The commercial construction process it beautifully complex. It takes a huge team of professionals with various skill sets: architectural design, construction project management, even the tradesmen who are licenced to operate heavy machinery. A successful construction project cannot come to be without absolutely everyone involved working in harmony.
Of course, that’s probably obvious; any team in any industry cannot achieve a goal without clear direction and synergy. What isn’t so obvious in commercial construction is what creates this synergy—that is, on the logistical side of things, what needs to happen for a construction project to go off without a hitch.
Miller Architects and Builders, a Saint Cloud construction management company, shares what we know and have practiced since 1874 below.
Synergy Is Communication in Disguise
Really, having things go off without a hitch isn’t nearly as complicated as the construction project as a whole. It simply involves open communication, which involves a lot of leg work on the part of the construction management company. Why is it important to do this work?
- Constant communication ensures that no details are missed. In construction, every little bit matters. Cutting corners anywhere in the process, or failing to tie up loose ends, can snowball into a much bigger problem with the building’s structural integrity further down the line. Open communication with all parties involved—from the architect to the builders themselves—ensures that absolutely nothing is missed, as it helps to hold everyone accountable for their work.
- Constant communication gives team members the resources they need for success. When workers, architects, and managers alike feel that communication channels are open, they will not shy away from asking for help or clarifying instructions when needed. This gives everyone the tools, both physical and otherwise, that they need to do their jobs.
- Constant communication means a happy client. At Miller, we understand how a new commercial building can feel like the dawning of an era for your business. We want to make sure that it’s everything you ever dreamed of. How are your dreams to come to fruition if they aren’t communicated?
