Carrie's Construction Tips

Welcome to my blog. I'm Carrie and I would like to share some of the top tips I have learnt about construction and repair work in the home. My passion is for buying old property and carrying out work on them to bring them into the 21st century. I started out doing this a couple of years ago. I used some money I had inherited to buy a wreck of a place and if I am honest, I didn't have a clue what I was doing. I was really lucky to find some great contractors who helped me out a lot and taught me lots of very cool things.


How can a civil works company help you?

Almost every building project is a team effort. There will be someone to draw up the initial design. Someone else will carry out the necessary surveys. Another person will submit the plans for approval. Finally, there will be teams involved in the construction work as the project takes shape on the ground.

When dealing with large civil works, the number of people can grow exponentially with multiple stakeholders involved at every stage of the project. Trying to keep all sides satisfied with the projects progress while still finding time to manage operations on the ground can be overwhelming. The best solution is to arrange for a civil works company to support your project. Here are two ways that bringing in engineers who specialize in civil works could benefit your company.

The value of distance

Sometimes you can become so caught up in the details of the project that you struggle to focus on the full parameters of the project. When you employ civil works specialists, they can oversee every aspect of the scheme from the initial development through the tendering and construction phases. When you can entrust control in these areas to experts, you can have confidence that they can guide the project to a successful conclusion at the appointed time.  

The value of expertise

Overseeing civil works frequently requires a detailed grasp of the engineering involved. When you employ a civil works company, they will submit all of the operational works applications to your council. They will know how to answer all of the questions relating to stormwater, sewerage and mains water supply that inevitably need to be addressed. The team will have the experience needed to satisfy the council on every point and ensure that your project is approved without delay.

The value of monitoring

Each stage of your project will be completed by a different team. For the project to be a success, each team must work together and have the same understanding of all the instructions. A civil works team will be able to monitor each stage of the project. They will check the location of all the building work and the materials that were used. The civil works engineers will also check that all building regulations were observed during construction. If the situation on the ground changes and any alterations need to be made to the agreed plans, the civil work company will find a solution that fixes the problem without impinging on any other aspects of the project.
