Communication with Contractors
by Stonemark Construction Management
It is not possible to overstress the role of communication in every construction project. The most common reason for construction disputes is a breach in communication and expectations. Depending on the size of your project, the hub of communications could be the Estate or Property Manager, or it could be a large enough project to warrant the retention of a professional Owners Representative. Concerted effort is necessary to facilitate communications between the team members. This includes the Architect and Contractor, but many other professionals are required as well: engineers, permit & entitlements expediter, interior designer, communications & computer system designers & installers, furnishing installers, landscape designers, etc. A construction project has an enormous number of “moving parts”: A successful project demands that the professionals involved are experienced, appropriate, have the same mind-set, are team players with complimentary skill sets–and that they are managed to bring out their best work to meet the vision and goals of the project.
