Are you interested more in the "crew" aspect or the "architectural construction" aspect. There are laws concerning road building, including (as I recall) the feeding of crews --and road building is often a civic duty, rather than a guild controlled employment (at least in England).

Medieval and Renaissance construction was centered around the craft guilds,
mason, painters, carpenters, etc.  Without knowing precisely what you are
after, try googling medieval construction, medieval mason guilds, medieval
carpenter guilds and medieval painter guilds for images.
