Working with a marine construction contractor is a great way to ensure your seawalls, boat lifts, and other structures are built and maintained correctly. When hiring Vogell Marine Inc. for your marine construction services, below are a few tips to work effectively with our team on your next project.
Create a Plan of Communication
Before your project begins, meet with your contractor to develop a clear outline of the plan and how any changes and updates will be communicated. Whether you are checking in by phone or stopping by the job site, you want to ensure the contractor is prepared to provide the information you want.
Track Changes to the Plan in Writing
Though the initial project plan should also be in writing, be sure to track any changes in written form as well. This will ensure your payment is on track, as well as any agreements the two of you make throughout the process. It is also good to make notes of any questions or concerns you have as they come up, so you can address them quickly and make changes as necessary.
Have a Flexible Mindset
Weather conditions, shipping delays, and equipment malfunctions can all cause the project to be put on hold. Remain flexible when it comes to the construction project. Your contractor will work to keep everything in line to the best of their ability, but it is good to have an open mindset when working with waterfront construction.
