Common Subcontractor Related Risks and Productivity Issues
Once a contract is awarded, as the head contractor, the key objective is to deliver the project within budget, on schedule and to the agreed quality. A significant risk to achieving this is your selection of specialist trade contractors.
It is common for us to hear of projects where head contractors have had to scramble to source new or additional specialist trade contractors due to poor performance of those initially selected for the job.
This leaves you with the threat of liquidated damages and unhappy customers to contend with unless they incur the upfront cost of sourcing other specialists to help complete the job on time and to an acceptable standard. Managing this fallout from underperforming specialists is:
- Creates lost time in the schedule
- Increases the risk of liability disputes regarding quality of workmanship and any resulting latent defects
- Wastes a lot of time from key personnel such as project managers and quantity surveyors whose time could have been much better utilised elsewhere.
