Advantages of using a Specialist Industrial Shed Builder
For companies and departments in the market for a new shed, warehouse, hangar, extension or awning, a fixed-price construction specialist like Asset Building Systems (ABS) should be at the top of your list.
It’s become heart-wrenchingly clear to us that there are inherent problems with unfixed price projects that are either multi-contractor engagement or internally-managed projects. An avenue often chosen for perceived cost-savings, non-fixed cost projects are a losing battle, hindered by significant cost overruns, delays and failure to deliver.
Asset is often summoned with frequent requests to recuperate progress, cost control and find solutions to problems for projects that are mid-construction. It’s an unfortunate reality.
In response to this recurring crisis, it’s one of Asset’s newest missions to halt cost overruns, hidden costs and delays at the source by showing clients the advantages of signing up to our fixed-cost, turnkey, singular point of contact project delivery.
With more than two decades in the business of building structures for complex infrastructure, heavy industries, government, mining, commercial, industrial and educational institutions in NSW. Asset exists to assert greater certainty in your project delivery with our turnkey fixed-price methodology.
The Downfalls of Multi-contractor & Self-Managed Methods
Without collaboration from the start, a lot of responsibility is left up to discretion in multi-party construction. Project managers are often left abandoned, endlessly chasing their tails in an attempt to fill the gaps. Ultimately for the client, it causes too many points of contact, creating ambiguous ac-countability.
On typical multi-contractor and self-managed projects-gone-wrong, core responsibilities are spread across three or more parties including the you the client. The structure may arrive with sub-par steelwork, installers will struggle with the structural components because they are not to specifica-tion with the site, and accountability will be handed off like a hot potato until the problem reaches the client.
Weeks of back-and-forth pass, and the client is the one who is expected to pick up the bills with ex-tra engineering, construction costs, days of delay, and stress. Lack of transparent accountability is at the core of these contract arrangements.
With Asset, your project is in safe hands. Upholding complete accountability, transparency and solu-tion-based project management, you can expect same-day problem solving without hidden costs or palming off responsibility.
A Real World Example of a Multi-contractor Projects-Gone-Wrong
At Asset, we often learn about problems that happen with multi-contractor projects. One particular problematic project provides an opportunity to compare with how Asset rises above the competition.
- Client opted for standard shed from a seller with external fabricators & installers (3 parties involved).
- The steelwork that arrives onsite is poor quality, and the installers struggle with it. Many parts don’t fit the site properly. Eg. walkways not align with existing buildings correctly etc.
- The installers say “not my problem”, and pass on the problem with the fabricator.
- The fabricator sends the problem back to the seller.
- The seller contacts the client to present the problem.
- The client is expected to find solutions to the problem, as an intermediary between the engineer and the seller!
Result: Weeks of delay and stress, extra engineering and construction costs that far exceed the orig-inal estimate. The multi-contractor model fails to deliver transparency, accountability and cost cer-tainty.
If the client had opted to go with Asset Building Systems:
- Asset is engaged as the single point of accountability with a fixed cost contract, as the project manager, designer, fabricator, supplier, installer.
- A problem occurs onsite with steelwork not matching up.
- Asset Representative on-site targets the problem, liaises with the in-house fabrication team and design department. Half an hour later, the Asset project manager presents three solutions to the cli-ent to address the problem. “Here’s the solution to the problem that you didn’t know about yet, and we can do it in these 3 ways, take your pick & we’ll get the process rolling to get it sign-off from en-gineer”.
Result: Problem fixed same day, no extra engineering or construction fees, and no headaches. Thanks to Asset’s turnkey model of operation and fixed-price, solution-based approach to your pro-jec
