Managing the Small Construction Business: A Hands-On Guide 2ed Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


Many small contractors fail each year, not because they lack technical skills, but because they lack in business knowledge and experience. Their job-site training has prepared them to lead a carpentry crew; rather than to negotiate contracts, estimate and schedule jobs, keep accurate accounts, and manage their new relationships with employees, subs, and customers. Here, over 60 successful small-volume contractors share the techniques that have worked best for them in all aspects of the building and remodeling business. Among the topics covered are:
  • Building Strategies
  • Unit-Pricing
  • Contract Clauses
  • Preconstruction Meetings
  • Change Orders
  • Job-Site Safety
  • Bookkeeping Basics
  • Quality Control
  • Design/Build
  • Overhead & Markup
  • Managing Subs
  • Scheduling Systems
  • Cost-Plus Contracts
  • Personnel Policies
  • Pricing Small Jobs
  • Low-Cost Marketing
  • Customer Service
  • Conflict Resolution
