This paper deals with the effect of environment in construction work in a particular area. Surrounding environment has immense effect in construction plan, site management, costs and implementation. On the contrary, it affects the workmanship’s availability as well as material availability. Moreover, duration of a certain projects also depend on the impact of environment. Effect of climate, rainfall, humidity and temperature are the noticeable fact in the paper. This article represents the environmental effect of a particular place in Rajshahi city of Bangladesh which is known as RUET campus. Outcome of the investigation shows that the significant effect can be observed in the various ingredients of environment as well as construction project.
