Subcontractor working on an outdated set of blueprints
Every construction project demands revision until the construction is completed. This is because anything can happen on the site. This means that throughout the timeline, development and revision of plans are continuous resulting in myriad sets of blueprints on the table. When a subcontractor fails to keep pace with the changes and ends up using the wrong set of blueprints, a delay on the schedule may be expected.
An excellent way to prevent this from happening is to ensure that all set of drawings are dated to make sure that all contractors are working on the most recent plans. Dating automatically eliminates any doubt about which the set of plans is up-to-date.
Delay in construction
Delays happen in construction most of the time. No matter how prepared a construction company may be, there are also situations wherein unanticipated problems occur which can affect the overall plan of construction. When a delay on the schedule is inescapable, the only thing that you can do is to mitigate the situation. There are different methods you can employ to tone down the delay. One way is to accelerate the work by dedicating more resources to it. Another method that you can utilize is resequencing of work. There will always be works that are unaffected or not connected with the delayed ones. You can focus on accomplishing this scope first. As soon as the problem is resolved, resume on the official sequence of work.
Quality of work depends on the knowledge and skills of the builders. This is why it is important to employ a rigorous screening process when hiring. It is to ensure that your employees are well versed with methods and techniques in construction. From carpenters to masons, to welders and painters, you need to make sure that whoever you are adding to your team is qualified.
On another note, before the commencement of construction, take the time to schedule a meeting with your builders. An orientation with regards to workmanship will help set the standards that you are expecting. Take this opportunity to also discuss the consequences or measures that will be taken when poor workmanship is exhibited.
