Construction projects are planned well ahead of time to make sure everything and everyone stays on schedule. But even the most well-thought-out construction projects can suffer from unexpected design errors and mistakes.
We’ve compiled some of the most common construction mistakes so you know what to be on the lookout for during your own project and how you can avoid making these mistakes yourself:
1. Not fixing a mistake ASAP.
Some employers are willing to overlook a small mistake during a construction project if it means getting on with the work and finishing on time. But small issues in a construction project can lead to major problems later down the road if you’re not careful. Even if the problem doesn’t seem like much, that same problem can happen again if you don’t catch it and figure out why it happened. That said, as soon as you see a potential problem, stop the work and learn how it happened in the first place.
2. Not considering the weather forecast.
Summer may be hot and dry during most of the season, especially in west Texas, but summer is also the heart of hurricane season. That means rain can hit hard when you’re not expecting it. Keep yourself up to date with the weather forecast so you can plan ahead on the tools you’ll need for your project. Even if the monthly forecast isn’t correct by the day, you’ll have a general idea of what you and your team can expect.
3. Not having directional boring contractors on hand.
Traditional drilling works for a variety of projects, but it’s good to have directional boring contractors on call when you need them. The last thing you want to do is find out that you’ll need to be drilling by a residential area and you need to start looking for Texas directional boring services from scratch.
Looking for directional boring contractors in your area?
It’s no secret that horizontal directional drilling is the way to go when it comes to drilling safely and efficiently, especially when installing utilities. In fact, according to the 2017 Horizontal Directional Drilling Survey, telecommunications installation increased its HDD market to 24.4% in 2017 after being driven by a fiber-to-the-premises wave.
