Construction on the job site begins once the contractor has secured the task from the consultants. Contractors guarantee that the project is completed according to the agreed-upon quality, budget, and schedule. They get design instructions from the design consultant and run any design-related issues.
How does it feel to work as a contractor?
Site managers, civil engineers, quantity surveyors, and trades or craft employees work for contactors.
In all weathers, you work on sites (or from a temporary office on-site).
Depending on the project, you may be required to work shifts or overnight.
Working hours on site are normally longer (from 7.30 a.m. to 6 p.m.), and you may be required to work additional hours if things fall behind schedule.
In most cases, you only work on one project at a time.
You get to watch things being made right in front of your eyes, but you don’t get to make any changes to the original design.
Subcontractors may be able to assist contractors.
If any project activity necessitates the use of specialised skills or expertise, the contractor may offer the task to technical organisations. Subcontractors may be assigned to the following functions:
the construction of reinforced concrete
Plumbing and electrical work, as well as structural steelwork on the foundations.
Subcontractors are often smaller businesses. You’ll work on-site for a subcontractor and have similar working hours to contractors.
