|Tackling a complex construction issue without understanding the basic process is like running a marathon without training. An understanding of the construction process can benefit everyone from sales representatives and the customer to the builders themselves. Before decisions can be made and ground can be broken, everyone needs to be working for the same goal from the same understanding.
Knowing that construction tasks are done in a certain sequence and becoming familiar with that sequence is critical to your understanding. Regardless of the size of the home being built and the builder, the sequence of events is basically the same. This sequence has been developed and refined over time and across the entire industry. Using this process has proved very beneficial for home builders because it enables construction to move on a predictable schedule, helps keep construction materials protected once they've been installed, and allows subcontractors to work more efficiently with each other.
Part of grasping this process involves knowing what factors or people can cause delays and knowing the features and benefits of the specific parts of a home. In addition, learning more about the other people involved in the process and the documents commonly used can open the lines of communication and ensure everyone is working as a team.
