Piling contractors, also known as foundation contractors, are among the first specialists you should line up when beginning your building project. Getting the foundations right from the outset means that the rest of the build can go smoothly. It also ensures that the finished structure is safe and able to be used. Poorly constructed or inappropriate foundations not only puts a building at the potential risk of collapse, but also impacts on the quality of work other construction contractors on-site will later carry out. This can affect your budget, project plan and overall quality control. Hiring the right specialists for the job is essential.
No business owner wants to lay out for more construction staff than is necessary, and you may assume the more you can do towards managing your own project, the better. But sometimes spending a little more money on a project can yield exceptional results. Do you have the specialist knowledge to hire the right piling contractors at foundations stage, for example? What if the piling contractor you’ve hired comes across a problem – would you have the expertise to make the right decision to address that? And who will oversee the quality of work your contractors are producing – would you spot an issue at an early stage, or when that issue has become a larger, more expensive problem to address? Perhaps you have simply found that the build is more complicated and/ or time-consuming than you initially thought. In these situations, hiring a project manager so that a professional can be on-site more or less full time can help immensely. This can be done at any stage of the project, from initial planning stages to any point throughout. Productivity of the workmen on-site, from concrete piling and cladding contractors to roofers, will be improved with the right project manager to oversee the day to day work schedule and put contingency plans in place when things go wrong. They will be there to control quality and costs; ensure materials and trades are brought in at the right time; and keep the project moving and within the timescales set.
If you choose to tackle the project without a dedicated manager, what do you need to know when hiring UK piling contractors? Firstly, you need to know what results are required. Essentially, a solid foundation is a must for any building, and larger buildings, then you need deep foundations. Piling contractors London construct these, fortifying them with columns to support the building that will stand upon them. This is an extremely specialist role, so hiring the best for your particular project is essential. The first thing to look for is experience. You want a contractor with a good track record in the type and size of building you are planning. Next, ascertain whether the firm you have in mind is accredited with an industry professional body, such as the British Drilling Association. This gives you assurances as to their expertise and also a source of redress if there is a problem further down the line. Look for a firm that offers a guarantee on its work – if they have confidence to do that, it follows that you are more likely to be able to trust them to do a good job than a firm that offers no such promise. Finally, bear in mind that the best contractors are liable to be busy. As soon as you have a timeframe for your build, begin looking for the right candidates for your project.
