Avoid These Mistakes To Keep Your Construction Timeline

We get it, construction has a bit of a bad reputation for taking longer than expected. And if you’re thinking about starting a renovation or new build, this can be off-putting.

How We Prioritize Construction Safety

Construction is inherently risky, which is why here at Dunlap we take safety seriously. When you have the right systems in place, you can mitigate the risks and create a safer environment. Our goal is to not only perform high quality work on time, and on budget, but to also do that work without people getting injured during the process. This is important on new builds and renovations alike, and especially on projects where parts of the building are still operational, like hospitals. Let’s take a look at how we prioritize construction safety.

Good Construction Management Leads To Success

Any successful construction project needs a skilled and experienced team, but perhaps most importantly is the presence of good construction management. This part of the process involves taking a bird’s eye view of the whole scope, organizing the details, and keeping things on track. At Dunlap, we prioritize both the management of the building process in addition to a highly skilled construction team because we know that success depends on both. What exactly does good management look like? Let’s discuss it.
