Common Challenges in Building Projects
Failure to capture accurate initial details and requirements often results in unexpected costs during construction. Inadequate site and property assessment can also lead to unforeseen expenses, increasing the overall budget.
Lack of Clarity in Contracts:
Quotes without comprehensive details and poorly structured contracts can lead to disputes and arguments later on, leaving parties without a clear recourse and potentially derailing the project.
Excavation and wall-stripping processes may reveal unforeseen issues, leading to additional costs. The nature of the construction process makes it difficult to predict every challenge, highlighting the importance of thorough planning.
Builder Underestimation and Cost Reclamation:
Opting for the cheapest builder may initially seem appealing, but it can result in the builder realizing that the project cannot be completed within the agreed-upon price. This situation often leaves clients burdened with additional costs and feelings of regret.
Lack of Understanding of Responsibilities:
Once construction commences, builders assume responsibility for various aspects, including adhering to building regulations, applying accurate drawings, and ensuring on-site measurements are correct. Failure to understand these responsibilities can lead to complications and delays.
Insufficient checks and a poorly formulated work schedule can result in work being performed incorrectly or out of sequence. This can lead to abortive work, significantly increasing costs for the client and potentially causing significant repercussions.
The Demand for Building Works
After experiencing a slowdown in 2022, the demand for building works has been fluctuating and is currently showing a recent decrease. However, we remain hopeful that the situation will stabilize in the near future. Meanwhile, we strive to maintain competitiveness by being transparent with our costs, although it’s worth noting that building costs have increased significantly post-COVID.
The Rise of Unscrupulous Builders
During extended periods of economic growth, there is an unfortunate side effect of an increased number of individuals seeking work. This situation provides an opportunity for unqualified or unscrupulous individuals to enter the building industry. While their motivations may vary, it results in a significant number of rogue traders slipping through the cracks.
