Throughout our history we’ve worked on a wide range of commercial projects, and we understand only too well how stressful and time consuming the process can be when things don’t go according to plan.
E-Tech are committed to your success, and in this blog post we’ll be sharing a few tips on how to make your construction project go as smoothly as possible.
It is important that every member of your team is on the same page when it comes to your construction goals, and they should also have an opportunity to speak up and voice any concerns or ideas. When everyone is working towards a common goal and has a clear picture of what you are after, there will be less room for error and productivity will increase. A great way of managing your communication is through the use of cloud-based construction management software which can be accessed any time by team members and updates can be posted.
Choose Your Team Carefully
Ensure that you only use reputable builders, tradespeople, architects and designers. It’s a good idea to research their backgrounds, confirm they hold all appropriate licenses/insurances, references and pricing.
Rest assured that by engaging E-Tech Group you are in safe hands, as we are members of the Master Builders Association and hold numerous ISO and AS certifications.
Determine a Budget/Finance Arrangements
You should obtain a bank prefunding report prior to commencing the build, as this will make the finance process much smoother. You will also have a good idea of project viability and an understanding of the total cost of development.
Establish a Timeline
Prior to commencing your project, you should establish a timeline for completion. This can be conservative, but it’s a good idea because it allows you to plan your project and team members will be motivated to work towards this goal. Being able to refer to this document on a weekly or monthly basis can help you gain a better understanding of how things are progressing, helping to minimise stress and stay on track for success.
Maintain a Good Relationship with Council
Every local council has different regulations when it comes to development applications and building work, and the process should be started as soon as possible. It’s a good idea to attend public hearings and city council meetings, and these can be followed up by team meetings.
No matter how much planning and preparation goes into a construction project, you should always expect setbacks. It could be weather related, supply related, an issue with council or something else entirely. You cannot be prepared for everything, just try and deal with these issues as they come.
