This is pretty broad question - and the answer would really depend on what specifically or area of construction you would be involved with. Some examples:

1) Carpenters - could you use very wide variety of tools & equipment - from hammers, to saws, to drills to all sorts of hand tools.
2) Plumbers - could use variety of hand tools - like drills, pipe cutters, welders, soldering.
3) landscaping or earthwork - could involve large equipment like bobcats, backhoes, bulldozers, scrapers, dump trucks, to small tools like shovels, rakes, etc.
