Low quote means excellent value for money

The biggest mistake when choosing the building contractor. Low quote usually means that materials used for the job will be low quality. Moreover, the staff will be unqualified. In addition to that, there probably are going to be constant shortcuts in order to get the job done quickly with no attention to details


Going ahead with no agreement

Not get anything down in writing.  It’s easy to go ahead with the works you want done simply based on the words from a builder. The problem with that way of doing things is that it’s very easy to forget who said what and what was to be done. The fact of the matter is once the work’s done, you’ll have a hard not asking for a written guaranteehe builder has disappeared from the scene. And because there’s no record of things, the homeowner will be left to pick up the pieces. If the contractor doesn’t want to go down that route, then you know you have come across someone you’ll want to pass on, quickly.

Not asking for a written guarantee

Ask a contractor “do you guarantee your work?” (which essentially means that – depending on the kind of job – that you the customer, will be covered against any kind of collapse, structural damage, botched up job and if after asking this question and the contractor says ” yes” but does not give you anything in writing, then that maybe the red light signal to put a halt on things. Professionals delivering excellent service and super quality work will have no hesitation in giving a written guarantee. And the real fact of the matter is that because it’s your home, and because you’ll be living there for some time to come, it just makes plain common sense to get the best job you can afford from a builder or construction company you can trust.

Who are designers and how do they affect our work environment?

Designers can be architects, engineers and others who work together during the design of a part of a building or facility. This means they can be involved in many different ways that can affect the work environment by:

  • constructing a frame, a facade, a roof

  • designing installations for electricity, heating and sanitation, ventilation, and control and regulation technology

  • designing the interiors of kitchens, bathrooms, industries, commerce

  • choosing building products and material.

The work of the designers creates prerequisites for both the building and the usage stage.

What responsibility does the designer have?

The designer has the responsibility of seeing that their structures, installations, or choice of product do not causing work environment risks in the building stage or the usage stage. Their responsibility is limited to that which they can influence within the framework of their work in a project.
