The building and construction process can be complicated, but with the right trades, the process really can (and should!) become streamlined.
Whether it’s a new home, an apartment block, or corporate offices, a builder’s job is to manage and complete the successful construction of a new property. Similarly, the same applies to a renovation.
As part of their job, they have the responsibility to honour two of the most important components:
- Their client’s requirements
- Industry and government regulations
In the construction process, choosing a building is one of the first (if not the first) steps, as builders can also act as project or build managers.
However there are some elements of a build that are beyond the builder’s control or skillset. That’s why they engage a variety of contractors to perfect specialised tasks that all contribute to the successful completion of a project.
Before we take a closer look at the role Coolro plays with builders, let’s first look at the types of building practitioners or contractors a builder requires to complete tasks throughout a project.
The term building practitioner can encompass a variety of specialised trades, including:
Their tasks vary widely, but their overall role is to construct houses, offices, apartments, and other buildings.
As mentioned above, builders can also manage the entire process as well as engage sub-contractors to perform specific roles.
Builders are also usually responsible for:
- Providing quotes
- Submitting tenders
- Arranging inspections
- Organising invoicing any payments
Architect and draftsperson
An architect’s role is one of the earliest in a project: their plans that are the first vision towards a final product.
Coolro works closely with architects through an entire project (and can even join late if an element of heating or cooling has been overlooked).
Draftspeople work closely with architects; in fact, their role is rather similar.
It is the role of a building surveyor to ensure buildings are safe, energy efficient, and liveable. A building surveyor gains access to plans and contributes to decisions in regards to design and function of buildings.
At the conclusion of work, it is the building surveyor’s role to issue the permit or certificate of final inspection.
Each has their own specialised set of skills, and in most Australian states, licensed tradespeople are the only people authorised to carry out specialised work (such as gas plumbing).
Not only can DIY work be dangerous, but it some states, it’s illegal, too.
Interior designers combine practicality, safety, and décor to create a space that is not only functional and safe, but one that looks good, too!
Each of the above roles is conducive to the overall smooth operation of a new domestic or commercial construction, or renovation.
Don’t underestimate the importance of ducted heating and cooling
