In the construction industry, the term ‘services’ might refer to:

The undertaking by a supplier of activities such as; consultation, design, maintenance, installation, banking, insurance, the provision of accommodation, and so on. Services are intangible, and do not involve a transfer of possession or ownership.

Services are distinguished from products and materials, which are tangible items, used in, or incorporated into construction works, such as doors or concrete. However, services may be provided alongside the provision of products or materials.
