A trade is the term used to describe manual and structural work in the construction industry.

In the construction industry , a trade generally includes the work that can be assigned to a self-contained construction area. In the construction sector, craft ( HWK ) and industrial ( IHK ) professions usually depict the activities of the trades that define the profession.

Private entities may also to a complete construction general contractor awarded or grouped trades advertise .
