In Classical texts, the only passive forms for this verb are the third-person singular and plural. Please note that there is a disagreement over whether or not there is a macron on the third and fourth principal parts and the subsequent verb forms from these (cōnstrūxī for cōnstruxī and cōnstrūctum for cōnstructum).
- “construo” in Charlton T. Lewis & Charles Short, A Latin Dictionary, Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1879.
