The Builder is one of Civilians in the Clash of Clans game.

Nothing gets done around here without Builders! You can hire more Builders to start multiple construction projects, or speed up their work by using green gems.


Builders are the workers that live inside the Builder’s Hut. They can upgrade, build, and rebuild Structures, as well as upgrade your Heroes.

They can also remove Obstacles such as trees, rocks, bushes, etc. One Builder can work on a same building at a time.

Important! Always use your Gems on new builders first rather than Resources or acceleration an upgrade.

Interesting Facts

When a builder is inactive, small z’s will appear from the roof of his house signaling that the builder is resting and is available to be assigned to an upgrade.

They can upgrade anything but Troops if you have enough Resources and your Town Hall is high enough.

A builder runs with his hammer in his right hand, but builds and removes Obstacles using it in his left hand.

It is actually possible to get the 5th Builder for free although it does take a while.

You do not need a Builder to add Decorations or Traps.

When the Builder is running, it moves as fast as a Goblin, and when walking, it moves as fast as a Barbarian.

The Builder does not always go to the same Builder’s Hut it came out of.

If the player moves an inactive Builder’s Hut, a Builder will be seen lying down on the spot where the hut used to be (but not actually sleeping). In older versions, the Builder is not seen lying down when the hut is moved; instead, there will be a dark spot of the Builder’s shadow.
Resting Builder
When the Builder is upgrading something, it takes him 1 minute to create 88 strikes of his hammer on the building.

Two builders can be seen in the “Fort Knobs” village, despite there being no builder huts.

If a Builder Hut is placed on another building and you go to village edit mode before it moves automatically, then hit edit on your active village, then hit cancel, then exit edit mode, the builder will appear to sleep outside of its hut.
