Carpenters carry out a variety of tasks, such as laying out projects and buildings; pouring concrete footings, foundations and walls; making concrete columns, slabs, beams and stairs; building wood or metal floors and walls; building roofs; setting up scaffolding and temporary structures; installing doors and windows; insulating building envelopes and various other building elements; building permanent and temporary divisions; finishing the interior and exterior of a building; building wood stairs; installing modular furniture; and coordinating, analyzing, collecting, calculating and comparing data, particularly when establishing an estimate for repairs or remodelling. They are also required to develop skills in communication, teamwork and interpersonal relationships with people outside the company.
