The construction yard is the primary base building in Red Alert 1.

Background

Construction yards and MCVs are used widely during Second World War. The Allies and Soviets use identical designs. Generally, the construction yard completes all components before construction of the final structure begins at the desired location.

Legacy

After the war, the Allied replaced these structures with the Allied construction yard while the Soviets replaced them with the Soviet construction yard.
