Think Construction Stops in Winter? Think Again!
Despite freezing temperatures, icy conditions and winter weather warnings, the coldest months of the year may just be the best time to kick off your construction project!
Get The Teams You Want
The main advantage to beginning a project when many others aren't? The availability of teams who would be otherwise occupied! Choosing a kick-off date when things are slow for your preferred contractors and subcontractors allows them to put you at the top of their priority list.
Fewer Scheduling Delays
Missing deadlines is often caused by scheduling conflicts and bandwidth issues among contractors. With so many factors to consider; the timing of deliveries, production schedules and selection processes, there are a lot of potential delays and roadblocks.
Because winter is 'quieter' for most in the industry, you run less risk of 'snags' in the timeline.
With less projects on the books, many contractors may be willing to take on work for lower costs to keep their staff busy. Supply and demand!
Quicker Turnaround on Permits and Approvals Process
Once again, the overall decrease in construction projects leads to shorter lines and shorter review periods in permitting offices.
