Course Title:

Managing Your Subcontractor Team

This course is critical for your business!!

The only way for you to guarantee that a project is built to your specifications and to the client’s requirements is to tell your subcontractors what you expect of them and then follow-up with inspections to make sure that your project quality requirements are met.

This course provides a process for doing that.

  • It starts with the TERMS and CONDITIONS document that tells each subcontractor how to behave on your project.
  • The specific SCOPE of WORK for each trade describes your expectations for what the subcontractor is to provide.
  • The PRE-START INSPECTION affirms that the windows weren’t broken or the bathtub scratched or the job site a mess before the subcontractor started work.
  • The EXIT INSPECTION determines whether or not the subcontractor has done the work you require, reduces call-backs and punch lists that go on forever, and provides the rationale for not paying the subcontractor until the phase is complete
