Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering
English term or phrase: trades
Taken from a specification which outlines how the work on a construction site has to be performed:

Provide all **trades** with necessary details of related types of work. Before starting each new type or section of work ensure previous related work is:
- Appropriately complete.
- In accordance with the project documents.
- To a suitable standard.

I'm not sure what's the meaning of trade in this context. Could it refer to the people working on the site? Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
