tips for planning out your commercial work

Tip one: start early

As soon as you obtain planning permission for commercial work and have it signed off, you should begin the preparation process immediately. There will be a lot to consider during the planning process, such as the length of the commercial work, the resources, the staff needed etc. so, you’ll want to input as much time into it as you are able. This saves for any last minute panic as the date when the work begins draws closer.

Tip two: health & safety is key

It goes without saying, but the health and safety quality of your impending site should be of the utmost importance during the planning stages. Ensure you run a full risk assessment on your prospective site and continually up until the date that the work begins. You should also filter in health and safety training sessions for staff so that they are fully prepared and aware of any potential risks.

Tip three: hire a skip early on

Hiring a skip may not cross your mind in the initial stages of planning out your commercial work, but it should do. Not hiring a skip early on can mean that when it comes round to needing one during the work, you’ll be stuck and this has the potential to hinder productivity. Hiring a skip is important as it reduces mess – and consequently risks – within building sites, and also makes waste disposal thereafter much easier.

Tip four: don’t be afraid to ask for help

The planning process of any project, let along commercial work is a big task at hand and sometimes, it’s just not feasible to let one person take responsibility. It’s okay to delegate tasks amongst relevant members of your team. Not only will this reduce your workload, but it’ll also ensure a higher quality job.

Tip five: recycle, recycle, recycle!
