How Confident Are You With Your Construction Partner?

The Value of a Trusted Construction Partner

Based on a 2018 study published by Forbes/Statista, building contractors were among the top 10 of America’s least trusted professions. Topping that list were members of congress, car salespeople, journalists, lawyers, bankers and real estate agents.

A lack of trust in the construction business is caused primarily by unscrupulous bidding practices, poor workmanship, and a failure to complete contracted projects within the timelines and budgets agreed upon by stakeholders. Don’t let this happen to you.

With so many crooked construction firms and subcontractors operating across the nation, it really pays to vet your construction partner with the utmost diligence. Dig deep. Look at their history. Take a close look at their past and present clients. Review their technical capabilities and the types of projects they have successfully delivered. You can also learn a lot about a prospective construction partner by their professional affiliations.

Regardless of the size and scope of your construction project, the value of knowing who you partner with is twofold: You will have greater peace of mind throughout your project; and you could save thousands of dollars in cost overruns or even legal fees.

According to KR Wolfe president, Rachel Wolfe, “We have worked tirelessly throughout our history to build a reputation for integrity transparency, and trust.  In fact, we have made trust an integral part of our corporate QUEST, which stands for Quality, Understanding and caring, Exceptional Service, and Trust and integrity. Unlike so many other firms, where such values are merely smoke screens and empty promises, we live and breathe these values every day—on every job site, and at every level of our organization.” To hear more about KR Wolfe’s culture centered around these values, listen to our podcast here.

Consistently following through on stellar customer service continues to secure KR Wolfe a steady stream of construction contracts from high-profile organizations in healthcare, technology, transportation, education, as well as the federal government.
