“You can dream, create, design, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it requires people to make the dream a reality.” – Walt Disney.
Importance of Collaboration
The subcontractors provide expertise in products, materials. and the execution of any job. They supply manpower, equipment, tools, and design input. The relationship between the us – the main contractor – and our subcontractors is one of the keys to any successful construction project. In simple terms… we couldn’t do what we do, without them.
Communication is Key
The complexity of our projects and the sheer number of different trades that we need to coordinate creates an imperative for streamlining processes, communication, and distribution in real time of critical documents such as construction drawings.
Clear and concise regular communication unpins all good contractors’ relationships. This must be a two-way street to ensure both parties are kept up to date as things progress and inevitably changes occur. Building and maintaining positive and trusting relationships with our subcontractors improves efficiency onsite and increases the probability that the project will be delivered on-time, within budget and to a high standard.
How do we choose ours?
We have a core group of trusted contractors across the range of trades that we use time and time again and we have built relationships with over many years (in some cases 20+ years). We tend to choose the right contractors for each job dependent on the circumstances of each job such as: complexity, size, location, availability of labour & materials.
We view our subcontractors as part of our team, operating on the same side to achieve the same goals. As such we try to listen and take on board the needs of our contractors, their design input, their constructive feedback from end to end. Our annual Contractor Breakfast event is designed to encourage two-way feedback and relationship building.
So, what do our subcontractors say about us?
• “You listen to us and our feedback, especially when something unexpected crops up onsite. This feels very team orientated and creates effective solutions.”
• “We are made to feel like part of the team.”
• “Habit Action supply all details of the work required to a high standard, drawings and site details, making our job easier to carry out to the highest standard possible.”
• “You plan and coordinate jobs with clear instructions that are quickly updated as the project progresses onsite so everyone it kept in the loop.”
