With the right support you can transform your construction business. Firstly you will need to understand the role of the administration when it comes to your construction project. Although when onsite, it may look like a role that picks up anything not covered by any other team there is a logic to the chaos. You will want to have someone on the ball experience at handling whatever is dropping in their lap. But that will cost you more than you have budgeted for, so what usually happens is a cost-cutting exercise.
A Construction Company Transformed
- visiting the various sites
- in meetings with the clients,
- in meetings with sub-contractors
- in meetings with other stakeholders, or
- checking the wrong pigeonhole.
Having an engaged admin team will ensure that you have a trusted ally to alert you of potential concerns or matters to take note of when they crop up. Over two years that system was in place because it worked on a smaller scale site.
Sometimes it's not broke but it's also not suitable for the current situation.
Recognise the Gaps
When working on-site, you don’t get the scaffolder to do plumbing. Nor do you grab the first person who can identify a hammer as your chippy. You want skilled individuals on-site, and the same practice should be applied off-site.
So many of the smaller construction companies sabotage their own business by not having a proper set-up when it comes to the “paperwork”. For the record, administration is so much more than shuffling papers. Once it goes wrong, you will come to appreciate knowing the difference.
Your alternative to in-house experience is having a solid system in place. That is where CAS Ltd can ensure your business and your team are up to speed on the basics so you can deliver the project.
