When you’re working on a multi-plot residential project, there are several challenges you may face due to the complexity and scale of them, especially if you’re a first-fit contractor. It’s important to find a dependable staircase manufacturer that understands these potential challenges and can support you in making your staircase project easier.
Common Challenges In Multi-Plot Residential Projects
Coordination and Scheduling
Multi-plot projects involve the construction of multiple units and shared amenities. That makes coordinating the construction timeline for various units, infrastructure and amenities challenging. If any delays arise within a specific segment of the project, the potential implications throughout the entire project could be significant. Given the volume of multi-plot projects, any setbacks or costs of remedial could have a much larger impact on other trades and the build schedule in general.
The ripple effects of such delays could result in extended time costs and escalated labour expenditures impacting the overall progression of the project.
Multi-plot projects inherently demand meticulous attention to a range of regulations, including zoning, building codes, environmental requirements and safety standards. So, if you're a contractor on a project like this, you would need to ensure each part of the project is compliant.
Checking and assessing compliance on top of keeping the project on schedule, just adds extra stress and opportunities for things to be missed.
Risk and Cost Management
Managing costs across multiple units, including labour, materials, and equipment requires careful budgeting and cost-tracking to optimise your potential profitability.
By avoiding ill-fitted staircases or late delivery that causes project delays, you’re eliminating the chance of extra remedial and labour costs.
Besides late delivery, you want to prevent early delivery as well. Having the staircase on the site too soon could lead to damage in a busy construction area or take up space needed for other work, and storing staircases before the installation phase may also add extra costs to the project.
6 Things To Look For In The Right Staircase Manufacturer
Experience with Multi-Plot Projects
Look for a staircase manufacturer with a proven track record of supplying staircases for multi-plot or large-scale residential projects. Their experience in handling similar projects demonstrates their ability to address unique challenges and meet the specific requirements of such a development, which translates to a higher likelihood of meeting project specifications, adhering to timelines, and contributing to a successful building project.
The right staircase manufacturer should offer a comprehensive project plan regarding the cost and time control of the project, that is tailored to your project’s needs, keeps uncertainties away and ensures that your project runs smoothly within your budget and without delay.
The fit-first-time commitment offered in the Staircase Success Service Plan ensures that your staircase will fit the first time around. This mitigates the risk of costly rework on site and project delay due to unexpected alterations, giving you assurance in the project's stability and successful completion.
In multi-plot projects, there's a higher chance you may need to cope with diverse architectural needs that call for a bespoke approach to staircase design. As each development has its unique needs and design requirements, aesthetically or practically, seek out a staircase manufacturer equipped with a choice of customisation options to develop a staircase that will complement your project.
On-Time Flexible Delivery
Having your staircases delivered to the right place at the right time is fundamental to keeping your project timeline on track. Confirm that your manufacturer has a reliable logistics process and guarantees a flexible on-time, in-full delivery service that could be catered to your project schedule. On top of that, make sure your stairs will be delivered straight to the plot with easily identifiable bundles – rather than just a huge pile of bits for the site to sort through. It gives you full control over the progression of your project whilst ensuring the staircase installation fits perfectly into your project timeline.
Consistent Quality and Compliance
Quality control is a particularly significant element in multi-plot projects as it ensures uniformity across multiple units. Make sure your chosen staircase manufacturer knows all relevant building codes and regulations and has compliance built-in within their designs. When a staircase manufacturer adopts approaches, such as conducting thorough on-site surveys to ensure accurate measurements prior to manufacturing and dry-fitting each staircase for quality check before delivery, it’s also a positive sign of assured product quality.
Select a staircase manufacturer that’s willing to go the extra mile and provide assistance and support long after the delivery of the stairs. So you can be confident that a committed team is always available to assist you throughout your project. Whether you need help during the fitting process or afterward, there's always ongoing support to ensure the lasting success of your staircase installation beyond the point of delivery.
