing is to get into the equipment leasing business. You’ll need to have a lot of money to invest upfront, but it could be quite lucrative in the long run.

If you’re looking to start a bit smaller, at least invest in a crane, for reasons you can find at this crane guide, an excavator and a bulldozer. With these three high-demand machines, you will get off to a flying start.


Set Up a Cement Manufacture Company

Cement, as I’m sure you’re aware, is the backbone of the construction industry, and as such, if you’re looking to get into the construction business, setting up your own cement production plant is a very good way of making money very quickly. I mean, cement is always needed, and as long as you can produce it affordably and efficiently, you’ll surely be onto a winner.


Manufacture Bricks

Alternatively, you might want to consider manufacturing bricks or building blocks, which are the, well, the building blocks of construction. The benefit of doing this, although you probably won’t make as much money with some of the other options, is that you can start making bricks with very little capital and the minimum of equipment, which makes it perfect for solo entrepreneurs and startups.


Sell Cement

If manufacturing isn’t your thing, you could also make money selling it. Again, the benefit of this is that you need very little equipment or skills, other than the ability to make sales. However, you will have to compete with a lot of already established retailers, so you will need to be confident that you can make your company a more attractive prospect for construction companies to use.


Manufacture Nails

You’d be surprised just how lucrative manufacturing high-quality nails can be. After all, pretty much every construction product requires them and contractors want to ensure that their work is good, so if they can find a solid supply of strong, long-lasting nails, they will buy.


Lay Bricks

One of the easiest skills in the construction industry to learn is how to lay bricks. Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t exactly a cake-walk, but it is very possible for the average person to learn the skill. Sol if you are looking for something you can do on a freelancer or solopreneur basis, and you want to work in the construction industry, learning how to lay down bricks and then offering your services in this area to actual construction companies could be a good way to make money.


Start a Construction Cleaning Business

Contractors often need sites to be cleaned before and after they conduct their work. So, if you don’t have any real construction skills, but you want to take your own slice of this lucrative industry, it may be worth investing in a few construction cleaning tools and setting up business as a dedicated construction cleaner. If you’re thorough and affordable, you shouldn’t find it too difficult to get your first few jobs and then things will hopefully spiral on from there.


Fix Things

If you’re handy in the DIY and department, there is an opportunity to make money from offering your services to construction companies who are dealing with everything from broken tractors to broken paving stones. You may need some training in order to do this but, because things have a tendency to break down quite often, it is probably worth it.

As you can see, it doesn’t matter what your particular skills or interests are; there is always a place for you in the very profitable construction industry!
