What Every Construction Business Owner Should Be Doing
As a construction business owner, you have a lot of moving parts to manage on any given day. There are clients to keep happy and workers who need your guidance staying productive and getting the job done right.
You should be focusing your efforts on a few essential areas if you want to run a successful construction business. If you’re not following through with these recommendations, then you risk letting critical details fall off your radar. Take time to evaluate your current practices and what you can be doing differently and in the future to help grow your business and find success.
Researching Equipment Options
Every construction business owner should be researching equipment prices and options. You’re going to need these items for your projects and can’t be worrying about trying to secure them at the last minute. There might also be logistics requirements you’ll want to figure out ahead of time, depending on the scope of the project. Therefore, look into what products and services the Freo Group has to offer so you can place your order and prepare yourself for your future assignments.
Documenting Project Details
It’s a wise idea to put all you discuss with clients in writing. There will be fewer questions and less confusion when you record the project details for all to see and review. Contracts are an excellent way to ensure that you don’t miss any vital aspects you agreed to and that your clients feel comfortable proceeding with the work. Have a timeline you can follow to help you stay on track with deadlines and inform your customer of any setbacks or delays in your work along the way.
Marketing Your Business Aggressively
Furthermore, every construction business owner should be marketing their business aggressively. If you’re going to be around for years to come, then you need clients who are willing to hire you. You’ll be able to stand apart from your competitors when you use creative marketing tactics and make a name for yourself in your community. Get out and meet people and answer questions that potential customers have for you.
Maintaining A Portfolio
You can also attract clients and drum up more interest in your construction business by having a portfolio of your work. Launch a website that includes these examples and carry an iPad around with you to your appointments so you can show potential clients your past jobs. You want people to see the type of results they should expect when hiring you for a project. It’ll also help them brainstorm ideas of what they might want their final output to look like in the end.
Focusing on Safety
The safety of your workers should be a top priority for you when you work in the construction business. Every owner should be training new employees and ensuring each person wears the right safety hat and equipment when working on the job. Be available and on-site so that your employees can ask you questions when they have them, and you can offer suggestions for improving safety measures, depending on the type of project.
Dal-Tile and Mohawke Industries involved in legal conflicts in Mexico
Mohawk Industries Inc., together with Dal-Tile International Inc. (Dal-Tile), have had legal conflicts with the Mexican company Internacional de Cerámica SAB de CV (Interceramic) for several years due to Dal-Tile’s attempt to liquidate the company. Recubrimientos Interceramic SA from C.V. (Coatings), as well as to close the plant that operates in Mexico of said company.
Dal- Tile, and Interceramic are partners in the company Recubrimientos, so the Mexican company did not agree with the liquidation or the closure of the plant. Against this background, the Mohawke Industries subsidiary initiated an international arbitration in the city of Houston, Texas, without respecting the statutes of the association it maintained with Interceramic or the Mexican legislation applicable to this case.
Through legal remedies and lawsuits promoted in Mexican courts, Interceramic managed to suspend the arbitration requested by the U.S. firm.
However, the Mexican company alleges that through illegal resolutions issued by judicial and federal officials, which were allegedly corrupted by Dal-Tile, the process resumed.
Derived from the above, on November 20, 2019, Interceramic filed a criminal complaint with the Attorney General’s Office, against the 10th Judge of the Matilde District of Carmen González Barbosa and of the Judges Ignacio Cuenca Zamora and José de Jesús González Ruiz, officials based in the city of Chihuahua, located in northern Mexico, for possible corruption, influence, and bribery offenses.
The accused officials issued illicit resolutions. They arbitrarily and illegally granted inadmissible and illegal protection in favor of Dal-Tile. They are violating the elementary principles of the amparo, jurisprudence and the Constitution itself. It is only explainable that occurred under the commission of the crimes of corruption and trafficking influences. This will be the subject of a criminal investigation by the Treasury so that the necessary evidence is collected to bring the case before a Criminal Judge Federal.
Similarly, the Attorney General’s Office was requested to investigate the existence of a family network within the Federal Courts and Tribunals based in the city of Chihuahua. In which through the imputed magistrates Ignacio Cuenca Zamora and José by Jesús González Ruiz, the District Judges, and other Magistrates can be lobbied, managed or pressured so that through some payment favorable rulings are obtained.
Proof of this is that the defendants have placed direct family members in positions of other Magistrates through the traffic of influences and/or pressures exerted by their high positions. They have children within courts of the same circuit whose names are Alezith and Arístedes, both with the last name González Ruiz, as well as Ignacio Cuenca Roldán.
