In brief: Maybe

If your pressure is uncontrolled and heavy isometric man oeuvres during construction work can make them dangerously high.
However if if BP is controlled there should be no problem.

In brief: Not if controlled

As long as the hypertension is well controlled construction work is not contrindicated.
A stress test on a good medical program before doing such work is often done.
