Horizontal Construction

Simply put, Horizontal Construction involves structures that are longer & wider than they are tall.

Examples of Horizontal Construction Projects

Some examples of heavy civil construction projects include, but are not limited to:

Infrastructure & Transit—Roads, railways, & bridgesPower & Communications—Transmission facilities, electric lines, fiber opticsSubterranean—Pipelines, sewer, waterlines

Vertical Construction

Vertical construction primarily consists of projects that are built vertically and rely heavily on a design by an architect.

Examples of Vertical Construction Projects

Buildings—Skyscrapers, offices, apartment buildingsSurface—Parking areas, subsurface or structured facilitiesStructure—building foundation and site work


The main difference between horizontal và vertical construction is predominantly in a spatial context. Is the project spanning wide or is it growing tall? Those are the obvious differences. Another differentiator in these types of construction projects is funding. Vertical construction leans primarily on the private sector whereas horizontal relies on government, state, and municipal funding. However, there is cross-over in-between.

Vertical construction projects are driven by architecture design where heavy civil projects are often led by structural or civil engineers và thiết kế motivations vary. Horizontal construction projects typically focus more on strong bonds with a particular industry. For example, Valiant Group has svào ties within the tight-knit electrical utilities industry and understands the camaraderie và culture of that type of work.


As with any construction project, there are concerns related khổng lồ cost, scope, schedule, & safety. Horizontal & vertical construction projects are focused on meeting the needs of the client as well as keeping within predetermined constraints. Both construction types achieve their goals through design-build methods such as an efficient process workflow, diligent planning, and advanced safety measures.
