Outsourcing within the Construction Industry has been an integral part of the Industry for decades. Specialist Sub-Contractors and Suppliers have been utilised in order to save Construction Companies Time, Money and Stress on Sites.
However, outsourcing within the Office-Based Roles and Tasks was not something that Companies had been as quick to take advantage of.
Now with expectations on companies in terms of Tendering Capacity, the Introduction of BIM, Higher Levels of Safety Standards and More Expectations in terms of Engineering, Documentation & Certification, companies are seeing that using external resources for these tasks is a more efficient and cost-effective way to work.
As all Construction Projects differ and the requirements for Pricing, BIM, Safety, Documentation etc. will increase and decrease respectively, companies can at times not justify paying a Full-Time role when realistically the person may only be needed 10 to 15 hours a week. This is where outsourcing becomes invaluable and allows companies control their overheads while still servicing their clients.
Companies like ESTIMATING-ME have built up knowledge and experience over years of working for companies and clients within the Industry. It is this knowledge and experience which allows the Outsourcing Companies to perform tasks more efficiently and effectively then internal unskilled people within the Construction Companies. This means the costs can be kept to a minimum and what is produced is done so on time and to an extremely high level.
Now with the industry experiencing another surge and with the Covid-19 Pandemic hopefully in our rear-view mirror, there has never been a better time to start utilising these outsourcing services. The introduction of software like Zoom and Teams means that even if the person is located offsite the communication lines can always be kept open and reviewing/finalising information can be done online and in real-time so there should be no downtime.
