Permanent Construction Law and Legal Definition

Permanent construction refers to a construction suitable and appropriate to serve a specified purpose for at least twenty five years with a minimum of maintenance.

The following is an example of a case law on permanent construction:

The ironwork to be built into or attached to the permanent construction of the dam consists of anchor bolts, disks, wedge bolts, clamps, dowels, driftbolts, spikes, horse and trestle boxes, hurters, slides, sill straps and sills, and all required to complete the works, ready to receive the horses for the wickets and the trestles of service bridges, as shown generally by the drawings.
