Why You Should Hire a Team – Alex Rodriguez

Through the years the projects that we have taken on have become more technical with more facets of complexity. More choices in materials, elements of design and time constrictions due to professional obligations all contribute to a very challenging building environment. Technology has paved the way for new materials such as 3d tile patterns, complex plumbing system and digital integration in the home. Truth be told, residential construction is widely tainted by flaky and sloppy people of ill repute for those of us who strive to deliver a positive experience and quality service to clients. I think it is fair to set a reasonable expectation.

Team Building Model

With these complexities, a single ‘construction guy’ in a truck simply cannot keep track of all the tasks that need to get done in order to deliver a project on time. This is self-evident when you look at the low customer satisfaction rating many contractors earn online. The fact is that between designing a project, planning the construction, and executing the construction plan, it takes more than one individual. It takes a team. Managing people, quality control, and delivering a project on time is a function of processes and planning. Processes are systems, rules, and protocol that help guide the behavior of the people of a company. The stakes are high in construction because the liability is high. Working with a contractor that has a designer, project manager, foreman, and a season team of sub-contractors makes a world of difference. The relationships we establish with our subs and vendors helps us deliver a better experience for our clients. The reason is simple, we treat our employees, vendors and sub-contractor well. We earn their respect and sub sequentially they really enjoy working for us and are committed to providing good quality service to our clients. The ticket to tomorrow job is earned by stellar performance on today’s job.
