Civil Work is primarily that work which is fixed to the house and cannot be changed easily. It includes tiling, bathroom renovation, breaking any walls, fixing the kitchen platform, electrical work, etc. It is usually more messy and tedious compared to the other work such as furniture and kitchen. Usually when you buy a new flat from a builder, he gives it to you with the civil work completed so you just have to focus on the wood work such as furniture and kitchen. In the process of building, you can just ask the builder to put in tiles, fittings, etc. as per your choice.

Civil work usually takes a long time to complete. It generates a lot of mess in the house which can affect existing furniture. The day laborers who do civil work related to masonry are pretty hard to work with, and its difficult to get this labor on your own. It also requires some scheduling as multiple teams have to work in parallel and in sync to get the work done. For example, after the bathroom tiles are broken, the piping has to be done, and the masons have to come back to fix the new tiles; electrical work has to be completed before plastering and the first coat of paint; electrical pipes need to be laid in the floor before the tiles are laid on top of them, etc.
