Add a Custom Project Type


To create a list of customised project types using the company's Admin tool. 


To help you better organise your projects in Procore, a user with 'Admin' level permission to the company's Admin tool can create a customised list of project types. The project types that you add here can later be assigned to individual projects, which allows you to classify your projects. To learn more, see Add Project Type to a Project.

  • If your company specialises in Residential building, you might want to create custom project types, such as: Houses, Townhouses, Apartments, Condominiums, Cottages, Single-Unit Dwellings and Subdivisions.
  • If your company is a head contractor, you might want to create custom project types, such as: Residential, Building, Institutional and Commercial, Industrial, Specialized Industrial, Highway Construction and Heavy Construction.
