Virtual Webinar: Top Challenges For Builders, Remodelers & Trade Partners in 2021
Top Challenges for Builders, Remodelers and Trade Partners 2021
What are the challenges that will impact building in 2021?
Covid/labor and material shortages, etc. are creating new challenges that are testing the partnerships between builders, remodelers and trade partners.
The panel will discuss how builders and suppliers/trades groups are working together (or should be) to address the many challenges being faced today, such as:
1. Skilled labor challenges
2. Material shortages and partial deliveries
3. Construction cycle delays caused by these issues
4. Rising material costs and the pressure on builder's financial performance - how can we work together to mitigate costs (without demanding pricing concessions from trades/suppliers)
5. Working together to maximize productivity, efficiency, reduced error and reworkreducing "dry runs" or return trips to install back-ordered materials
Attendees are encouraged to discuss these issues and to share ideas about how they've addressed them
