I have been in the Construction Industry for fifty-one (51) years. My strengths are Communications with the Owners and their representatives discussing and processing Change Orders, Estimates, Project Planning, and finding what I call the Nitch. The Nitch (strategic planning) is finding what can be done to expedite a project. In doing so you save the client money and in the process you make at least twice the amount you saved the client. Every project has at least one.
You have to build the trust with your clients and in the industry. Your client has to trust that you are going to build his project in accordance to the plans and specifications. Your projects have to be orderly and neat. They know when you are on their project that Safety is number one, if you are able to save them money without compromising the integrity of that project you will, and that the project will be completed on time.
Estimating Projects:, I have been estimating since 1982. Projects ranging from $40,000.00 to $64,000,000.00 There are only three things in estimating a project, 1.True costs, 2.True Overhead, and 3. Profit. The only things that change is Costs. Profit & Overhead doesn’t change. Not surrendering to the pressure and making yourself to believe you can do things faster or more efficient thatn you had previously. Bidding projects that way will lower your overhead for sure, because you just got fired.
I have been blessed to have worked with and for some of the best minds in the construction industry. I have seen the Industry change to accommodate the very changing demands. The Construction Industry is a constant evolving process and if you don’t pay close attention it will pass you by. Training our future replacements in the Industry is key. If this is not done then we as a whole will ultimately fail.
The one thing that I won’t compromise is that “ I will never lie to you or for you”. I was taught at a young age that your word is your bond and that no one can take away from you except yourself. Without it you’re nothing.
