The Use Of A Building Contractor

By: Carolyn Clayton

The term building contractor refers to a group that draws up a contract with another organisation or individual for the construction or renovation of a building/road/structure. If you are having any construction work done on your property or you are hoping to have some construction work done on your property then you should contact a building contractor team.

During the construction or renovation of a property a building contractor team will be responsible for the methods of construction and the execution of a project, both of which are conducted in accordance with the proposed plans that are set out by the person who has hired the building contractor team.

If you need any repair, maintenance or construction work to be carried out on your property it is advised that you hire the help of a professional building contractor team as they will be able undertake all of the work to the highest standard and you will be left with the peace of mind that all of the work that has been carried out has been done so to the best of ability. A building contractor team will also engage with clients every step of the way throughout the building contractor work that will be conducted, they will keep you informed from the moment you inform them of the idea that you have for your property, through to the planning, maintenance and management of the project. Nothing will be done that hasn't been proposed to you first.

If you do hire a building contractor team to carry out your building work the building contractor team will supply all of the material, labor and equipment that is needed, which includes engineering vehicles and tools as well as the services that are necessary for the construction of the project. Also in many cases, especially when the building contractor job is of a large scale a building contractor team will hire the help of a sub-contractor. The sub-contractor will then do part of the work; an example of this is if a building contractor team needed the specialist help of an electrician they would sub-contract the electrician into the construction job.

An example of what sort of work is involved in the role of a building contractor team includes the following:

&bull Look through and interpret a client's plans and arrange the drawings of such plans to meet certain building regulations.

&bull Submit what are known as tenders, which are offers to do jobs at a stated price as well as submitting quotes or prices for projects to clients.

&bull They arrange a submission of plans to local authorities for approval and arrange inspections of building work.

&bull If sub-contractors are involved a building contractor team will have to organize subcontractors to carry out all the stages of building work as well as negotiating their rates of pay.

&bull They will have to calculate the quantity of material that is required for building projects and then order these from the building suppliers.

&bull Coordinate the activities of office staff involved in the preparation and payment of accounts

&bull Undertake some of the building work personally.
