Effective communication between all parties involved in a construction project is essential to that construction project’s success. If one party fails to communicate effectively, this can cause a communication breakdown that then has a ripple effect across everyone’s ability to deliver to plan and meet the project’s expectations.
This is true within teams, but also across teams and the different subcontractors engaged in a project. If a subcontractor fails to tell you there will be a delay, to communicate their timeframe, or to share their requirements on site – and all the other myriad details involved – it can leave you in the dark and hinder your project.
Therefore, it is vital to use subcontractors who are great communicators and who realise the importance of sharing information in a timely and clear manner. If you are looking for a screw piling contractor in Sydney that fits this description, you may be interested in the Piling Experts.
Delays often plague a construction project. As with poor communication, a single delay can have a knock-on effect and suddenly the whole project is out of sync by more than a month.
Delays can be caused by several different factors. These include:
When planning a project, some delays can be foreseen and planned for, and you can make decisions to reduce the risk of delays to make it more likely your project will achieve its goals on time and to budget.
It is not uncommon for the initial forecast expenses to be blown out of the water by unforeseen expenses. This can create issues whereby you are quite literally unable to pay on time due to cash flow, or where the profit margin is eaten into, and potentially even places you at a loss. It may mean you have to pass these expenses onto the client, which can damage your reputation or create disputes.
To avoid this particular type of construction problem, it is essential to forecast well and to accurately predict what sort of costs you will be dealing with. Therefore, you will need to partner with subcontractors that can provide quotes to give you a solid understanding of what you will need to spend. Even better if your subcontractor can offer fixed prices.
To avoid a cost blow-out, it is also beneficial to look to cost-effective methods of construction that make no compromises on quality. Often, many builders will find that screw piling is a highly cost-effective and affordable method of establishing the foundations for the building project.
