Both established construction contractors as well as players that are new to the construction game approach a new project in a unique way, entirely dependent on what works for the business and the business owners. However, there are always new methods of brainstorming and planning before initiating a new project that may allow you to eliminate potential pitfalls.Never Underestimate The Team A construction business has a number of key players within the management team. Each member, whether architects or project managers, have had experience with specific builds in the past. Your team's primary engineer, who (for example) has had experience in building hospitals may have important advice for the team's architect that will make his task much easier. Listen to each member of the team before making any conclusions during the planning stage of the build.Set Up A Meeting Calendar With Property Owner Ensure that you regularly meet up with the development's owners by designing a schedule and calendar in advance. Larger development projects often require daily updates from construction teams and engineers, but by taking the initiative in designing a schedule and daily feedback procedure you will show professionalism and a willingness to solve issues before they arise.Don't Cut Corners Some construction project managers, engineers or contractors find this out the hard way. If you require a specialized build that needs to be outsourced, do not continually refer back to a trusted contractor as you may bypass a business that specializes in a particular build. Using our hospital example: your regular plumbing contractor may have installed hundreds of hotel water reticulation systems, but he may not have installed a hospital's plumbing before (a task that another contractor may specialize in).Manage Project Trades Before Commencement Construction contractors may have quoted developers on materials before the build, but always take into account the hidden costs and pitfalls when approaching a construction project. Construction projects may seem to be a walk in the park, but before long they turn into costly money pits once construction begins. Keep this danger in mind when approaching every future project. The easiest way of doing this is to remain transparent with developers regarding costs, manage all your business's trades, and don't leave your engineering/architectural team in the dark.Make sure you approach your next project confidently and keep in mind the above ideas. There can never be too much planning on the part of the contractor or project manager when it comes to property development. Make sure your team is behind you, and only use the most dependable equipment.
