Almost every fortnight media claims to have shortage of construction talent in India. Catchy headlines and exaggerated statistical numbers mislead to the assumption that projects under construction are dormant because of lack of skilled labour in this field.Although there are plenty of skilled bricklayers, lighting & flooring professionals and carpenters around, locating and choosing the best ones work with is the main problem. So, why the whole myth on shortage of construction professionals then?
In an expert’s opinion, the skilled personnel are already here. In fact, many have left the industry because of the penny-pinched payouts by commercial contractors (a.k.a the lalas) and house-builders (a.k.a so called top builder companies). The country’s central hub, Delhi NCR has been suffering such shortcomings. It has its ups and downs however the reason behind cannot be tagged onto shortage in the talent pool. It is the aching gap between these organisations’ ethics towards it employees.
This gap can be dodged by working with a professional construction organisation that are not just transparent to their customers but also to their construction team. Most of the builders work with contract labour and civil engineers, which in a professional organisation will not be cheated and hence will never leave their task incomplete. Many a times, unions and movements add roadblocks to this talent connect with the right team of builders. Many, including skilled bricklayers, carpenters, roofers, plasterers, plumbers, heating engineers and electricians, have been looking for better pay. They seek for a stable and steady work expectations. Therefore, working with a professional regardless if its an organisation or an individual is coercive towards their delivery and agreements and would accommodate better talent.
Hire a builder which provides an integrated offering across multiple fields such as engineering, design, architecture, planning, compliance, etc. This form of a structured offering can be hard to find. However, some research can take one long way into a better home building journey. A professional organisation usually do not subcontract to other professionals rather have an in-house team that step into their roles with magnifying glasses, they transform a very personal journey to become a delivery oriented professional mechanism. While other continue subcontracting, the work to different professional teams which creates a lot of problem in scheduling and maintaining basic communication & collaboration among them. This adds a lot of variables to the equation of home building which with time turn into bottlenecks disturbing the whole timeline. On the other hand, if a professional organisation is opted for they have all inclusive team which brings about a divine synergy into the work. Eventually the process between the partner and home maker becomes extremely smooth & homes get constructed as well as delivered on time. The mechanism will involve compliance in a step wise layout, where land, property, material certifications and approvals will be handled extensively. Ingrain standardisation of various approvals will be in the pipeline throughout the home making journey. Hence the home or plot owner will never have to fall in any legal issues in context to their home. Finally, the client receives a complete hassle free experience in its true form.
