For any construction management job, there’s always a need for subcontractors to ensure a job well done. Everything from ensuring quality HVAC-R to pouring the foundation to designing the interior, it’s absolutely key to find and hire the best subcontractors in the business. And, for us, it’s not only to ensure a job well done, it’s to ensure you are satisfied and receive everything that you need throughout the life cycle of the construction project all the way into estate maintenance.
That’s why for each construction project we undertake, we don’t just accept the lowest bidder. Instead, we look at the below key factors to ensure the best in the business is selected to assist in completing your project.
Quality of Work
First and foremost, the subcontractor’s previous work is inspected closely. We ask ourselves questions, such as:
- How many projects like ours have the subcontractor completed?
- Was their previous work successful or were there major hiccups throughout their previous projects?
- Does the company take the time to ensure the job is done right the first time?
Above is just a few of the questions we run through prior to selecting subcontractors for your project. To us, nothing speaks like their previous work, how they handle themselves on the job and the success of their projects.
Expertise in the Field
Right alongside reviewing their previous work, our team also examines what qualifies the subcontractor to successfully complete the task at hand. It’s important to us that each subcontractor holds the right licenses and/or certificates in their trade, which demonstrate their expertise and ability to complete the job successfully.
In addition to ensuring they have the proper licenses and/or certificates, our team also looks to ensure they’ve successfully completed similar projects. While licensing and certification do signify expertise, it’s important for us to know that the subcontractor is capable to complete many of our client’s special requests and custom work. Moreover, that they are reliable and can be counted on to meet deadlines and pass inspections.
Coinciding with quality and expertise comes versatility. As previously mentioned, many of our client’s needs are unique, which means it’s essential that each subcontractor we undertake can easily adapt and execute the necessary tasks to complete the project successfully.
It’s not just being able to do their job well, it’s being able to change direction at a moment’s notice and do it successfully. Oftentimes in construction management, there are hiccups that arise and we want to ensure our subcontractors are not only ready to handle them but can do so without wasting any time or money.
Lastly, it’s important for us to choose subcontractors that are highly recommended in their line of work. We often seek subcontractors by referral from long-term partners. After more than a decade in the industry, we’ve built lasting and trusted partnerships. These partnerships enable us to easily find the best available services and ensure everything you ever dreamed of and more is constructed for you.
When it comes to choosing subcontractors for your project, the RWB team takes every aspect under consideration to ensure you receive the best possible services available to you. This means conducting our due diligence, as well as consulting with you to fully understand your needs. At the end of the day, you are our top priority and we will always go above and beyond to ensure your needs are met.
