To the untrained eye, a construction project is a work of art that simply appears on the horizon brick by brick, with all of the pertinent pieces coming together to create a new office tower, school or luxury home. However, those in the business know there is a lot more to the process. It starts long before a building comes out of the ground. That includes getting approved submittals. It is important for a contractor not to fall behind on any step of the process: consider new technology and automation to assist in creating a smooth process.
Before construction begins, a contractor’s primary job is to ensure all construction submittals are complete and approved. Submittals determine the accuracy of project completion, verify line items on the budget and show the proposed timeline.
Every contractor and project manager must understand the importance of approved submittals, why they matter, what these submittals should include and how best to streamline the process.
