Building construction is the process of adding structure to real property or construction of buildings. The vast majority of building construction jobs are small renovations, such as addition of a room, or renovation of a bathroom. Often, the owner of the property acts as laborer, paymaster, and design team for the entire project. However, all building construction projects include some elements in common – design, financial, estimating and legal considerations. Many projects of varying sizes reach undesirable end results, such as structural collapse, cost overruns, and/or litigation. For this reason, those with experience in the field make detailed plans and maintain careful oversight during the project to ensure a positive outcome.Residential construction practices, technologies, and resources must conform to local building authority regulations and codes of practice. Materials readily available in the area generally dictate the construction materials used (e.g. brick versus stone, versus timber). Cost of construction on a per square meter (or per square foot) basis for houses can vary dramatically based on site conditions, local regulations, economies of scale (custom designed homes are always more expensive to build) and the availability of skilled tradespeople. As residential construction (as well as all other types of construction) can generate a lot of waste, careful planning again is needed here.

Consumer good, in economics, any tangible commodity produced and subsequently purchased to satisfy the current wants and perceived needs of the buyer. Consumer goods are divided into three categories: durable goods, nondurable goods, and services.Consumer durable goods have a significant life span, often three years or more (although some authorities classify goods with life spans of as little as one year as durable). As with capital goods (tangible items such as buildings, machinery, and equipment produced and used in the production of other goods and services), the consumption of a durable good is spread over its life span, which tends to create demand for a series of maintenance services. The similarities in the consumption and maintenance patterns of durable and capital goods sometimes obscure the dividing line between the two. The longevity and the often higher cost of durable goods usually cause consumers to postpone expenditures on them, which makes durables the most volatile (or cost-dependent) component of consumption. Common examples of consumer durable goods are automobiles, furniture, household appliances, and mobile homes.
These companies are responsible for publishing online, console and mobile games. They are responsible for marketing, public relations, sales and manufacturing of the games. They usually fund the game’s development process by paying online, console and mobile game developers an advance against future royalties to cover the cost of developing a game. Typically the money is paid to the game developer upon achieving milestones during the development process. After the game developer completes the game it is brought to market by the game publisher. The money received from sales of the game will go back to the publisher until they have recouped the money advanced to the developer. If the game is successful and the publisher recoups their investment then the developer will earn additional royalty payments. Learn More ->
