Buildings are the constructed elements that make up a colony. Buildings provide living accommodations, protection from enemies and the weather, and various vital functions for the colony.
Buildings that are owned by the colony can be deconstructed; or copied by clicking the [Build copy] button.
Buildings owned by an enemy faction on a local map can be claimed once the enemy are all defeated. Once claimed, the buildings are free to be used by colonists, or deconstructed.
Certain buildings have an option to Uninstall them or Reinstall them at a new location, a task carried out by constructors. An uninstalled building is converted to a minified item and can be sold to traders or reinstalled at another location, and can even be loaded onto caravans to be sold or reinstalled elsewhere.
