  • Back to the Future | Competitive Advantage
    If we use two trades to do this work it will be unnecessarily expensive There are plenty of other examples of how new products and systems are leading to a cross over of skills Contractors need to adapt to this and find new ways of working Continuing that theme if the industry is going to meet the government s challenge of taking cost out of construction it needs to work together differently Simplifying the construction process and reducing times to complete projects will be key and much better than just reducing already slim margins There are many new products being introduced which reduce installation time but there is slow adoption because of a cost plus mentality A greater customer focus is also important Accepted it is difficult to build relationships with some clients as was highlighted in last week s Roundtable report in Construction News But others like the Highways Agency do recognise the value of early contractor involvement And at the micro level when dealing with the small client and homeowner it is important to make the client feel important and cared for This is an opportunity for consultative selling giving free expert advice which can lead to further work And let s not forget the S word SUSTAINABILITY It now touches all aspects of the construction industry and has the potential to provide us with a lot of work in the future So make sure you understand how it affects you and spot the opportunities for to add value to you business offering 2021 Vision is a must read if you work in electrical contracting but it is also useful background information for everyone working in the construction industry It can be downloaded from http www eca co uk assets files 2021 Vision PDF 1 pdf Author Chris
