For first time builders who contract owners who intend hiring a construction firm, it is ideal to understand certain rules while and before initiating a project agreement with your contractor. Successful building and construction projects are hitch-free types that overcame hassles, confusion and misconception on the side of their owners and the contractors handling them.
Out of my many years of experience in the industry and a thorough study on some of the related/possible reasons why most construction projects never draw to a complete closure rightly. I’ve got a few important notes to share with you in the next few paragraphs below.
Who is the “Company”?
If big projects are involved, the possibility that every leading member or a supposedly appointed commercial construction company should be involved. From the least in the management to the highest, the manager of the business should be able to welcome his clients with a warm salutation and helping them have an insight into the company’s operation and services. This goes in-line with other introductory rights. This is crucial, because you need to know the person or people you’re dealing with. More so, no one will like to entrust a multi-million dollar project to a ghost of inexperienced workers in this 21st century and computer age.
The Company’s Portfolio
Before they said anticipated company will process and get finalized as the project handler/contractor. It is ideal for you as the project owner or manager to conduct a test of faith before arriving at a final conclusion. Endeavor to know if the company has a well documented brochure portraying verifiable number of completed past projects. This will help you to ascertain its credibility, honesty, diligence and deliverability.
State of Operational Tools
In every accurate and properly compiled portfolio, it is conventional for a view of the tools and equipments a construction company utilise to be mentioned and incorporated. Understanding the nature of equipements a home builder uses in the operation will give a client/project owner an insight into the modus operandi of such a contractor. In situations where modern tools and top notch equipments are best options for a home build firm — it is more likely that they’d win more and more projects from clients.
Understanding Both Parties
With mutual understanding on both side of each party, the success of the project is no distance farther. In building and construction, matters concerning or related to projects financing, architecture, building materials, land or location mapped-out for project, etc are often brought to desk and deliberated. Both parties needs to take a concise look at each aspect from the builder’s point of view and that of the skilled contractor – hence, a passage of mutual understanding on each area before commencement.
